John Lewis introduces large screen Smart TVs, powered by LG

In Product News On

John Lewis has announced the launch of its first-ever range of John Lewis Smart TVs, which have been created in collaboration with LG Electronics (LG).

Available online since April 30 and in store since May 5, the John Lewis TVs (JL9000) come in three large screen sizes (49, 55 and 60-inches). A 50 watt, 2.1 channel soundbar is integrated into the stand design.

John Lewis Vision Buyer John Kempner commented: “There is a continuing trend in customer demand for larger screen sizes with sales of 49-inch and larger accounting for over 25% of John Lewis TV sales.  We wanted to create our own range of premium large screen TVs that would have a distinctive look and also offer the benefits of the very latest in on-demand Smart TV technology, while being easy to use.   LG has helped us achieve this with a sleek and clever design that also includes a built-in soundbar to deliver an immersive sound and visual experience.”

LG commercial director – consumer electronics (UK & Ireland) Andrew Mackay added: “The development of the JL9000 TV series illustrates the strategic partnership between John Lewis and LG – and as the first John Lewis-branded Smart TV, it is a premium development combining stylish design and smart technology.”

 The new John Lewis TVs feature the LG webOS Smart TV platform, which aims to provide an integrated Smart TV solution that works with terrestrial TV to bring the world of entertainment neatly together. The platform allows access to catch-up TV, movies, sport and music services.

The televisions also feature the ‘Launcher’ which allows quick access to apps, connected devices and recently used programmes or services. The programme guide offers live and on demand TV shows, including rentals, games and a recommendation service. The TVs also boast an A+ energy efficiency rating and come with a 5 year guarantee.
