#hintingseason: the lg oled tv is now at best buy


I received a Best Buy gift card for writing this post. All opinions are, as always, 100% my own.

This is going to totally make me sound like a dinosaur but I remember getting our first color TV.

Before then, my sister and I had an annual tradition that we looked forward to all year. My uncle, who lived downstairs, was one of the first people in our neighborhood to own a color TV. So, when The Wizard of Oz aired on TV, we would run down to his apartment right as Dorothy was about to enter Oz. It was a magical experience and we were always excited about it.

I recently was in Best Buy and saw a new product that left me as awestruck as I once felt about that color TV.

LG’s OLED TV is a great-looking TV with amazing picture quality. I am not a big tech person but I do love watching TV and can tell you that what you see on the screen is truly exceptional: sharp and vibrant, with Infinite Contrast and LG’s exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology for richer, brighter colors. All of this provides more realism and depth, and a really unique viewing experience.

And the 55” screen itself is gorgeous. It’s only .17” thick at its thinnest point – that is literally pencil thin – so you can actually display it almost anywhere. Because it’s ingeniously curved, it doesn’t matter where you sit to watch it. You get a perfect view from anywhere.


I would love to watch Downton Abbey on this TV!

I’d love to watch anything on this TV – and I can through Netflix, Hulu Plus and YouTube, all of which stream directly because it’s a Smart TV.

The LG OLED TV also has a new webOS platform, which seems pretty intuitive and pulls together all of your entertainment choices, offering new options and organizing your viewing history.

This would make the perfect holiday gift for the family. Imagine gathering around it to watch a movie and start your own tradition.

With this beauty gracing your living room, you will totally agree with Dorothy when she says, “There’s no place like home.”


  1. I too remember when the first color TV came into the family. It was a revelation. It’s amazing what technology has brought in the intervening years.

  2. We love family movie nights. Would love to have this TV!

  3. It certainly would be the perfect gift for my husband. I’ll have to check this out. Haven’t thought of anything for him yet.

  4. Amanda Love says:

    I’ve been seeing a lot of this TV lately so maybe it’s a sign that I need to get it. 🙂

  5. I so want this TV: The colors are just stunning

  6. Not only no color or cable or remote, boring and inconvenient, but the limiting size selection and the very heavy weight of the old models we had to live with! I think I described myself!
    This is a great item for the hinting season to begin.

  7. I remember when having color on TV meant having a thin piece of film like a photo negative (another dinosour!) that you put over top of the tv screen.

  8. Ruth Curran says:

    Looks like an amazing sound system on this model as well. Now that is worth another look!

  9. We had family movie night last night and I can tell you that we need a new tv!

  10. We’re getting a bigger TV soon but not that big!

  11. When I was a kid we had an old B&W TV. I don’t remember my parents replacing it while any of us were still living with them. Odd to think of now, given most people have as many TV’s as they do cell phones!

  12. I love this one. Am putting it on my list!

  13. Looks great! I hope your wishes comes true so you can watch yourself and your new BFFFFF Oprah on it on your new talk show together! xo

  14. We are thinking about getting a new t.v. in our living room because we have the old tube style. These sound really nice.

  15. My husband has been talking about this TV for weeks. I told him we would talk when our TV bites the dust! It is really nice!

  16. I love the title of this post. I could never tell my husband that this is what I wanted with a hint, I would have to drive him to the store and watch him pay for it. LOL

  17. Looks like the perfect TV, I need a new one badly but the price seems a little scary!

  18. Alisha Kostiuk says:

    My husband has been dying for this TV. I have heard a million times how it is time for us to upgrade.

  19. Oh my gosh our plasma is nearly dead and we are going to BB this week to get a new TV for our bedroom. I can’t wait to check this one out. I was all prepared to get a Samsung like the one I have in my living room bc we love it but now I can’t wait to check this one out. Thanks much!!!!

  20. This television is on my *someday I am going to win the lotto* wish list. Maybe, someday 😉

  21. I can’t believe it is pencil thin! What a beautiful TV!

  22. Wow, this looks really spectacular. Thin and bright colors.

  23. I just recently moved the big old “box tv” out of my living room and put the flat screen in there.. I am just not a “fancy tv” person..
