What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The TV has exceeded our expectations in every way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Really happy with my tv. I wish it had a manual cause I'm sure it does more than I'm able to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture When our old 39" LCD TV failed, we looked at reviews on line and went to the stores to see the new TVs in person. There was no comparison to the picture on the OLED from other TVs. At home, after making a number of picture adjustments from recommendations on line we continue to be impressed. The sound is pretty good, too. The only negative is that there is some short bursts of hum when changing inputs, but it goes away if there is a signal present.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and clarity I bought this three weeks ago to replace my Panasonic plasma. The color and clarity with 4K OLED is very impressive. The screen is viewable from shallow angles. The close up detail is great. The controls are intuitive. I am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I would prefer a more informative manual not having a new tv for 15 years - otherwise no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning picture! I am so happy I chose to upgrade our viewing experience with this LG OLED. The picture is crystal clear, provides custom settings for background features and has a one-stop remote to surf content. Cheers for LG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful picture I wasn’t even looking to buy a new television when I saw this being offered at an exceptional price. I was so impressed with the quality of the picture, which was such a vast improvement from the one on my 10-year-old television, I decided that now would be a good time to invest in a new television. I am so glad I did. This television is amazing. Everyone who visits is so impressed with it. They rave on about how beautiful the picture is. The sound quality, while not being extraordinary, is quite satisfying. I do intend to buy a good sound bar to make this purchase even more pleasing.

OLED55BPUA Does Dolby Atmos require a dolby atmos soudbar? Will it work with a SK5Y soundbar and SPJ4 wireless rear speakers?

Asked by: Butch R
Dolby Atmos® enabled speakers are specially engineered to direct sound upward, where it reflects off the ceiling to produce an incredibly lifelike re-creation of overhead sound, so you will need a Dolby Atmos® enabled SoundBar that includes upward-firing speakers to connect to the LG B8PUA 4K HDR Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # OLED55B8PUA. Dolby developed a special algorithm that uses sound reflection to create 360 sound that allows you to support Dolby Atmos® through the TV's speakers...^IFV

Seriosly guys, it is mid June, when can we expect this TV? I have been putting off buying for several months. I can wait maybe one more, but when will this TV be in stores, if ever? I want to buy it, but will be forced to get something else soon.

HI DaveJohn12. We appreciate your understanding and patience while waiting for the LG B8PUA 4K HDR Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # OLED55B8PUA. The 'Where to Buy' button on its product information already shows that stores like Best Buy already have this in stock and B&H Photo are currently taking pre-orders and some online sites have it in stock or are awaiting new orders. What that would indicate is that the unit has already shipped and initial orders for it have been fulfilled according to when stores filled those orders and some may still be waiting on deliveries. Please use the 'Where to Buy' link to find out which stores in your area will be carrying this unit by inputting your zip code in the appropriate field. You may need to contact the stores that list their phone numbers with a "Call For Availability" status to find out when they expect delivery...^IFV

Looking at the front and back pictures of the B8 it appears you've used the incorrect picture for one. Is the picture of the back of the B8 actually the back of the C8? Or is the front picture incorrect?
