Get Smart

Enjoy a more lifelike picture with superior depth, sharpness, and remarkably accurate color. Originally developed for LG OLED TVs—the Best TV Ever—and now available on LG SUPER UHD TV with AI ThinQ®, the α7 Intelligent Processor enhances 4K HDR content for a truly cinematic experience.

Full Array Local Dimming for More Lifelike Picture

Full array local dimming results in better picture quality. This more precise local dimming control enhances the contrast and maintains deep black levels while reducing light bleed.

More Detail, More Color, More Everything

Nano Cell™ Display improves color accuracy with its expanded color gamut to deliver truer colors and deeper black levels at a wide viewing angle.

Greater Realism through More Colors

Discover a broader color palette that results in bluer skies, greener grass and so much more. Nano Cell™ Color Pro goes beyond conventional TVs by displaying a wider color spectrum, delivering a more lifelike picture with precise and vibrant colors.

Nanoparticles absorb surplus light wavelength and cut down on color bleed from RGB colors displayed on the screen. The result is that it presents pure and vivid colors.

All the Colors of Life

Bluer skies, greener grass, and the faint blush of a cheek: Nano Cell™ Display reveals more than a billion colors*, 64 times more detailed than conventional TV. This ability to display more shades results in superior color fidelity and more lifelike images.

*Billion Rich Colors is achieved through 10 bit dithering. Images Simulated.

Premium Content Choices

4K Cinema HDR on LG SUPER UHD TV with AI ThinQ® features comprehensive support of major high dynamic range formats including Dolby Vision™ from the cinema, as well as HDR10 and HLG, both with LG’s advanced tone-mapping technology that provides scene-by-scene optimization.

Trust the Color Experts

The same renowned Technicolor® technology that helps perfect premium Hollywood movies and TV shows can now be found in LG AI OLED TV with ThinQ®. The Technicolor Expert Mode optimizes the color performance, which allows for content to be displayed as intended by cinematographers.

A source of inspiration to Hollywood filmmakers

“It really will change my attitude as a filmmaker about what the final image will be for the viewers at home.” Listen to the director of Deadpool, Tim Miller and his opinions about LG OLED TV.

Enhanced HDR10 and HLG

Generic HDR 10 and HLG are rendered with LG's proprietary algorithm. All types of content are displayed with striking brightness from applying dynamic tone mapping on a frame by frame basis.

*Advanced HDR by Technicolor support via USB only. Dolby Vision is a trademark of Dolby Laboratories

Cinematic Sound at Home with Dolby Atmos®

A leap forward from surround sound, Dolby Atmos transports you with moving audio : crickets chirping all around, a monster roaring from behind, or a plane soaring overhead. Dolby Atmos content creates a more detailed sound experience that appears to come from everywhere for a wonderfully realistic, immersive experience.

*Dolby, Dolby Atmos and the double-D symbol are registered trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.

See the Picture, Not the TV.

A beautifully slender bezel accentuates the premium LG SUPER UHD screen along the four sides without distraction from the breathtaking picture.

I see the OLED tvs have a Dolby atomos decoder And the sk9000 has a DTS decoder instead      Why? I am going to buy for Dolby atmos  What is the difference if both have Dolby atmos sound Thank you Interested Ian

Asked by: Ian63
Hi Ian63. The Dolby Atmos decoder and the DTS decoder are not the same. You might be mistaking the DTS decoder for the DTS:X which along with the Dolby Atmos are the two newest surround sound formats that add overhead sound effects to deliver surround sound with greater realism that older formats. Atmos calls for at least one pair of “height” speakers. These can be ceiling speakers or upward-firing Atmos-enabled speakers. DTS:X works with a regular surround sound speaker system. To get the full effect you'll need content encoded with Atmos or DTS:X. which is why you need either a DTS:X decoder or Dolby Atmos decoder. The other two older formats that deliver surround sound for 5.1 channel systems are Dolby Digital which unlike earlier forms of surround sound, Dolby Digital 5.1-channel audio is a discrete multichannel surround sound system. With six discrete channels, sounds can be placed very precisely, for improved dialogue clarity, imaging, spaciousness, and realism. You also get a dedicated subwoofer channel, for plenty of deep bass. And the second is DTS which like Dolby Digital, provides 5.1 channels of digital audio. However, DTS uses less compression than Dolby Digital. As a result, some say that the sound produced by DTS is slightly more accurate than the sound produced by Dolby Digital. While most audio/video receivers will have both Dolby Digital and DTS, fewer discs and video games are encoded with DTS, compared to the number encoded with Dolby Digital. All our OLEDs and the top 4K HDR Smart LED Super UHD TV models like the SK9000PUA and SK9500PUA series TVs have both a Dolby Atmos decoder and a DTS Decoder (not a DTS:X decoder) in them. The difference between the OLEDs and the LED TVs is that OLEDs have a superior picture quality and design...^IFV

How does nano cell technology differ from quantum dots, Triluminos, etc.?

Asked by: Bilguana
The Nano Cell™ Color Pro Display technology featured in this LG SK9000PUA 4K HDR Smart LED AI SUPER UHD TV w/ ThinQ - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SK9000PUA and in our SUPER UHD TV lineup offers a technological advantage by employing uniformly-sized particles approximately one nanometer in diameter to create more subtle, accuaret colors that can be viewed from wider angles than other TVs. It is built on a breakthrough innovation called Quantum dot, which was first seen in TVs a few years ago. Quantum dot relies on billions of small dots or particles on a type of filter that is placed in a TV. Different TV makers call the Quantum dot technology by various names. LG's Nano Cell™ technology goes further by upgrading previous Quantum dot technologies. The nano particles absorb excess light wavelengths, so green will be green, and not "bleed" into blue which results in a much improved color accuracy. The other technologies are not LG technologies so you will need to contact the manufacturers of those thechnologies for an explanation...^IFV

LG Announced this would be available the week of March 12- Yet I cant find anywhere if it is released yet. Same with the C8 being released this week. Are they delayed?

Asked by: Thescream80
Your interest in the LG SK9000PUA 4K HDR Smart LED AI SUPER UHD TV w/ ThinQ - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SK9000PUA is greatly appreciated. There have been quite a few reports that have publicized that LG made announcements about the release dates for various TVs and have listed the dates. Regrettably, since LG has not put out an official announcement or press release for the release dates, we cannot confirm these dates. You will notice that on it's product page at http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-65SK9000PUA-4k-uhd-tv, when you click on the 'Where to Buy" button to find retailers and online sites who will be carrying these TVs, there is a disclaimer that says "Stores with product availability coming soon". What that means is that the units may have shipped, but stores are yet to recieve inventory and that as soon as they have those products in store, the list for retailers and online sites that will be carrying those products will be updated to show them.Thanks for you patience and understanding...^IFV
