What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best picture Ever I love this tv. It was pretty much plug and play but it has so many features that it has and its not easy to figure out how to use them. I admit I'm not good at reading manuels but this tv is out of my league. My last Tv was a plasma but it was starting to go and I wanted a smart tv. Great price and good warranty

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality not great I have had my 55SJ8000 for a year and it has been good. Good picture quality. Really good color too. The only issue is with the HDR and my XBox one X it seems to lose signal afterwards. Not always, but the only way to fix it is to turn off the TV and turn it back on. So really not that big of a deal, bit something I shouldn't have to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Free Tv channels with the CH 100+ Went to ABC Warehouse and got a great deal. The manager was not aware that LG brand has the CH 100 + channels, I even help him with getting a customer to search only for LG because she too thinks cable rates are outrageous. That 65 inch 4 K is so awesome. Fire stick and wall outlets made it such a clean look on the wall. Couple of my friends are now looking at LG because of the CH +, and the remote control cursor being controlled by hand motion had him hooked. I love my new tv, getting a 50 inch for the pole barn next.

Picture from TV channels fills screen horizontally but not vertically. There is about a 4” gap at top and bottom of screen. This does not occur with most movies they fill full screen   Need to know how to fix this.

Hi; How is the back light provided in this TV? Is it a full array back light system (direct LED lighting) or edge lighting? and what about the model UJ752? Thanks in advance for your consideration

Does this tv have Dolby atmos support or passthrough? For example can I send atmos from Netflix to my atmos receiver via arc? I'd assume it does because you sell atmos soundboard.

Asked by: Zerograv
The LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SJ8000 does not have a built-in Dolby Atmos Decoder nor does it support Dolby Atmos Passthrough.
