TV of the Year 2018

Awards Winner
The C8 isn’t a game-changer if that’s what you were hoping for. It’s a step in the right direction though and improves on key aspects of its predecessor. That’s a whole lot of TV going by what we’ve seen from LG in the past. It really is all the TV you need, rubbing shoulders with the best in the business and occasionally outshining some rivals. It won’t steal your life’s savings either and combined with a capable sound system, this is all the binge-watching fodder you should care for.

The runners-up

Samsung QE65Q9FN

If you want a telly that looks good regardless of it being on or off, the Q9F fits the bill. Bezel-less design, no-gap wall mount and cable management mean it’s more of a piece of art.

Sony KD-65X9000F

Not everyone’s wallet is cut out for the big, OLED life just yet. Sony’s excellent LED panel with support for 4K and Dolby Vision HDR proves that cheaper doesn’t always mean lesser.
