LG has unveiled the pricing and release plans for some of its 2019 OLED TV lineup, basically mirroring the company’s playbook from last year. These are some of the very best TVs you can buy, so LG is continuing to price them as such.
The 2019 C9 (65-inch, 55-inch) and E9 (65-inch) series TVs will start shipping in April. The 77-inch model of the C9 and 55-inch E9 will hit stores a bit later in May and June, respectively. And this year’s update to LG’s “wallpaper” TVs — to be available in 65- and 75-inch sizes — will come out in June.
(If you were wondering, no, there’s still not at a firm price or release date for the stunning rollable TV.)
LG’s TV branding can be pretty confusing, but all of these TVs fundamentally share the same display quality and the latest features that the company first announced at CES: that includes AirPlay 2, built-in support for Amazon Alexa voice commands, improved image processing, and more. LG claims itself as the only major TV manufacturer offering both Alexa and Google Assistant out of the box, whereas some other brands (Samsung, Roku TVs, etc.) only support them through external speakers you might already own.
The TVs also feature HDMI 2.1, future-proofing them for any content (and just about any frame rate) that might be coming down the pipe over the next several years.
But they differ in what’s around the screen; the E9 series has glass on all four sides, most noticeably at the bottom. The C9 doesn’t get quite that fancy. And the W9 (wallpaper) series puts the same display into a design that’s almost unfathomably thin.
LG has said only its 2019 TVs will gain AirPlay 2 and HomeKit functionality; other TV makers including Samsung and Vizio are also adding the useful feature to their older sets. It’d be nice if the company would reconsider this, but I’m not holding out hope.
Below are the prices and release months for the C9, E9, and W9 LG OLED ThinQ TVs. I’d advise against buying them soon after launch, as LG’s OLEDs tend to see big markdowns near the end of the year.
LG C9 OLED 4K TVs:
77-inch: $6,999 (May)
65-inch: $3,499 (April)
55-inch: $2,499 (April)
LG E9 OLED 4K TVs:
65-inch: $4,299 (April)
55-inch: $3,299 (June)
LG W9 Wallpaper OLED 4K TVs:
77-inch: $12,999 (June)
65-inch: $6,999 (June)

I've tried to find the answer online but can't seem to find it.
Just got my LG 65SM8200PLA tv and updated it once to version 3.60. This was easy and worked but it won't update to any versions newer than this. I read some people have firmware version 4.00 / 5.00. My TV says its the 2019 model...
I've had Amazon Prime working fine on my LG TV. But recently found that the app does not start up. It stays on the starting logo screen and does nothing else. Sometimes the image stutters and looks like the app is trying to restart itself but with no luck. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it. from what I can see the app has not updated recently so don't really know what has changed. This issue has now also started to happen on one of my other LG tv's in the house.
Has Anyone else has a similar issue?
Yo! We heard you like open sourced webOS so
link hidden, please login to view the open source of webOS! Ok, so that’s not entirely accurate since
link hidden, please login to view from HP after link hidden, please login to view…well…bits and pieces of it back in 2012. So no, you’re not stuck in a Doctor Strange time loop.
webOS has been open sourced before but not by LG. This news comes as a shock to the current legacy webOS community still rocking Pre 3s and waiting for LuneOS to reach “driver” status. The community hasn’t poured through the code as of yet but it immediately begs certain questions:
Will the work on LuneOS be helped or hindered by additional LG open source code which LG had already been committing too for some time (though they have missed some of their promised bits for a while)? What hardware limitations are there for use of the software? Still looking for that link hidden, please login to view… How flexible (read: portable) is it? How complete is it? HP’s open source webOS was decidedly incomplete… We’ll keep you updated on the developments on this as they become available. For now, the conversation has started on the forums so feel free to
