Product information

John Lewis quality comes to Smart TVs with the JL9000. Enjoy vibrant Full HD with immersive 3D, as well as access to the most exciting apps, games and movie services. The powerful integrated sound bar means that everything sounds as good as it looks. Created in collaboration with renowned manufacturer LG, this TV features the advanced WebOS interface that makes accessing all of these great features as simple as using your smartphone.

Full HD & 3D
See every moment in 1080p Full HD. Colours appear more realistic, blacks are darker and overall contrast is tuned to reveal more detail on screen. Cinema style passive 3D also adds more depth to every moment.

Integrated sound bar
TV speakers can sometimes sound a little flat. The JL9000 solves this with a powerful built-in 50W 2.2 channel sound bar. Soundtracks are richer in everything from films to games and because it’s integrated into the stand, it won’t add bulk to your existing media setup.

Smart TV
You’ll always be entertained with the JL9000’s large suite of smart apps. Stay in touch with Facebook, share your thoughts on Twitter or watch the latest films on Netflix. You don’t have to be tied to TV schedules anymore either thanks to catch up TV services like BBC iPlayer.

This fast, intuitive interface makes getting around your apps and devices simple. It works by pinning your favourite apps, devices and programmes to one sliding menu. WebOS also adds live and on demand TV to a combined guide with a smart recommendation service so you can keep track of everything that’s on.

The built-in camera gives you the freedom to chat to friends and family around the world from the comfort of your armchair. Just download the Skype app and use your regular login details to get started.

Dual Core speed
All of these features would be nothing without a powerful processor. The JL9000’s fast dual core processor handles changes between apps and channels along with the demands of image processing in giving you the best picture possible.

Q & As

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product overall, extended features can be fiddly to set up. I'm really happy with the product and would suggest to anyone looking for a similar LG to consider it. I was looking for a 50" TV + sound bar and bass tube, but the screen size and integrated sound bar (no bass tube) is sufficient for my needs and delivers excellent output for 'normal' TV/film/gaming use. 3D and satellite capability were an unanticipated bonus. This TV replaces my existing Android Smart-TV. The comments mentioned elsewhere regarding problems with Skype seem to have been addressed now and I found all of the usual apps I needed (iPlayer, Demand 5, Skype, YouTube, Netflix - check out the LG Apps website for the full list) with the exception of 4oD. My only problem with this product is that some of the extended features were complex to configure - e.g. SmartShare, Miracast and DivX activation, but the issues may have been down to my phone or network storage. Better help notes could be useful here. 23 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Software/Firmware Update Failure Having viewed the 49JL9000 in our local store in Ipswich, we had high hopes for the television and certainly expected significant improvement over the rather long-in-the-tooth Sony Bravia it was to replace. The delivery arrived within the timescale promised and the television was straightforward to assemble and attach to the wall-mount previously used for the Sony. While the conventional remote caused no problems and was simple to understand, the "magic" remote caused some concern, not least because there appeared to be a missing software (or firmware) update missing. Not only that, but attempting to update (Settings:General:'About This TV':'Check For Updates') resulted, after several minutes, in 'Unable to check for updates'. Every so often and especially if the magic remote is disturbed after being immobile for a while, a message will flash up on the screen to show that the magic remote software was being updated; immediately, a notice at the bottom of the screen showed that the update had failed, at which point the magic remote no longer worked and had to be 'reset' by removing/replacing a battery. I have spoken about this issue with JL's Customer Services (Nick) and have a reference (150218-001197); I have also spoken with LG (Andy, ref: 150218282602) and am now waiting for a response from one or the other! Ignoring the problem with the magic remote and updates, we are very pleased with everything else and - once this issue is resolved - would recommend the television to others. 22 February 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not smart We chose this TV because it does have a super picture. If you use it like a good old TV with a DVD attached then it is good. If you want it for a smart TV then think again. It is very limited with very few apps available. No ITV player for instance. The 3D is passable. We have found it very hard to get it too communicate with tablets and phones we have which is another feature we wanted to use. If it was not for the picture quality I would return this item. The sound is ok for our room but may be a bit lacking in a big room. Would I recommend this TV, not really, it needs to have better software support and more apps. 22 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jury still out John Lewis 49jl9000 television Bought tv, arrived with dent in sound bar, very impressed with this tv though. Excellent customer service. Exchange tv sent, remote controls seem to have a mind of their own and are very slow to respond, with long delays , replaced batteries to no avail. very frustrating especially as this did not happen with first tv. maybe should have just asked for replacement sound bar/stand. 18 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent high quality TV I bought this TV for the size (49" is not an LG sold size) and for WebOS. The 3D element was, I thought, a novelty and was part of the TV that would be ignored, I imagined. The TV itself, and the apps for connectivity to stored photographs, Skype, the web, mobile devices etc. all far exceeded expectations. The included magic remote makes selections easier than a standard remote and my purchase of a bluetooth keyboard and mouse made the whole system complete. The picture quality is simply superb. The thin TV border gives a picture that 'floats' in the air with no heavy frame to distract and the sound, although I use a separate amplifier and speakers is really very good. The biggest surprise was the quality of the 3D picture, which is simply brilliant, and I had to get a 3D player to utilise it fully. All in all, this TV surpassed what I imagined and the whole package is entirely and without reservation recommended. That it is a John Lewis backed item makes it a simple and obvious choice. 10 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by John Lewis 49JL9000 Smart TV 49" Very pleased with this TV. Read the reviews and was a bit concerned but need not have been. Superb picture, neat styling and good sound. Followed the John Lewis video for set-up which went well and resulted in an excellent picture. No problems with watching football. The soundbar is sufficient - not as powerful as my son's separate one but this one is much neater and doesn't need another remote control. The 3D is stunning - the free samplers give a great introduction. WebOS took a bit of learning and the electronic programme guide is comprehensive but scrolling is a bit slow as you have to load pages All in all I would highly recommend this TV. 25 January 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great design and picture but...... I bought this TV last night after a lot of deliberation and comparing tv models. It all came down to this TV and the Sony kdl50w829, I chose this TV because of the design which I think is great. The built in soundbar isn't great at all but it does make the TV very stable on a TV stand........... The picture quality is great and the features are great. But, there always is one, when watching football for example the DSE type vertical banding is pretty noticeable. A common problem on most LCD tv's but worse apparently on LG panels in particular. I tried different settings, software/firmware updates etc but while it improved it was still pretty noticeable and as watching football was the main reason for buying I decided it had to go back. I returned the TV and bought the Sony, £100 more expensive but I hope it will be worth it. The Sony will be ready to collect later in the week as no in-store stock was available so I can't say how it compares yet. If it's not acceptable then it will be going back as well and I will stick to my current 2011 Samsung on which the DSE banding is hardly noticeable and you have to really look hard to see it. Just a pity the John Lewis 49JL9000 wasn't the same. 18 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Grear choice Very pleased so far, great picture, easy to navigate. Love the screen share function. Far superior to my Sony 42" 7 Series (bought last month), which takes 10 seconds to start, Miracast does not work and has painful filesharing from my laptop. Only critisisms would be - sound bar not that powerful and prgramme guide a bit slow. 15 December 2014
