LG’s C9 combines 4K HDR cinema screen design with advanced AI to further enhance both picture and sound. Perfect Colour on Perfect Black ensures real-world colour and contrast, while Dolby Atmos sound unites with Dolby Vision HDR for a cinematic experience. Use LG’s award-winning webOS Smart platform to stream shows from such apps as Netflix*, and navigate with the intuitive Magic Remote. With this Thinq AI TV you can interact by voice, with the Google Assistant and Alexa built in. Front-firing sound and a streamlined alpine stand mean its slim profile matches its spectacular visuals.

Impeccable 4K OLED Screen
Organic LED tech fuses with 4K resolution for superior contrast, colour and clarity. OLED pixels are self-lighting, meaning that they can switch on-and-off individually, for the deepest 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 true-to-life colour palette.

4K Cinema HDR with Dolby Vision
HDR deepens your view and shows 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. LG's 4K Cinema HDR supports multiple HDR formats including Dolby Vision, Advanced HDR by Technicolor and HDR10 Pro.

4K Ultra High Definition
This 55” screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p Full HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail.

Features:

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

Alpha 9 Gen 2 Processor: Powered by advanced AI, LG’s intelligent processor delivers a premium OLED picture, optimising picture and sound, whatever you’re watching.

Dolby Atmos Sound: immersive Dolby Atmos places sound within three dimensions for an enveloping soundscape, with you at the centre. Coupled with Dolby Vision HDR, it's a fully cinematic experience.

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.

4K High Frame Rate via HDMI : With full HDMI 2.1 compatibility, this LG TV can handle High Frame Rates for smoother motion, so even the most frantic sporting action is crisp and blur-free.

webOS Smart Platform
LG’s award-winning webOS platform revolutionises how you experience your entertainment. With simple and intuitive content discovery and switching, there’s more entertainment available than ever before. You can stream Sky Movies or Sports through NOW TV, 4K UHD content through Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, the latest movies and TV from Google Play and TalkTalk TV stores, and music from Spotify or YouTube.*

Advanced Voice Control & Smart Compatibility
This Thinq AI TV has the Google Assistant and Alexa built in, so you can get answers to questions while you're watching TV. You can also control compatible smart devices, and check your Google photos or Google Calendar on the TV screen (Google sign-in required). It’s also compatible with Apple Airplay 2 and Homekit devices.

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 My5 are also available without having to open specific applications. This gives effortless scroll back so you never miss a second of your favourite shows.

Streamlined Design
The thin and light OLED screen exudes cutting edge elegance. Finished with a streamlined Alpine Stand, its architecture funnels the TV's front-firing sound directly at the viewer and enhances the viewing experience.

There are two types of OLED owner.

1. Those that understand screen burn is a real issue and do their best to mitigate, with full knowledge they may only get 5 years out of the TV
2. Those that will soon get a rude awakening after claiming for the last year it's not an issue, "because mine is perfectly fine so you must be an idiot".

This is why I won't ever buy an OLED until they get around this problem.

I want to buy a TV to use, not to carefully 'run it in' then have to constantly worry about how I use it.

I just want to watch the telly goddammit without them damn picture ghosts!

Screen burn in is not an issue. Plenty of tests on you tube, check them out

This is what I've read too
although, think it would be for me, watch lot of cricket and the cumulative effect of sky sports logo would worry me!

This seems a really good price for the c9, if not for the above I'd be seriously tempted!

I think it's more to do with people not being careful enough. Absolutely nothing to do with someone's IQ.
There are countermeasures to reduce the chance of it, not prevent it completely.

Keep waiting. Depends on LG's CES announcement next month on how this will drop.
It is interesting that the top end Samsung q90 price is holding up much better than the OLEDs from LG and Sony. Perhaps the fear of screen burn in is actually driving peope to Samsung.

Maybe, or it could be the fact Samsung always have some promotion, be it cashback or "free" phone, soundbar, etc.

Are dead pixels common? I’ve got a big one right in the middle of the screen and I don’t know whether to swap it out. I have a 4K monitor with no dead pixels and I’ve never had one before. I hope curry’s will let me if I do decide to.

I'd say if under a year then claim under warranty. I'd speak to the manufacturer directly first then see what Currys come up with. At least that want you will get a better indication on the outcome. Plus if curry become a bit effy about it then go back to the manufacturer telling them how disappointed you are etc. I've always had success with manufacturers over retailers when it comes to warranty. Unless you bought for John Lewis or Richer Sounds

Oh I got it yesterday so I’m well within the 30 days return period. Judging from your comment it’s best I do it. I was just worried that it would be pointless if it’s normal for oleds.

Edit: I’ll call them up within the next couple days and hopefully they’ll exchange it. It’s annoying as it took a while to set up. I’ve checked with my family’s 4K TVs and none of them have dead pixels so it seems to be a proper fault. It’s an excellent tv otherwise.

Hmm, yes... will you please take your wild unsubstantiated aspersions you're casting over OLED TV owners elsewhere.

You get screen burn if you leave a static image on the screen for hours on end, day after day.

And if you do that, quite frankly you deserve what you get.

If you deny yourself one of the best pound for pound TVs avaiable becasue of scaremongering, it is your loss.

Heat for the (cracking) deal

True, but it is not as effective as the Sony variant.
Have a look in the settings ... sure I have seen a YouTube review from the Techgiant stating there is a pixel refresh option....
Is PRC Direct good and trustworthy to buy from, specially with the warranty stuff and whether anybody knows the warranty is with themselves or through a third party?

Good luck. Pfft that's a relief it's not even over 48 hours. Timestamp a picture against the deadpixel (use a newspaper with date and front page) as proof. I'm sure you'll be alright regardless

The pictures have their own time stamp so fine on that front. Just hope I’m not being too OCD about it as I usually obsess over little things. Having looked at it closer now it actually seems like it’s 2 or 4 dead pixels right next to each other that seems to be the issue.

I used to work for Curry's, any dead pixels within the center 75% of the screen was always an instant swap in first 28 days. If it was outer 25% there had to be a cluster of 4-6 or more, although we'd often swap out even if there was less than that, but I guess that's more down to store discretion.

Yeah they’re right in the middle of the screen. I had an even closer look and it’s actually 9 dead sub pixels rather a few full dead pixel. The white OLED still works. Thanks for the info
