OLED – the gold standard for TV

Highly developed by LG, OLED TV technology remains at the forefront of image quality. Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) TV offers the most advanced picture quality currently available. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

Alpha 7 processor – for enhanced picture processing
This LG TV features their advanced Alpha 7 processor. This provides improved processing over and above a quad-core chip. With the more powerful processing comes improved picture quality. Advantages including enhanced image rendering, improved shadow details and smoother motion, all giving a more realistic image than ever.

The widest range of HDR support with Active HDR
LG continue their wide range of HDR support with this flexible TV. Advanced HDR by Technicolor offers reference levels of image and colour accuracy. As well as Advanced HDR, this 55" LG TV also offers decoding for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision. HDR10 is widely used on UHD gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Dolby vision-equipped TVs, like this LG, can decode both generic HDR content and content that's specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

High Frame Rate Support via OTT*
High Frame Rate (HFR) support at up to 4K/120fps means the potential for smoother images with incredibly realism. With a variety of films filmed in HFR since the ground-breaking The Hobbit of 2012, this is the future of movie technology. The technology is also available on some TV shows and is especially impressive with sport. *OTT means that HFR is supported Over The Top using apps such as Netflix 4K. It is not available via HDMI inputs on this TV or simultaneously with HDR.

Part of the unique ThinQ AI system for effortless control
LG’s unique artificial intelligence system brings together a wide range of products under intuitive control. For your TV this means intelligent voice control and the ability to seamlessly work with third party services from Google and Amazon. The more LG ThinQ AI products you have around the home the more seamless and integrated the control becomes.

webOS Smart system now with Google Assistant
The award-winning LG webOS smart TV system is already one of the most highly-rated in the industry. Powerful but user-friendly, webOS makes Smart TV even smarter. Now featuring Google Assistant, webOS just got even better. Google Assistant is capable of changing the channel and input via voice command. It also integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your TV an even greater source of entertainment.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

Don’t settle for less. Go for the best, with the LG OLED55B8S.

I've just bought the 65 of this TV and will be flogging my Philips 55POS9002 this weekend on eBay £1 fvf.

The picture is awesome, ambilight + hue is great. Interface is crippling. Ok if you go straight to a firestick or PS4 but if you use the DVB guide or smart interface it's horrible.
I'm already tightrope walking on the fence about this damn TV! I didn't need another thread where its cheaper!

As usual if anyone is looking to buy LG B8 and would like to see some videos about it then I have made plenty that others have found useful.Videos included the unboxing and set up of both the 55 and 65 inch,demos of low quality TV content,gaming,tips and tricks and loads more.

PM me if interested ; )
What would u suggest I get, oled or qled, I know oled has a better picture but my room is mostly bright from sunlight
Should I purchase now, or wait another month.

I'm thinking in a months time all the new LG OLEDs will be available and shops will be bringing the 2018 prices even lower to clear the stock.

I’d definitely be using it just for the Apple TV and Gaming, so it sounds like it might be worth a look.
Sounds like a very good tv

Only due to dvt interface. Press guide, sound stops, 3 seconds later, Guide appears without programmes filled in. 5 seconds later, programs showing, no pip like LG. Page down and waiting again. Supposed to be update in October from Philips but never came.

Doesn't matter how bright your room is - that's a rumour. OLED, 100%.

That's not quite true. I have a B8 and with the curtains open and the sun streaming in it's fine for the most part but can be a bit annoying watching anything with darker scenes as it reflects everything and doesn't look quite the same, I wouldn't want to watch John Wick 2 for example in a really bright room. Something like the Q9FN with it's anti-reflection screen would likely be better in that scenario.

Luckily it's not on during the day much and the room only gets the sun in the morning.

I did and it works. Estimated payable 10 weeks.

Only thing the cash back is applied to £828 instead of £989. Don’t know why...

Original price minus vat?

Original price minus vat?


I've done the maths and it's exactly 20% so yes, I think that is the reason.
Great TV if you get a good panel my first had banding issues and then dead pixels. My replacement panel is amazing. Have to say LG were great replacing the panel through equinox.

Ask John Lewis to price match. Purchase it now then if the price drops within 30 days of purchase by them or a competitor, John Lewis will refund the difference. Best of both worlds.
I'm not an OLED person but this is an amazing price for this TV and even I would have considered it if I was looking for a TV.

Can you tell me how you access the freeview play I haven’t fathomed it yet do you have to be connected to an aerial or just connect to the internet thanks only recently set the tv up cheers
Edited by: "Doran1965" 22nd Mar
Would this be the same model as this one ? johnlewis.com/lg-…161


It looks similar but this one at JL has a couple of extra digits after the model number, asking because we can get JL discount


Thanks
