What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Blu-ray but... Picture and playback has has been excellent. I am disappointed there is no way to download new apps to the menu. We recently got subscriptions to Amazon Prime and Hulu and now can’t watch on our LG OLED with the surround sound that is connected to the Blu-ray player. Not cool LG

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Video BUT Why does this device have internet streaming? only provides 2 apps,no way to download more, or update. Sound output really isn't all that, Is it really up scaling? This is LGs top of the line item, Did LG sell its name over a top end item? It seems LG is selling this item to people that dont understand why they are getting. I returned mine to the store today.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Dolby Vision Output No Dolby Vision outputted to my LG SuperUHD and OLED TVs. This is very disappointing and have to rely on lower bitstream Apple 4K TV and native Netflix App to get Dolby Vision. Physical discs (especially those labeled with Dolby Vision) still should be the best source of video output.

I have an IR extender that I need to use and I can't figure out where to place the "eye" to gain control. Where is the IR window located?

Asked by: Squire
On the front face of the UP970 to the right of the manual control buttons is a rectangular dark red glass. That is where the IR sensor is. ^AC

Hello, I just bought the UP 970. The product website states no Dolby Atmos, but I read here at the q&a that it does support Atmos. Is the product site incorrect or the q&a? I ordered another brand that does have Atmos, which I would return as I prefer LG
