LG 6200 TV Series: Everything you need to know about LG’s budget TV family

Our Rating :

Here's why you should invest in LG's affordable 4K HDR TV family


  • IPS panel has wide viewing angles
  • WebOS interface is easy to use
  • All major streaming services supported - Prime Video, Netflix, Now TV
  • Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant compatible


  • Black levels and contrast not as good as VA panels

As one of LG’s more affordable ranges of TVs, the 6200 Series presents a tempting proposition for anyone looking for big-screen 4K HDR thrills on a budget. With LG’s excellent smart TV interface supporting all the major streaming services such as Netflix, Prime Video and Now TV, and screen sizes ranging from 49in to 60in, there’s plenty to like. Here we’ll explain which different models there are, and pinpoint the key features that you really need to know about.

Best current deal | LG 55UK6200PLA

LG’s whole 6200 family has seen regular discounts during its lifetime, and the 55in model is now under £400. The 43in model was briefly on sale at £274 for Prime Day but it’s sold out for the time being. This far larger 55in version is still really great value, though.

LG 6200 Series: What you need to know

Unlike pricier models, LG’s entire 6200 range uses IPS panel technology. TVs a little further up the product ranges tend to use VA panel technology, which has the edge when it comes to contrast and black levels. Although IPS is largely considered to be inferior, one of the key benefits is that it provides much-improved viewing angles. If you’re not able to sit directly in front of your TV, then a TV with an IPS panel may actually look better as, unlike a VA panel, the image won’t wash out and lose its punch when you sit to one side.

Another key feature is LG’s excellent webOS Smart TV operating system. This isn’t just slick and easy to use: it provides lots of choice for apps, including all the streaming services you could ask for. All the major players are supported, including Netflix, Prime Video, Now TV and BBC iPlayer. There are both DVB-T2 and DVB-S2 tuners, too, so you can get Freeview HD and Freesat HD broadcasts via your TV aerial or satellite dish.

One nifty little bonus is support for smart-home assistants including Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. If you already have a compatible device, then you can install the relevant app in the webOS operating system and control the TV with a selection of voice commands. If you’re the kind of person who’s always losing the remote down the back of the sofa, it’s a nice touch.

If you’re wondering what the key differences are between the 6200 and LG’s similarly named 6300 family, well then so are we. Apart from the addition of Wi-Fi Direct, which allows you to stream content directly from your smartphone to the TV, we can’t see any major differences between the two families. Both use IPS panels across the different screen sizes available, and both use LG’s webOS Smart TV interface. It’s possible that the differences may be down to slightly improved image processing in the pricier 6300 models, but we can’t find any reference to that in the manuals.

LG 6200 Series: Price and competition

At this kind of price, you’re going to be looking primarily at other discounted entry-level models from the major manufacturers such as Samsung, Panasonic, Philips and Sony. Apart from a few current deals from Samsung, such as the NU7100 deal we found below, we’re not seeing much that rivals this current Spring Sale deal from LG.

One of the key contenders in the budget TV market, however, is Hisense. We tested the company’s Black Friday one-off model, the Hisense H43AE6100UK, and found it was surprisingly good for its RRP of £319. That’s since sold out, but the closest option is the H43A6200UK, which actually has a slightly brighter display – no bad thing. That currently retails at £299 for the 43in model, and £349 for the 50in model, so is well worth a look if you’re after a budget 4K TV.
