Comfortable 3D Glasses

Enjoy 3D wearing the most comfortable 3D glasses. CINEMA 3D glasses are light, flicker-free, battery-free, hassle-free and economical, allowing for greater viewing comfort and convenience

Flicker-Free 3D

Enjoy a 3D TV that is more comfortable for your eyes, without the distracting flicker. Unlike conventional 3D TV, LG CINEMA 3D Smart TV is certified flicker-free and also provides brighter 3D images. It’s easier on the eyes, delivering clear and crisp 3D that jumps out of the screen.


We all know the best way to enjoy a movie is at the cinema, with its expansive & absorbing screen that has no frame, no obstruction… Now, there’s a TV that brings the same, cinematic viewing experience to your home, designed with pure inspiration and cutting-edge technology. It is time for design to come home.

Tag On

Sharing between your mobile device and your television has never been simpler with Tag On, a feature that allows mutual content sharing and mirroring by simply "tagging" the smartphone to an NFC sticker provided with the TV.


WiFi Alliance certified Miracast™ allows you to enjoy easy and fast connection among TV, Smart phones, and Tablets without wires, enabling easy transfer and sharing of your digital contents right on the TV screen.

MHL (Mobile HD Link)

Connect and watch HD content from your phone on the TV’s large screen with your MHL cable and control it with the TV's Magic Remote. The phone is also charged while it is connected.

Premium Content

The Premium Content card selects and categorizes the most popular and useful content in your country, provided via partnership with the best content providers. Enjoy the best entertainment whenever you want.* *Services are subject to availability and may vary across products and platforms. LG Electronics UK works closely with content providers to ensure services are live and up to date across its range of Smart TV devices. Due to platform upgrades some services require modification before launching on 2013 devices.

3D World

LG’s 3D WORLD Card provides you with endlessly expanding 3D content, including movies, sports, music videos, educational clips, and more!

Game World

LG Smart TV's Game World brings tremendous amount of fun with many games to download and enjoy. Within it await unlimited possibilities for gaming entertainment thanks to LG's patented Magic Remote, which is much like a console controller. Welcome to the groundbreaking union of TV and game console!
