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.

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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfied Customer I bought this tv 3 weeks ago after researching the pros/cons of LED vs. OLED. I decided against OLED due to screen burn potential. At this time I am very pleased with this tv. It probably deserves a "5" rating, but I was disappointed and frustrated with the initial set up process. There is no user guide, just basic on-screen start up procedures that were easy to follow; however, once I finished, the picture was not very sharp and I had difficulty finding the adjustment settings. After doing internet search and several hours clicking on various tv settings, I finally located the picture controls and was able to adjust the sharpness to a crisp look. This is the only negative comment I have about this tv. The "magic" remote is fantastic and the apps load very quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not made with quality parts or consumer in mind I bought this tv a couple weeks ago but am not happy with it. The picture quality is good but the material quality and engineering is real poor. For the kind of money your spending on this it’s not worth it the screen is made like junk and literally will break w two fingers putting it into place. I should know I tried two of them before I gave up and went with a better brand. So if your never going to touch it or add components to it in all the years you own it then go ahead and get one but if you are I would pass on this. Really dissatisfied with lg and their plaining on this tv I had higher hopes but in the end it was a big let down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like it. Had it for a month now. Getting used to all the settings. Looks complicated at first with very little for instructions. The settings and then additional settings allows you to set just about everything once you know where to go. We love it. If you have hearing aids, you may want a separate sound bar. We found one that does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and feature rich! This is an all around excellent TV. It makes any content BEAUTIFUL! From a lousy over the air signal to 4K HDR BlueRay, the screen preforms wonderfully. The OS is super user friendly with plenty of apps to choose from. It also handles gaming with almost no imput lag, and I mean, YOU WONT NOTICE ANY IMPUT LAG! From the amount of USB,/HDMI inputs to the remote to the super thin bezel to how good it looks even when it's off this TV is AWESOME!!!! BUT.... Is it perfect? Well, no.... It isn't.... This panel has ONE issue, and it must be mentioned. While this TV is indeed a FALD panel, it does a poor job of preventing blooming in dark rooms. It is noticable. I have adjusted the TV'S parameters to reduce the effect somewhat, but it is still there when it is dark. When the room is well lit, I don't notice it at all. Is it a deal breaker? For me? Absolutely not, I knew I was not buying an OLED panel, or paying OLED panel prices, but just be aware that this TV may not be the BEST option for a dark room. Maybe this issue can be delt with in a software update? Having said that, I highly doubt that you can find an LCD panel with this many features and such an AMAZING picture for the price, PERIOD. This is my second LG flat screen, and for good reason, LG has the best features, screens, and build quality, for a price that is always under what the competition demands. Seriously, pick up this TV and a PS4 pro and be happy.

How far should you be sitting from the TV

Asked by: Lorraine Kathryn
Hello Lorraine Kathryn. The Guidelines from the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers recommends sitting at a distance where the screen fills up about 30° of your field of vision as a minimum for a good experience. So for the LG SK9000PUA 4K HDR Smart LED SUPER UHD TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SK9000PUA or any 65" TV, that would be a distance of about 8.9' (2.69 m). However, if you use the TV mostly for watching movies, you might benefit from sitting a bit closer to get a more theater-like and the SMPTE "reference" position for movie theaters and the THX recommendation is about 40°. That means a distance of 6.5' (1.98 m) for a 65" screen...^IFV

Hi, I'd like to know more about the Dolby Atmos decoding. Does the TV act as a receiver, and if so, can we send uncompressed audio from the tv to a receiver out to a home theater system? Furthermore, does the decoding software in the TV offer 7.1 as well?

Asked by: nattybrad
Hi nattybrad. Dolby developed and certified a special algorithm that uses sound reflection to create 360 sound so that the TV speakers on the LG SK9000PUA 4K HDR Smart LED SUPER UHD TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SK9000PUA can support Dolby Atmos® without up firing speakers. The TV also supports Dolby Atmos® passthrough. That means that you source signal must also have the Dolby Atmos® data which is then passed through the TV to a Sound Bar or receiver that can decode Dolby Atmos®. The bare minimum for Dolby Atmos is a 5.1.2 system. This means you have five speakers around the room, one subwoofer, and two height speakers. If you currently have a 7.1 system, you can just take two of those surround speakers and mount them to the ceiling...^IFV

Is this a 10bit panel or?

Asked by: PattyJ
I think 2018 LG Super UHD TVs are 8bit with dithering so they are not pure 10 bit panels.

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: Pastor63
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
