LG's 2015 TVs: Everything You Need To Know

Thinking of picking up a new telly? We've got all the pricing, release dates, specs and features of LG's entire 2015 TV line-up all in one place.

What's New This Year?

Netflix: 4K Out Of The Box

Almost all of LG's 2015 TVs — from the $899 LF6300 onwards and upwards — support Netflix, straight out of the box. Any WebOS or WebOS 2.0 telly will be able to access the video streaming service du jour via either Wi-Fi or wired networking, and it'll be a Smart TV app rather than any kind of hacky workaround. Because of that, you can expect native 4K video streaming delivered to your TV, as long as you're trying on an Ultra HD TV and as long as your 'net is fast enough.

WebOS 2.0: Faster, Cleaner, More Customisable

WebOS is a great Smart TV interface, and it's become slightly better in its most modern iteration. WebOS 2.0 starts up faster, but doesn't change too significantly from the original apart from in the way that it lets you tag channels or inputs as favourites to more easily access them. The Input Picker in the top right corner, for example, is a quick go-to that lets you change sources without the complicated multi-click approach of the old NetCast and first WebOS TVs.

ColourPrime: Wider Colour Gamuts

LG's ColourPrime tech is the equivalent of Samsung's SUHD or Sony's TRILUMINOS — it's a different phosphor coating for the LEDs that provide the backlight behind the LCD panel, giving a significantly wider colour gamut compared to a traditional LED. The result is a tech that genuinely does result in better colours that are more vibrant and brighter — I've seen it compared and the difference is substantial. It's only on LG's PRIME 4K TV, though, the UF950T.

Here's The Entire 2015 LG TV Line-Up

Here's your go-to cheat sheet on the specs of every LG TV announced so far for the next year. That list might change as some future top-of-the-line models are announced, but for now it's your best go-to. If you want a specific break-down and the pricing for each model, read on for all the details.

OLED TV: One To Rule Them All

Sitting in a category of its own is LG's only OLED TV for 2015, the EC930T carried over from 2014. It's a curved, OLED, wide colour gamut Full HD TV running WebOS through a dual-core CPU. It has built-in Wi-Fi, Wi-Di and Miracast, a single FreeviewPlus tuner and can access Netflix. You'll pay $3999 for the 55EC930T, which is out now.

Ultra HD TVs: From Big To Small

Ultra HD, or 4K, TVs make up a full two thirds of LG's 2015 TV line-up. There's 19 in total, ranging from 43 to 98 inches and with varying levels of quality and integrated features. Here's a hint — look at the first two number of the TV's model number to find its screen size, while everything after that denotes where it sits in LG's entire range.

The bottom of the range starts with the UF770T, out in late April. The UF770T is a flat, edge-lit, local dimming Ultra HD LED LCD running WebOS 2.0 through a quad-core CPU. It has built-in Wi-Fi, Wi-Di and Miracast, a single FreeviewPlus TV tuner, and can access Netflix. The larger four are 200Hz, the smaller three are 100Hz.

There's another UB980T, with a full backlight and sliding built-in Harman/Kardon soundbar on the 98-inch model.

One third of LG's 2015 TV line-up is cheaper, entry-level Full HD 1080p TVs. There's a total of 9 screens available, ranging from 32 to 65 inches and with a small variance in the built-in features they offer.
