WHY YOU NEED AN ULTRA HD 4K TV THIS SUMMER

July 24th, 2014 by LG Blog UK
 
Ah the great British summer… The smell of suncream, heatwaves and downpours, the sight of normally calm people becoming human windmills at the first sign of a wasp and, most importantly, where a nation’s sporting hopes and dreams swing from oblivion to reality in a few brief moments. We’re already halfway through the summer. Wimbledon has been and gone, the World Cup is packing up and heading for Russia, and the Tour de France is already underway – but there’s still a lot left to watch, and there is no better way to watch sport than on an ULTRA HD...

WHY HIGH-RESOLUTION MUSIC IS AWESOME!

July 21st, 2014 by LG Blog UK
 
Stop kidding yourself that your MP3-based music is good enough. It’s not. It’s fragmented and lightweight. It’s like spending half the film in the loo, only eating the bread of the sandwich, only reading every other page of the book. Andrew Everard explains just what high-res audio is and why we are all missing out… Imagine everything in your life was made at the beginning of the 1980s, but still on sale today: you’d be talking on a mobile phone weighing the better part of a kilo and good for just an hour of use between charges; discovering computing with a...

THE SIX BEST FILMS TO WATCH ON YOUR SMARTPHONE

July 19th, 2014 by LG Blog UK
 
We’ve all taken to watching more films and TV shows on our smartphones. No one’s going to argue that you’re getting a better viewing experience on a phone than in an IMAX cinema – and you’d be a mug to watch Gravity on a 5.5in screen – but some films lend themselves to the small screen – because of either cinematography, sound or even their narrative structure. Stuff‘s Stephen Graves picks six… Cloverfield A giant monster terrorises New York, King Kong-style – but where previous monster movies gave us a birds-eye view of the action, director Matt Reeves places us on the...

GET THE BEST PICTURE FROM YOUR TV: HOW TO CALIBRATE

July 9th, 2014 by LG Blog UK
 
When you first set up a new TV, you might’ve noticed that it asks you if you’re using it at home, or in a shop. You choose ‘home’, of course. Unless you live in Dixons. If you do live in Dixons, and you choose the ‘shop’ setting, you’ll be met with a hyper-caffeinated picture. The brightness and contrast will be whacked all the way up, the colour will be overblown and all the motion modes will probably turned up to 11. The reason? To attract attention among all the other televisions while punters are browsing. The default ‘home’ settings are...

Why I love… – PULP FICTION

June 28th, 2014 by LG Blog UK
 
My film knowledge isn’t that vast or diverse. I know what I like, and I know what I don’t. I know I like Quentin Tarantino movies. Pulp Fiction was the first of his films I saw. I’ve now seen them all, but this is my favourite. At some point in my mid-teens I saw a DVD of the film in my local video store. The cover had Tarantino favourite Uma Thurman on a bed, smoking a cigarette. I thought: “I have to see that film.” I’ve got quite strict parents, so I had to wait some time before I was...
