Bask in the colour-rich realism of the 4K HDR OLED picture with LG's C8. A beautifully thin OLED panel, pin-sharp 4K UHD resolution and a stunning HDR colour-scape combine for an awe-inspiring picture. Powered by the Alpha 9 processor, enjoy Perfect Colour on Perfect Black, while Dolby Atmos sound provides truly immersive audio. Use LG’s award-winning webOS Smart platform to stream shows from such apps as Netflix*, interact by voice with its intelligent Thinq AI, and navigate with the intuitive Magic Remote. Add a hyper-modern touch of class to your living room with its streamlined Alpine Stand, which is designed for optimum delivery of the TV's sound. With spectacular visuals and audio, the C8 will revolutionise your home entertainment.

Impeccable 4K OLED Screen
Fusing OLED tech with 4K resolution, this set’s contrast, colour and clarity make viewing simply one-of-a-kind. OLED pixels are self-lighting, meaning that they can switch on-and-off individually to conjure inky blacks and super-bright whites. Compared to regular LED screens, LG's panel adds an extra white sub-pixel, delivering ultra-fine gradation and a colour palette that’s virtually true-to-life. This 4K OLED set is a majesty to behold.

Stunning Cinema HDR Visuals by Technicolour
LG are one of the forerunners of contrast and colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR). As members of the UHD Alliance, they've delivered top-shelf HDR to deepen your view and show shades previously unseen in home entertainment. Expanding light, dark and every colour in between to extraordinary new levels, this model's picture gets closer to real life. This set supports multiple HDR formats including Dolby Vision so whatever entertainment you're enjoying, you'll always get the full, glorious HDR treatment with pin-point accuracy. With HDR tuned by Hollywood experts Technicolour, the result is a beautifully cinematic image, at home.

4K Ultra High Definition
To respond to screens getting bigger, brands have packed their screens with more pixels. This 55” screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p Full HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail. And 4K upscaling increases the clarity of non-4K content.

Features:

Perfect Colour on Perfect Black: thanks to the OLED screen's self emitting pixels, colour representation is astonishingly lifelike and wide-ranging, on a background of perfect blacks and dark shades.

Alpha 9 Processor: powering the display is LG's a9 Intelligent Processor, optimized to deliver a premium OLED experience of exceptional accuracy and HDR detail.

Dolby Atmos Sound: fully immersive Dolby Atmos places sound within three dimensions for a stunningly enveloping soundscape, with you at the centre. Coupled with such stunning visuals, it's the full cinema experience.

Perfect Clarity: with the super-fast response speeds of OLED pixels, movement is fluid and free from blur. Perfect for fast-moving action, taking you further into high-octane action movies or the sporting spectacle.

Thinq AI: bringing the intelligence and convenience of voice interaction to the living room, this Thinq AI TV can listen, think and respond to your questions.

Seamless webOS Smart Platform
Revolutionising the way you watch and experience entertainment on your LG TV is the award-winning Smart TV webOS platform. Delivering a simple connection, simple switching and simple discovery, there is more entertainment available than ever before. You can stream Sky Movies or Sports through NOW TV, 4K UHD content through Netflix or Amazon, the latest movies and TV from Google Play and TalkTalk TV stores and even music from Spotify or YouTube.*

Freeview Play
This LG TV features Freeview Play. Combining catch-up TV, on-demand services and live television, watching what you want, when you want, is now easier than ever. It’s free from subscription and is compatible with existing broadband services too. Services such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5 are also available without having to open specific applications. This gives effortless scroll back so you never miss a second of your favourite shows.

Super Streamlined Design
The beautifully thin and light OLED screen is bonded to a single metal sheet for superbly stylish, cutting edge design. Finished with a streamlined Alpine Stand in black and brilliant silver, its architecture funnels the TV's audio directly at the viewer, enhances the viewing experience, and completes the stunning looks of a beautifully designed television.

Perfect partners
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TV’s sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.
Take a look at our full range of soundbars.

Don't forget...
If you want to connect your TV to a blu-ray player, games console, soundbar or soundbase then you'll need a HDMI cable.

no hdmi 2.1
Last year's c7 was £3k at launch now it's half that price, this will happen with c8, the opening price is for rich/techies.
2016-2017-2018 all use the same panel, very small differences and certainly not worth 2699.
If you want OLED at a good price get a 2017 model.

