”A big and beautiful TV with a vibrant picture rich in detail.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

OLED – the TV gold standard

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 9 processor – a new reference in picture processing
New to this exciting LG TV is the powerful Alpha 9 processor. With increased processing power, Alpha 9 enhances motion handling for smoother images. Object-based contrast is also improved, giving sharper, more detailed images. With Alpha 9 you’ll see images with truer realism than ever.

True Colour Accuracy Pro
For even greater realism, True Colour Accuracy Pro increases the amount of data points for colour. This makes flesh tones more accurate, landscapes more natural and animations more vivid. No matter what the genre, True Colour Accuracy makes it more life-like 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 65" 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.

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 OLED65C8PLA.

Yes, me too!

It also winds me up like you can’t have an RS6 Avant for less than £50k brand new while A6 Avant 2.0 TDI costs around £35k brand new with passable spec!
The world has gone crazy! Clearly the two are cars with 4 wheels and steering wheel! Virtually the exact same thing!!!

If you actually own one, you'll see why there is such a difference in cost.
Love tv threads, they are hilarious.
Everyone’s an expert
If someone likes a tele and it does the job they want for £100 or £3000, who gives a sh*t
People really need to get out more instead of arguing over who’s viewing of coronation street is best.
Voted hot. Wish I needed a new tv.
This should be around £1600 in a few weeks

Don't feed the troll all!!
The new oleds are shipping to major suppliers this month so I’m pretty sure these TVs will drop a couple hundred more to make space for new oleds. Cracking deal for now tho, il be sure to pick one up when it reaches around 1500 -1600 mark which shouldn’t be so long. Heat added
The price difference is simply because OLED is better. There isn't an argument for it. It's a better technology, if you see the difference or not doesn't mean it doesn't exist

Really, you will find the Q9 is rated by some independent reviewers as superior in display quality to OLED.

Both OLED and QLED provide a stunning display. I do not keep claiming one is inferior.

Of course these "inferior" QLED provide a 10-year warranty to non-existent screen burn. LG know OLED has screen burn issues so refuse to provide a warranty. OLED is so superior, it has an inherent issue of screen burn and cannot even hit half the nits of a top QLED. Genius.

Plasma was killed off by LCD.
OLED will be killed off micro-LED. Wait and see.

You went from taking about a deal on an inferior Q8 which doesnt exist, to taking about about a Q9.

Lcd didn't kill off plasma due to better picture quality so that it's irrelevant.

CURRENT available technology, OLED is the gold standard.

It seems you have not read the reviews. Q9 was rated better than OLED, by some, not all.
Of course a deluded person cannot understand that thet may be on par with each other.

OLED = low nits, greater lag, screen burn issues to name a few. Gold standard = no screen burn warranty!
This is not gold standard to some.

If Q8 was £1199 I stand by my view the £1999 is too high for this model. Of course you will argue £3999 is reasonable.

The Q8 would represent a better deal but that does not mean this TV is over priced. This is a better TV.

You seen strangely protective of Samsung. How weird. They have nice oled screens on their phone though.

In my view £1999 is overpriced. I am entitled to my view. You are entitled to yours.

I am not protective of Samsung. You are just a LG fanboy who cannot see the other side.

I have, in the past, filed legal action against Samsung via MCOL and happily settled. Samsung, in my view are a poor company!
But having said that £1199 for Q8, to me makes this overpriced. This televisioon to me, is not worth £800 more.

I have a Samsung plasma TV.

Your view is clearly not a shared view given the heat on this deal.

Where is the Q8 for 1199. Nowhere.

I had a Samsung Plasma. It was replaced by the Q8 as the plasma has vertical lines down the screen. Poor quality!

The Q8 was £1199 with a 5 year warranty from Samsung Experience Stores 27th-29th Dec 2018 as discussed on this site.

As I said, it is not available at this price now (if you read responses), in the same way S9 mobile was £353 via o2 refresh on 5th Dec 2018 (yes, I got that deal too).

So, to me any price above £1199 for the Q8 is obviously a poor deal and £1999 for this is also poor. If one pays £1999 for a Q8 then they may think £1999 is good for this set, until they discover what the price for Q8 was less than 4 months ago.
I even got the UE6NU7400 for £566.39 with 5 year warranty. Look at the prices now (I know it is not QLED or OLED standard).

