SL8000 gets 5/5 from Techradar

September 30th, 2009 by LG Blog UKLG Blog UK
 
The new LG 42SL8000 gets the full thumbs-up from Techradar If there's one word that immediately sums up LG's 42SL8000, it's slim.

However if you own an LG TV with freesat HD built in (for example the LF7700) then you won't need to worry about the retune. Why is this retune necessary? Because Freeview is making technical preparations for the introduction of Freeview HD later this year, and to make Channel Five as widely available as the other terrestrial channels at the time of digital switchover.
