From this month Freeview Play is available on certain LG TVs¹, increasing the choice of Freeview Play enabled sets. LG will be joining the likes of Panasonic, Humax and JVC that already have Freeview Play built into product ranges.
To access the Freeview Play scroll-back guide on these TVs you will need a software update – click here for more instructions.
What is Freeview Play?
Simply put, it’s live TV and on demand, all in one place. Watch catch up by scrolling back through your TV guide and access programmes you missed from the last seven days, on demand. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All 4, Demand 5 and UKTV Play sitting alongside over 70 digital channels and 15 HD channels. Simply make sure your TV or recorder is connected to the internet and you’re good to go. And as ever with Freeview, there’s no monthly fee.
Mid-range LG TVs
Our first entrant for LG’s mid-range Televisions, and it still boasts 4K HD capabilities at almost half the price of its OLED successors. It doesn’t pack the same weighty punch the OLED models do when it comes to sound, but for a 4K Smart TV it’s a solid contender.
Almost identical to the model above, but with 3D Colour Mapping: colour transitions are cleaner, especially when transitioning from dark to light colours.
Despite coming in 10″ smaller, enhanced 3D integration allows for a fully immersive environment- connect a 3D blu-ray player and enjoy. And of course it carries a 4K HD picture as well.
Best value LG TVs
An HD display featuring ColourPrime Pro technology delivers a picture of vibrant colours. The perfect canvas for your entertainment, as a unique upscaling process and Smart 4K TV, ensure all your viewing is always in incredible detail.
Ushering in a new era in picture realism, the HDR-equipped LG 49UH661V makes TV more immersive than ever.
This LG model is ten times cheaper than the flagship model we outlined above. However, it still offers a 4K resolution alongside HDR processing, a Smart Web operating system and the ability to record onto a USB stick (EU only).
