4K Resolution

4K Resolution

ULTRA HD is a new standard in picture quality, and it's the future of high-end video display in the home. The resolution is four times that of Full HD 1080p*, with a whopping 8.3 million pixels to display flawless images, even when viewed up close. Enjoy incredibly vivid colors and picture details as never before.

Disclaimer: *4K/UHD content delivery standards still being developed.

IPS 4K Panel

IPS 4K Panel

LG’S IPS panel puts brilliance on display with a wider 4K viewing angle than Samsung 4K TV*s. One of the secrets behind LG TVs outstanding ULTRA high-definition performance is the specially designed TV panel. The quality of the panel helps determine the quality of the picture, and our IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel makes any seat the best in the house.

Tru-4K Engine

Tru-4K Engine

Enjoy the benefits of 4K resolution today. LG's Tru-4K HD Engine upscales the picture through a multi-step data analysis that enhances the details of broadcasts, movies, sports and videogames to near-4K quality, giving you the superior viewing experience you expect from an ULTRA HDTV.

HEVC Decoder

HEVC Decoder

The recently developed HEVC (short for High Efficiency Video Coding) compression format is essential to ULTRA HD/4K, enabling next-generation video playback to meet the demands of UHD TVs. 4K video uses HEVC, and so the built-in HEVC decoder on this LG ULTRA HD television makes it ready to display 4K content.

Premium 4K Resolution Content

Premium 4K Resolution Content

Looking for Ultra HD 4K Content? LG Smart TV's with Netflix now offer 4K resolution streaming video! Other streaming services have also begun to adopt 4K resolution with increased implementation expected in the years ahead. 4K source components—consumer video gear capable of outputting a true 3,840 x 2,160 signal—are now also on the market as well.

Disclaimer: *Internet connection & some subscriptions required and sold separately. Content and services vary by product and are subject to change without notice. **4K/UHD content delivery standards still being developed.

UCI 1080

UCI 1080

Specifically applied to LG Ultra HD televisions, our Ultra Clarity Index (UCI) is a rating that represents several key performance features and their ability to deliver the clearest possible picture. Inherently superior to current HD, UHD TVs with a UCI of 1080 offer a huge leap forward for clear, precise images even on demanding fast action such as sports and videogames.

Smart Share

Smart Share

LG gives you multiple ways to share those vacation photos, that family video or your favorite song on your TV, from a compatible device like a smartphone or tablet. Whether you link devices via your home network or send content directly from your laptop over WiDi, LG makes it easy for you to share what you like up on the big screen for friends and family to enjoy.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LG's have "The Picture'! I loved this 49" UHD TV the first time I saw it. I was blown away by the picture quality. It's incredibly clear and detailed, yet has a "softness" that is infinitely watchable! Clarity without a hint of harshness. The thin bezel was the second thing that attracted me to this TV. It seems to be a minor thing but the thin bezel adds dramatically to the viewing experience - all you see is screen. The 49" size fits perfectly in my living space, so this panel was a WIN-WIN-WIN for me. July 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by terrific value Great picture, intuitive operation, truly a "smart tv". July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing TV The picture quality is amazing. The TV is so easy to set up. This is a great TV, a great price. Would definitely buy another one. July 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great so far We have had this set for 4 months and so far it has been great August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product - Outstanding Picture - No Bluetooth I find that since I got my UB8200 series Ultra 4k LG set I thoroughly enjoy my viewing experiences. The only thing missing is a bluetooth capability but for the price it is an outstanding value. Life if Good with the UB8200 and FOOTBALL is back finally. LG. August 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super TV--best I ever owned. Has exquisite color, sharp, clear, big...love it. I bought it a few months ago. I thought it was a great value compared to the other brands on display. I have owned LG products before and have been happy with them. This TV greatly enhances my viewing pleasure. I like sports and news in particular...great for sports viewing. No regrets with this TV. August 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING I PURCHASED THIS TV FOR MY MOTHER AND SHE ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT. THE SET UP WAS A BREEZE, THE FEATURE ARE BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS, THE PICTURE IS SO CLEAR YOU CAN COUNT THE FRECKLES ON A PERSONS FACE,THE SOUND IS EXCELLENT, THE DIFFERENT ENTERTAINMENT FEATURES ARE OUTSTANDING. I GIVE THIS TV TWO THUMBS UP. August 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by laggy We find this TV to be a bit laggy. It has all of these features (tons in fact) and in order to optimize the performance of the TV they ALL need to be shut off. What is there purpose if they need to be shut off? When the lag is not occurring the quality and color are beautiful. Maybe the technology just isn't all the way there yet but it's getting there.

Answer: 
I also connected to my computer using just the remote and the TV. It was pretty easy and I did not have to read the manual or look for help online. The only thing you really need is to know your wireless password if you have a password enabled, and you really should to prevent neighbors from using up all your bandwith.

Removing startup media guide

I just purchased the 49UB8200 TV. Every time I turn the tv on I get a "welcome the Media Guide" start up screen that asks me to select standard or HD TV. It take 5 minutes for this screen to go away and the TV doesn't respond to my selection so I have to wait the guide to go away. Any way that I can remove this guide at start up. It's pretty annoying.

Answer: 
Try using the "backup button" when you get that screen. I'm a few miles away from my TV remote but I believe it's the one with a circle/arrow that goes counterclockwise.... it usually gets me out of trouble..

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. A Welcome to the Media Guide does not seem to be a feature of the television itself, which would explain why the TV controller cannot produce any effect on this feature. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to further troubleshoot this matter.

Answer: 
Both of the devices must be HDMI 2.0 compatible. HDMI cables that worked with HDMI 1.4 should work fine with HDMI 2.0. Be sure the video card (or on-board video controller) in your PC has HDMI 2.0 capability. Upon cursory research I was unable to determine whether the HDMI ports on this television were 1.4 or 2.0.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. While there is a hardware enhancement that allows this TV to utilize a 4K resolution at 60Hz, the source signal will also have to be compatible with this functionality, and the cable must also be capable of transmitting this much data.

It seems from the information on the LG website that 8000 and 8200 series 4K TV's do not have web OS . 8500 series TV and higher numbered TV have the web OS feature listed in the description. Also will like to know if not having web os means just a different interphase to access smart tv features or more than that ?

Answer: 
All I can tell you is we can get onto the internet via our wireless router using the "Internet" feature on the SmartTV screen, and currently have Weather Underground and the Open Sea Webcam at Monterey Bay as bookmarks, which we view on a regular basis. We've even watched Youtube videos using the Internet access. We use the standard remote that comes with the TV, but it is a laborious task to move that cursor around the screen and use the popup keyboard for typing in webpages. Maybe the fancier remote offered by LG would help that process. Hope this helps.
