LG will be pushing OLED TVs hard in 2017 with five new lines, ranging from the wallpaper-thin W7 series to the entry-level B7 range. There'll also be new 4K HDR LCD TVs with Nano Cell technology not to mention a decent selection of Full HD models too.

HDR is currently the big TV buzzword, and LG's OLED TVs will support four flavours in 2017: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG and the recently announced Advanced HDR by Technicolor. The latter is a new format, produced in association with the video specialists at Technicolor and is set to feature on select pieces of content later in the year.

New for LG's 2017 OLED TVs is HDR Effect, a video processing mode which will take non-HDR content frame by frame, and allegedly improve brightness in specific areas, enhance contrast and render more precise images.

In an exciting first, all LG's OLED TVs will be compatible with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The way Dolby Atmos is delivered will depend on the range you opt for. For the W7 'wallpaper' OLED it's a delivered via a completely separate soundbar, for G7 and E7 the TV stand doubles as a soundbar while, intriguingly, LG's C7 and B7 ranges use extra processing and their own internal speakers to deliver Atmos. An interesting approach, we're sure you'll agree.

Alternatively, C7 and B7 are also compatible with LG's new SJ8 soundbar which uses LG's TV Perfect Fit Kit. This allows you swap out the supplied stand for a special stand which integrates the soundbar.

Changing technology slightly, LG will debut its Nano Cell tech on its 4K HDR LCD TVs - LG claims it can absorb surplus light, the knock-on effect being improved colours and viewing angles.

LG's TVs also get an improved operating system for 2017, in the shape of WebOS 3.5. It keeps the general look we've come to know and like, but adds extra features such as Magic Link, which can provide instant recommendations and Magic Zoom which allows you to enlarge and record any part of the screen you want to see up close.

LG has confirmed that there won't be any 3D support from its TVs this year, which is hardly surprising given the fact Samsung and Sony's 2017 ranges have also snubbed the format.

Curved TVs are also off the agenda, with LG and Sony both confirming all 2017 TVs will be available only as flatscreens.

We're still to get firm pricing from LG, but we're hoping to get more of an idea in the coming weeks. We've been told OLED models will hit stores during the first week of April, with 65in and 55in sets the first to appear and 77in variants to follow at a later date.

LG dropping 3D

I was surprised that LG decided to drop 3D support since it was something that gave them a clear advantage over the other tv  manufacturers.

2016 LG OLED

I'm so pleased I've purchased a 2016 LG OLED TV. (Oled65C6). I love 3d movies and the 3d on this TV is the best ever. Even watching 2d blu rays in 3d mode is fabulous. So much better than the Panasonic active 3d system I had previously. (58ax802b)

LG 3d is what made me purchase a LG tv over a Samsung in 2016.

No 3D, No LG

Their work on OLED is very impressive but other technology is coming along from other manufacturers. By throwing away 3D, having mastered it, they're throwing away me as a loyal customer and fan. Very foolish and disappointing in my view.

3D

About time manufacturers saw sense and got rid of this useless piece of technology anyway.  Why anyone would want to watch a film with a pair of 3D glasses on is bonkers. I've done it. Didn't like it. Won't do it again. HDR is the future. Glad my TV no longer has it!
