What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Broke down I bought this about 6 months ago and it played fine, but locked up on me a couple of times and had to unplug it and reboot it. Then recently it just would not boot up anymore. It would load the LG icon then the screen went blank. It would not reboot at all. I had to send it in under warranty and haven't recieved it back yet. I hope it will be repaired or replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the features and the use of one remote control for both the player and LG tv.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love that it has Dolby Vision! I bought this player when I got my new TV so I could watch 4k Dolby Vision and this player doesn't disappoint. Only thing I would like from it is more smart features. It only has YouTube and Netflix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No complaints about this Blu-Ray player Easy to hook up, easy to use. I bought this to work with my new LG TV, and it works great. No problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features As of this writing, it's only one of three players that has Dolby Vision. The other player is around the same price and the other one is more than double. For the price of this unit, you cannot beat the feature set. I did hear of noisy drives with earlier builds. I purchased a Dec'17 build and so far it is whisper quiet when playing 4K UHD Blu-ray's. It is simple to set up and you will be up and running in no time. I recently watched Jumanji 4K UHD on my Dolby Vision capable TV through this player. Holy smokes, it looked spectacular. It is also capable of passing Dolby Atmos if your system is so equipped. Excellent player and I am extremely satisfied.

Seriously thinking of purchasing a LG 4K TV and UP970 Blu-ray but very disappointed with ratings here and on Amazon, problems of no Dolby Vision software/firmware updates????? Problems from many with noisy operations??? Has this been fixed yet?? 4-7-18

Asked by: cobreeco
Hello, the UP970 received the Dolby Vision update a couple of months ago. Less that 1% of the units sold have experienced noise and those seem to have received some sort of shipping/transport damage. ^AC

I understand about Regional codes & restrictions on playing Blu Rays & DVDs. My question is simple, will the UP970 play 50hz discs? Some models & brands will and others won't. Thanks in adavance.

Asked by: naus
Regrettably, we are not familiar with 50 Hz discs. Movies are shot at 24 frames per second (fps), and although advanced digital TVs support 24 fps and can display movies natively, analog TVs and many digital TVs cannot. As a result, movie material must be converted to either 30 interlaced frames or 60 progressive frames by the DVD player or TV. Since 24 does not divide evenly into 60, four progressive movie frames are converted to five interlaced or 10 progressive frames. The process, known as "3:2 pulldown" or "2:3 pulldown," cannot create a flawless copy of the original movie because 24 does not divide evenly into 30 or 60. Although new movies on DVD are in the progressive 24 fps format (24p), older movies on videotape, which have previously undergone the telecine process and contain the 3:2 conversion, are sometimes recorded on DVDs. If a DVD player or digital TV supports "cadence correction," it reverses any 3:2 cadences it finds back to full film frames before it applies any telecine processes. The 1080p or 2160p video output frame rate on the LG 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc™ Player with HDR Compatibility, Model # UP970 may be automatically set to either 24 Hz or 60 Hz depending both on the capability and preference of the connected TV and based on the native video frame rate of the content on the BD-ROM disc. There is no option for 50 Hz...^IFV

Will the UP970 play 50z discs? (I have some old BBC Region free Bluray programs). A lot of players can't handle 50hz discs. My Philips 7501 does, but I want a player with DolbyVision. Thanks in advance.
