LG SK9000

I work from home majority of the time and most of my time is spent working from the couch. I’m so excited to share with you guys my newest addition to my home, the 65-inch LG SUPER UHD SK9000 TV. This is no ordinary TV, it’s beautifully designed and it’s super smart.

By super smart, I mean the TV has it’s own AI (artificial intelligence) and I can control it by my voice. Read on for all the details on this LG SUPER UHD TV!




Let’s talk about how vibrant and crisp the colors are on the LG SUPER UHD SK9000 TV. From the first time I turned on the TV – wow, the colors were so vibrant and watching movies at night, it just gets even better. Here are the tech specs:

  • 4K Cinema HDR – LG SUPER UHD TV features support of major high dynamic range formats like Dolby Vision™ HDR from the cinema, as well as HDR10 and HLG, both with LG’s advanced tone-mapping technology that provides scene-by-scene optimization
  • α7 (Alpha7) Intelligent Processor – the α7 Intelligent Processor provides a more lifelike picture with superior depth, sharpness, and remarkably accurate color. Previously available only on LG OLED TV, α7 is now inside LG SUPER UHD TVs with AI ThinQ, enhancing 4K HDR content for a truly cinematic experience.
  • Nano Cell™ Display – the expanded color gamut delivers truer colors, absorbs unwanted light, and reduces reflectivity to assure deeper black levels, even at a wide viewing angle.
  • Ultra Luminance Pro – uses smart power distribution technology to boost peak brightness even higher. This increases the overall contrast ratio to give movies and TV shows a bold appearance not previously possible.




How cool is it that I can control my TV with my voice by speaking into the integrated microphone on the remote control?! My favorite voice controls are:

  • seeing events on my calendar
  • checking on traffic before I leave the house
  • checking the weather
  • playing music from Spotify
  • pulling up photos from my Google drive
  • shows on Netflix!


SUPER UHD TV with AI ThinQ® can perform hundreds of voice commands utilizing the company’s own open smart platform and built-in Google Assistant. This means I can control compatible smart home devices by using my voice. It also works with Amazon Alexa devices. With LG’s proprietary ThinQ, I can also set up external gaming consoles and sound bars, and turn the TV off at set times. I can’t wait to set up everything at home like the lights and room temperature!

*Service limited to certain languages. Some features require 3rd party service subscription. Google Home and Amazon Alexa devices sold separately.

Watching movies and shows at home are now the ultimate cinema experience with the 64.5″ screen and Dolby Atmos!

  • Dolby Atmos – Dolby Atmos content creates a more detailed sound experience that appears to come from everywhere for a wonderfully realistic, immersive experience that puts you inside the movie/show.
  • 2160p resolution for breathtaking HD images – you can watch 4K movies and TV shows at 4x the resolution of Full HD.
  • Advanced TV sound – this LG SUPER UHD TV comes with four 10W speakers, two 10W woofers, and Dolby Atmos.
