Still waiting for replacement for damaged tv " NOT HAPPY
The LG UF6800 is a 4K ULTRA HD TV with a sophisticated 4K up-scaler built in
it’s a shame there are no HD tuners built in
a decent level of build quality
Do buy the LG E7 if you like fancy design along with slightly better sound quality built in
As others have mentioned it does have a Satellite tuner built in although this isn't technically Freesat as it just finds channels
expect to get many more years of dependable service
