LG brings 4K Ultra HD OLED TV to New Zealand
LG New Zealand is bringing its 4K Ultra HD OLED TV (EG960T) to New Zealand, making it available in selected stores around the country. The company used its know how to put together 4K Ultra HD and OLED technologies into a large screen TV with stunning result.

The screen of the EG960T offers perfect black and vivid colours, matched by an enhanced user experience and elegant form factor. The EG960T series also comes with features and innovations including the newly improved Smart TV operating system, webOS 2.0 all packaged in one slim unit.

The new LG webOS 2.0 Smart TV platform is an upgraded version of the company’s original webOS user interface. In comparison to its predecessor, the refreshed operating system gives users faster and simpler access to the features and apps available on the platform.

Kieran Chapman, Trade Marketing Manager for LG New Zealand, said “We’ve seen a rapid increase in OLED sales on earlier models in 2015, and we expect this trend to continue. Today, we’re thrilled that we can offer Kiwis a TV that combines OLED with another great LG technology, 4K Ultra HD. It really is the best of both worlds – and by melding the two, you get what we believe is the most advanced TV technology available, and one that truly delivers the ultimate TV viewing experience.”

“If you’re looking to upgrade your TV, now is the time. We are extremely confident that the LG 4K Ultra HD OLED TV will impress anyone watching TV, movies or playing video games – and now that we have Netflix in New Zealand, television and movie buffs have a good excuse to watch 4K content on a screen that will really do it justice,” he added.

OLED's innovative technology means each sub-pixel is self-lighting. What makes LG OLED TV technology unique is the addition of a ‘white’ sub‐pixel. This creates a four colour pixel - consisting of white,
red, green and blue sub‐pixels (WRGB), providing perfect black, vivid colours and brilliant whites with infinite contrast.

While availability will be initially limited, it is expected that the rollout will expand into more stores towards the end of the year. The LG 65" 65EG960T is available for RRP $11,999, while the 55 inch model (55EG960T) will sell for RRP $7,999.
