Free 4K Netflix Premium for six months bundled with LG’s Ultra HD tellies

If you snap up a 4K Ultra HD smart TV from LG, you’ll get six months of Netflix thrown in for free. 

That’s not bog standard Netflix either, that’s Netflix Premium, which gives you access to 4K content like House of Cards, Better Call Saul, Marco Polo and the soon-to-be released Daredevil

Access to Netflix Premium normally costs £8.99/month. On top of being able to stream content in 4K, you’ll also be able to watch on up to four devices at once, so you can hand out logins to other family members or housemates, or keep them for yourself. 

On LG’s 4K OLED TVs, like the 55EC930V, 4K Netflix content should look nothing short of incredible, thanks to the high degree of contrast only possible on OLED panels.

“This UHD offering paired with LG’s innovation in TV technology means users will be able to view their favourite shows like they’ve never experienced before.” 

Whether you’ve got deep enough pockets to be able to snap up an LG 4K smart TV is largely academic if you can’t get a superfast broadband service in your area. 

Netflix recommends that you’ve got at least 25Mbps spare bandwidth coming in to your house, so unless you live in an area where there’s FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet)-based services available from BT’s network, Virgin Media or a next-gen fibre provider like Hyperoptic, you’re not going to have any 4K fun. 

While breakthroughs in compression technology means that might be less of a problem in the future, right now if you don’t have a superfast service there’s not much else you can do. 

The promotion is running in the UK and Ireland from April 9 to July 29 and applies to purchases of the following models: EG960V, EF950V, EC980V, EC970V, EG920V, UF950V, UF940V, UF860V, UG870V, UF850V, UF830V, UF770V, JL9100.
