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
Newto 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.

Let the idea burn-in... ... and just buy the Samsung Q9FN instead.


That old chestnut!!
Trolls!!
I was in John Lewis today looking at these big ass TVs. They are amazing. It's been a long time since I've looked at buying a new TV. "I cannot see a picture being better than my 21", Sharp, CRT TV with the fat back. It's even got a SCART socket".

I've been waiting for a deal for ages on this TV.. now the times actually come. I'm so afraid to drop that cash -_-
Don't be afraid, fantastic TVs.
C9 coming baby,
So many improvements!!!
Hoping for a better drop, any ideas what the c7 went for last year when this came out?

Agreed but is it currently £1400 better?
Tempting! Will it come down more though with the c9 out?
Nice price. Have some heat op
High frame rate (120Hz) not supported via HDMI on this. Only via streamed content.

All in good time sir... I always wait at least 6-8 months.
There are great improvements from the c8.
I'm still running a B7, and didnt upgrade to c8 as only minor diffs.

This time it's a whole new ballgame!

The code also works on the C9, so £1200 difference
i assume the 6 year richer sounds warranty doesn't include/cover burn-in?

(despite the warranty text saying 'no quibbles, no fuss, etc)


To answer my own question, no

If your purchase is over 30 days old but within the manufacturer or extended guarantee period -
If a fault develops after 30 days but within the guarantee period, we will provide a speedy, free-of-charge repair. Simply return your faulty item to your local store where one of the team will get it booked in for repair.

Please note there are a number of manufacturers who prefer to deal directly with our customers in the event of a fault, as they feel they are better placed to carry out the repair during the guaranteed period. In these cases, their details can be found at the bottom of your receipt. We are still the legally responsible party and in any event we very much want to retain your goodwill.

Excludes styli, abuse, excessive wear and tear e.g. commercial use, screen burn caused by channel logos or other static images, dead pixels of an amount not covered by the manufacturer’s specifications (statutory rights not affected).

Cold, no 3d option despite cinemas showing 3D and companies STILL releasing films on blu-ray 3D.

The technology/feature to have it produced on screens is minimal. I have the last model released of the LG 4k 3D tv's

Some would use it, some wouldn't, but it stops me from upgrading no matter how good the 4k picture is or what improvements there are.

Part of me is very tempted to just make the commitment with the C9. I'm listening to reviews about future-proofing and 120hz refresh rate on the C9 and thinking... If I'm going to spend £1300+ on a TV I want it to be able to do my shopping for me of a week... I feel like the extra £1k would be worth it. However, I'm happy to be proven wrong!

Each to his own but one way of thinking about it is that you could buy this one for £1300 now, put the £1000 extra you saved aside and potentially in a years time but the C9 for £1300 and have 2 TV's. If you wanted you could then sell the C8 to cover more than the difference or if you decide in a year that 120hz is actually overkill just keep the C8 for longer (2,3,4,5 years) and not have to spend that extra £1k.

I know which I'd do. I'm very tempted by one of these but for me almost all of the content that I watch is 1080p and I have a 4k projector for when I want to watch something special so for now, while the tech continues to mature and come down in price I'll stick with my 5 year old panasonic ZT plasma. I'm not saying it's better than these, just that it all depends on what set up you have and what you will need. If I didn't have a TV now and wanted a nice one I'd be looking for one of these.

I'm coming at this from having bought a 55" 9 Series Curved SUHD TV UE55KS9000TXXU two years ago so I don't own a bad TV but the opportunity to upgrade to a brand new OLED panel with £200 off is very tempting.

Thats nothing, i bought an E6 65" back in 2017 for £3300 and it developed a fault which couldn't be fixed, took it back to store last week and they issued me a full refund. Money is back in my account and now i fancy the C9 and i can't bring myself to part with the money eventhough i wasn't expecting it
Re. Screen retention, it does happen. My brother has it after initially telling me it would never happen to him. Seems half an hour of bbc news channel during week days was enough. Luckily for him he has accidental damage insurance, accidents do happen..

I paid £100 more for this on the last Black Friday.
Worth... Every....penny.
I caved! bought it a couple of hours ago. I talked to my local store and bought it with the OLED200 discount. They also removed the delivery charge for me since I couldn't put it in my car.

Bank account isn't as pretty as it used to be so fingers crossed I don't punch my own face next week for this!

Been using for two months. TV is settled and looks amazing. Bought SK9Y sound bar. Messed with the settings for a few weeks as wasn't looking good on different channels on Sky. Now perfect.

Was looking at the SKY9 as well to go with my OLED but never took the plunge.... still in my mind though. What's your opinion thoughts on it? Worth the money?

Image retention and burn-in are different. One is temporary the other is permanent. Had a B6 for 3 years and no problems with BI here, but if watching a lot of TV with the same on screen logo, or playing games for thousands of hours a time, it would be wise to look elsewhere. Anyone using their TV 'normally' shouldn't be wary of burn in though.

Half an hour a day, on week days only of bbc news and the TV has permenant screen burn, ticker banner along the bottom. Is that abnormal TV usage?
Amazing deal. I was £2299 in November and still waiting on my £100 coming through. Blinder!

Another no nothing. 2 years on owning an LG B7 and no burn in...14 years on with my Pioneer 506 Plasma still no screen retention (remember plasma? those were the days) And the same bores said the same old boring, no nothing, boring ignorant comments.
Great price for the best available TV's out there, not a 2nd best LCD OLED wannabe.
Awesome TV I have 55inch. Great for gaming aswell. Burn in isn't a problem either
Decided to stick with the C8 rather than spend the extra on the C9. You can just about get 2 C8's for the price of 1 C9 (55" model) so I think that made my mind up for me. Also I found an image on another website that showed teh price of teh 65" C8 on April 16 last year and it was £4,000!! So given how fast they drop in price it doesn't seem worth it being an early adopter, at least not for me. As I am coming off a very early Samsung JU series 4K tv I suspect I will notice the difference on teh C8.
