TORONTO, April 15, 2016 – LG Electronics (LG) is excited to announce their newest line of SUPER UHD TVs are now in Canada. These TVs will be available in 3 model types: UH9500 series (86″ and 65″), UH8500 series (75″, 65″, 60″ and 55″) and UH7700 series (65″, 60″ and 55″); delivering a dynamic viewing experience from any angle with over a billion colours, smoother motion, elevated brightness and smarter technology that is easy to use.
“LG’s SUPER UHD TV goes above and beyond standard 4K picture quality and is completely new to the home entertainment landscape in Canada,” said Abraham Cherian, Home Electronics Senior Brand Manager, LG Electronics Canada. “The fact that we’ve incorporated several unique technologies into our SUPER UHD TVs, means that Canadians can bring the theatre experience right to their homes.”