The new Alpha 9 processor is the most amazing processor ever, the Lucky Goldstar man said so at CES the other month, I heard him say so.

So if you love the brand and OLED is for you this is a very big difference and all you've ever dreamed of so clearly worth double the price which makes this amazingly hot for all Lucky Goldstar devotees

You'd like to think LG learnt a little about stock levels this year so perhaps not quite the bargain fest it was this time but runout season is definitely the right time to buy any high end tv. It also means any of the software glitches they always manage to introduce should've been ironed out and whether there are any sets that should just be avoided regardless of cost.

The fact the 75“ Q7 retails at a monkey more than that 82" MU whatever you're getting on one about would suggest there's a huge difference in quality within Samsung's own ranges never mind up against the latest release OLED.

I'm no Lucky Goldstar fan and I still remain to be convinced by OLED in general as regards issues like screen burn but even I wouldn't try lobbing a Samsung budget set in to the debate because of it's substantially larger screen size, you've backed a loser there pal.
I wouldn’t say £3200 is a budget set pal imo
im just not Convinced with oled
I just think they are well over priced for what your getting
there are so many 4k sets out there at half the price as this which can produce a outstanding picture

That would be why I bought a 65" XE9005 at launch this time last year, why I stated "I remain to be convinced by OLED" in my previous post and why I'm loitering with intent for a decent enough price drop on the 55" Q8 to bite because it's one of them I want for our bedroom.

My OLED scepticism is why I'm digging my heels in on sticking with the Q8 or perhaps the Q7 if it goes stupid cheap even though Mrs Loyal has now had her head turned by the POS9002's Ambilight as she thinks it will look "pretty" in the bedroom

I know there's some won't like me pointing it out but I'm sorry the MU series is very much Samsung's bog standard range so it's not being a techie snob calling it budget, the prices illustrate this to be the case.

As someone who paid well over 2 grand for a 1080p 40" Sony more than a decade ago and 1800 quid for 720p 'HD Ready' 32" Panasonic about 13 years ago I would say an 82" at 3 grand is very much in the realms of budget televisions, even now in a time where technology seems to just keep getting cheaper and cheaper.
The B8 will be available soon, that may be around the £2000-£2500 mark but does not have the New A9 Processor
Saying the A9 Processor is the best ever means very little, it'd be like Intel or AMD spouting it every few months about their latest and greatest.
The reviews and industry articles all say this year is another advance year (just like last) and not revolution sized in quality jump. A processor/algorithm has yet to have been created to magic up missing detail in lower quality none 4K media; which is what the majority of people will want or enhance motion greatly, until higher frame rate broadcast/material appears which is years off.
If people are willing to pay twice the price have at it.
It says something when Sony and Panasonic are going to release models which are 500, 700 and 1000 pounds less.

The Lucky Goldstar Volunteer Force reserve the right to defend their beloved brand against Panasonic, Samsung and Sony aggression by any means necessary.

You only have to look at how rabid some get at the slightest criticism of the manufacturer they have invested in, they're nearly as partisan as Nintendo fans
is the a9 processor just motion interpolation? if off is it just like having true motion off on 2016 17 models?

No they dont,the 2018 panels have a different pixel structure

Lol that doesn't mean it's a different panel.
Go watch LG interview on avforums youtube channel and the LG engineer himself says that it's the same panel.
This is why no difference in brightness and colour gamut this year compared with 2017 models.
Just because the pixels are arranged differently does not mean a new panel.
When LG use a new oled panel it will be using top-bottom emission panel to improve brightness by 20% which likely will be released next year.
LOL,how can the same panels have a different pixel structure ????
And they are measuring more NITS on the new panels ,take a look at the AVS forum

Picture of the difference in sub pixel structures in 2017 and 2018 panels

Check the picture i just posted and watch the link
If this is anything like the OLED55B7V or OLED55C7V it will have a stunning picture but it’s twice the price! If you want a good deal shop around for a bargain 2017 model.

It may have 120Hz frame rate, HDR+, improves voice control and even different pixel structure but I seriously doubt they are very significant improvements. The 2016/2017 LG OLEDs offer pretty much the ultimate picture quality already and it’s not worth buying double for some questionable benefits.
