The TV is the heart of the home at Christmas – we gather round it to watch our favourite Christmas specials, play on our shiny new games consoles and show off our digital photos.

So, if you’re choosing a new one in time for the Queen’s Speech, you’ll definitely want to get it right.



In a nutshell: This premium OLED 4K TV delivers outstanding picture quality and audio



If you don’t mind splashing out, LG’s top of the range OLED 55BD in 55” or 65” is the set for you. And – in our opinion – it’s worth every penny.

Viewers get to enjoy stunning picture clarity with LG’s premium OLED screen. A combination of 4K resolution and Multi HDR brings the picture to life with incredible contrasts of tone and colour.

Fans of fast-paced sport, movies and action-packed games will be blown away by the smoothness of the OLED 55BD. Its screen responds 1000 times faster than a standard LED pixel set, eliminating blur to provide thrilling entertainment.

It supports a whole range of HD formats, too, including 4k Cinema HDR and Dolby Vision. So – whether you’re watching a movie, streaming content or 4K gaming you’ll always have the best view.

The OLED 55BD isn’t just about the picture quality – it sounds amazing too.

Better still, it comes with the next big thing in surround sound – Dolby Atmos. Atmos plays audio through upward-firing speakers, spreading sound around your room. You’ll hear the pitter patter of every raindrop and the crunch of grass beneath peoples’ feet.

Other highlights include:

  • Discover a vast range of movies, sport and shows thanks to Smart TV webOS. Just use the Magic Remote to find what you’d like to watch – and get the popcorn on.
  • With ThinQ AI, you can connect and control other smart appliances – and even talk directly to your TV with the voice-activated Magic Remote
  • Download your favourite streaming apps – like Amazon or Netflix – and save them as your favourites
  • Scroll back through shows you’ve missed with Freeview Play
  • Not all shows broadcast in 4K – but this TV’s upscaler boosts the quality of any show to as close to 4K as possible

Get the LG OLED 55BD in 55” or 65” if the space allows.
