Product information

To see all that this TV has to offer, please drop by a branch and ask a Partner for a demonstration.

A TV that shapes itself around you. The Samsung F8000’s quad-core is fast enough to juggle TV programmes, apps and social networking without missing a beat. A lush Full HD 1080p panel unlocks the finer details in every moment, while Active 3D playback makes everything more immersive.

Tired of hunting for something to watch? The Samsung F8000 features an intelligent recommendation system that notices what you like to watch and points you in the right direction. Voice and motion control even makes it as easy as waving a hand or asking a question to channel hop, browse and more.

Key benefits:

  • Samsung S-Recommendation will change the way you watch TV. This technology learns what you like to watch and when - making it a breeze to track down similar programmes. All you have to do is ask!

  • Smart Hub provides immediate access to all your favourite shows via the ON TV Screen and cleverly organises and manages your content into five panels - On TV; Movies & TV Shows; Photos, Videos & Music; Social and Apps. The intuitive interface uses easily recognisable thumbnails for instant previews to help you choose.

  • This TV is also Smart Evolution ready. This means that in future, your set can be boosted using a separate Smart Evolution Kit that delivers even more processing power.

  • The incredibly sharp LED screen gives you vibrant colours and more defined contrast on all your media. Large enough for the living room, it’s slimline enough to tuck away in the bedroom - and because it’s LED, it consumes less power. Ultimate micro dimming gives exceptionally bright and precise LED backlighting for sharper, more realistic images.

  • 1000Hz CMR (Clear Motion Rate) gives you supreme clarity of motion, sharpness and contrast for optimum picture quality.

  • New and improved Smart Interaction 2.0 takes searching for the remote control out of the mix! Just wave hello at the TV, then guide the pointer where you want. Adjust volume, change channels and more with a just simple gestures.

  • The retractable 5MP camera can be concealed when you're watching TV but is easily accessible for high-quality, large-scale Skype chats. Share a smile with loved ones and create a personalised smart hub profile for rapid face recognition access.

  • A powerful quad-core processor enables much faster access to Smart TV functions, higher-quality video streaming and true multitasking capabilities.

  • Bring a new dimension to movies and games with cutting-edge 3D. Samsung’s Active 3D technology delivers smooth performance and crystal-clear Full HD images to get you right into the action. Special technology also converts 2D to 3D, so your old favourites won't be left out.

  • Integrated Freeview and freesat HD tuners let you enjoy all your favourite programmes and more in stunning HD. To watch Freeview HD broadcasts you’ll need to check that you can receive it in your area. To enjoy Freesat broadcasts you will need a dish and cabling installed. Freesat does not require a contract or a subscription – just a one-off payment for your dish and installation. To organise installation, please visit or call one of our shops.

  • 4 HDMI slots, 3 USB ports and a SCART socket mean enough space for all your consoles, blu-ray players and satellite receivers. Spend less time juggling connections and more time enjoying your media.

  • Smart View turns your compatible smartphone or tablet into a second TV screen via your home network. Take programmes with you on your device or watch a different channel to the main TV by selecting a different source in the app.

  • Allshare lets you stream and share music, photos, movies and other multimedia directly to your TV. It's equipped with Cloud technology, so you can upload content to a central web storage account to access anywhere.

  • Includes 2 pairs of 3D glasses.

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Very Happy Husband I purchased this tv as a present for my husband, he is very pleased with it, the picture is excellent and the sound is good enough to do without a soundbar. We find the voice control and hand waving features fun to use in front of the grandchildren, likewise the 3d, but they honestly are not really worth paying extra for. The rest of the features are great, it is a big step up from our old sony flat screen in the our little snug. We didn't think we would use it all that much, only when we have the family around, but we find we now sit in front of the fire in our sitting room every night and it's costing us a fortune in extra heating! It is,however, far better value than an extra holiday, we are really enjoying tv again as the I player etc means we can always find something to watch. 09 February 2014
GREAT ITEM This is one awesome tv could have not found one better , and with your free extended warranty made it even better. thanks 12 November 2013
Good all round TV Plenty of features and the netflix, iplayer apps are really useful. Picture is generally good although i'm a bit upset that on black or darker screens you can see light bleeding in from the edge. Not sure whether my set is faulty or not. Sounds is alo good for a TV of this nature. Voice recognition is a waste of time, as is the hand gesture features. 3D is good although nothing broadcast in 3D is really worth watching and one set of 3D glasses run out of battery after 3 days when we have hardly even used them. You can pretty much scrap your rubbish sky controller and use the track pad one that comes with the set, shame it doesn't have a button to jump directly to the sky guide though. 09 October 2013
Stunning images! Out of the box this TV delivers amazing images, after a little tweaking it's simply stunning! Colours appear natural and blacks are deep. Even the audio is reasonable for everyday use from such a thin TV. My only quibble is with the stylish stand, it's as wide as the TV so might be a problem for some. Altogether a brilliant TV with some very clever features. 01 April 2013