Sorry, I only buy "real" deals and not standard prices!


So, at what price is this televison a bad deal. in your view? How about £3999, £10,999? At what point do you say the price is too high?

Shame about the TV you have now, it's poor quality. You obviously aren't bothered by the quality and are concerned more about the size and brand.

I paid 600 for my Samsung plasma 7 years ago and I'd argue its still gives a better picture quality on 99 percent of available material than the Q8 one youre unhealthily obsessed with. Therefore, your 1199 deal is no good in my opinion and that set is way overpriced.

You got a good deal. I paid £650 10 years ago and had it repaired once by JL. It was not used much either.
It also suffered screen burn! It did look dated with the massive bezel.

7 years old and not even 4k and claimed to be better than a Q8. Your intelligence is obvious!

I bet you have never even viewed a Q8. You would find it too bright compared to your plasma.

If plasma were still available, I admit I would have considered them, as I actually prefer them to LCD.
I cannot justify £1999 for OLED when QLED (considered on par with OLED by independent reviewers) was £1199.
Then I have the screen burn issues due to someone now watching the same channel for 10-hours a day displaying a stupid logo.
This is normal use for them!

I am not obsessed with the Q8. I simply used the price as bench mark and nothing more. You do not understand this point.
If a LG 65" OLED was £1199 I would have considered it. I do not see £800 difference as justfied. Surely, you can see that!

No screen burn on mine, but I don't watch cartoon network in my mums basement all day.

Please clarify how the age of 7 years will mean that it can't match an inferior technology screen made within the last couple of years. It's not relevant. The TV is 51 inch, 4k will have no impact at my viewing distance of 8 feet.

There isn't an 800 pound price difference. Your deal doesn't exist.

You can't conclude the size of my living room based on my seating position from the TV!

Obsessed with Q8 but bought something else. But deep down wants a deep blacked luscious superior OLED.

Contrast is achieved by having deep black levels. Let me guess you have your Lcd on the shop settings with the dynamic contrast set to high!

Very interesting article!

Won’t put me off buying OLED at all but will certainly follow this up now and do my own research.

I will no doubt download test patterns and check my OLED when I get it and if affected, replace one after another one until fixed:) what’s the 6 years warranty for if not for that, eh?:)

If only I could take a photo that justifies how good the picture on this tv is.....?
Another option,
1: Choose a nice clear day.
2: Clean a window in your house extremely well on both sides.
3: Look through it to the outside.

This is the best comparison I can make.

There's a freakin' Leopard in my garden!!!!!!!!!!!
Haha that reminds me, my cousin's Labrador was watching birdies in Our Planet on an LG C8...then ran away when he saw polar bears!
Just purchased this using the OLED200 code plus 2.02% cashback through TCB.

I know the new ones are around the corner but the old stock seems to sell out quickly so then I would be stuck with purchasing a 2019 version at £2800.

Could some kind wonderful person please sort of tell me the difference between Qled and Oled?.... I saw a Panasonic TX65FX952B in Currys today, OMG it was flippin amazing, the blacks & whites were unlike anything I've ever seen, the crisp colours, and the soundbar that comes built in sounded amazing..... so much so that I've almost ordered it earlier from richer sounds, but I don't know if I'm getting carried away, so many 5 star reviews tho, my mind's saying just get it ordered, but my credit card is saying Nooooooooo!!
Looked at so many different tv's lately, Oled/Qled, my heads gonna fall off
Advice please, taa muchly
Stock wise, I chatted to RS Holborn store today and they kindly confirmed most stores had a at least a few 65C8 in stock, with around 50 currently in the central warehouse and a large order of 500 or so coming in shortly.

You'll get different people recommending both. Both will produce a great picture providing the content is good. Samsung's QLED is based on the standard LED panels whereas LGs (and other brands) are based on OLED. Have a Google for the comparisons.

I ended up going with the 65 c8 LG, we've had it for a week and we are really good with it. It's in a room with a 4.2m bifold door and 3 large roof windows but it still works with plenty of light in here
