  • 55UB8200

Key Features

  • 4K Resolution
  • IPS 4K Panel
  • Tru-4K Engine
  • HEVC Decoder
AVAILABLE SIZES:
4K Resolution - Video

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.

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.

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

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Picture I stumbled into a great deal on this TV at Sam's Club and having a 9 year old Plasma TV thought this would be a good time to replace it. This TV is a high quality product with tons of settings and adjustments that can be provide to adjust picture settings to your satisfaction. I run all my sound through a surround sound receiver and system so I don't use the TV sound but the TV itself sounds decent for general use. I do wish there was more information provided addressing picture adjustments as I had to fiddle around quite a bit to arrive with final adjustments that were to my liking. With that done, I now have several adjusted picture scenarios that work well for me and am quite happy with the picture. I rated only 4 stars instead of 5 simply due to my being so used to a quality Plasma TV and the abundance of contrast adjustment, deep black levels available and high quality picture provided as opposed to many LED and LCD TV's. I have to say that this LG 4K TV does a very good job with black levels, color accuracy and provides an excellent high quality picture after adjustments are completed. Needless to say I'll certainly be in line for a OLED TV once prices are more reasonable but this LG UHD 4K certainly fills the bill for me for now and really does provide an enjoyable, pleasing picture and product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME This is my first flat screen and I can't say enough good about it. The only downside that I have found, if one can say, is the sound is not that good. Your not paying for the sound only the picture and features and they are awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart TV is my first Got great value. Dual purpose, great sound and commercial modes. AV sync offset = nice. Extra options and downloadable app content unlimited and fun. No degrade on powersave modes that usually make colors bad. youtube is super awesome especially using extra device picture is there when browsing the web, but really its about the screencast. WIth smartphone as remote and all, UHD and open API, the picture and sound was better than expected, the bandwidth saved streaming in certain apps (h.265) is also quite a plus. Owned for 4 months, much left I haven't touched.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smart Feature Very Dumb I've had an LG high definition television before and was very satisfied with it. So when I decided to upgrade to a Smart TV I chose LG again. I was not familiar with the new 4UHD technology but since the price was right bought it. I'm really disappointed as it relates to the Smart feature for this television. When I first attempted to access the apps I encountered problems. I really didn't think it was a big deal, it's a new TV maybe it has to calibrate, identify and get to know my wifi network. I gave it a few weeks. When I tried again, same problem unable to access the apps. Geek Squad suggested that it was my wifi connection. Of course I contacted my internet provider, and I went through a lot of troubleshooting applications like, renaming my network, rebooting the router and finally identifying the television's IP address. I even purchased a wifi extender. What more can be done. The apps are still not working properly. For instance, I installed the iheart radio app. When the next time I tried to access this app another time, I was taken to the installation screen. I don't know what to do at this point, and it's so frustrating because I have this item that is not working to my satisfaction. What is a magic remote, anyway?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from slow software best 60" 4k given the price and quality. color is good, speakers are decent for being in the TV. I love that there is audio normalization built in that makes quiet sounds louder and loud sounds quieter. My biggest complaint is that the smart interface where you access Netflix, Hulu, etc. is VERY SLOW! Once the movie/show starts, it's fine but going through the menus hurts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV I have ever owned I spent months researching 4KUHD TV's and decided to go with LG. I do not regret my decision .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Absolutely love it. A smart purchase. No regrets. A lot of features for the price. Perfect size for rooms that are not big, it has a large viewing screen without being overwhelming for the space. Great picture and sound.

Hi, I've just bought a lg 49in uhd 4k smart tv. What is the best tilt and turn wall bracket to get please

Asked by: Antonio1970
The LG 49" Class (48.5" Diagonal) UHD 4K Smart LED TV, Model # 49UB8200 (your model number may differ from this US model since model numbers in the UK are different from those in the US) is a VESA Compliant TV that has an A x B VESA Wall Mount Pattern of 400 x 400 (mm) so any VESA Compliant Full Motion (which is what the wall mounts that tilt & turn are referred to as) can be used. There are numerous brands of this type of wall mount and different retailers will carry different types. You may want to either research online to see which ones would suite your needs or you can visit any stores in the UK to see what they have available or consult Sales Associates at Audio Video Stores as to which would be best for you based on your needs. Regrettably, model numbers in the US and availability may vary considerably to what is available in the UK. Your local LG Support Center in the UK may be able to suggest something for you as they would be more familiar with what is available in the UK...^IFV
