1970s-style but modern-tech LG set only available in its home South Korea

LG launches retro 1970s-styled LED TV

LG has released a new TV, which is designed to resemble a 1970s-style CRT, but boasts modern features.

The TV is currently only available in LG’s home country of South Korea for 840,000 won (roughly £500), with LG saying there are no plans to sell it elsewhere as of yet.

While retro volume and channel rotary knobs are present, the TV does come with a remote control, with the many other non-1970s features including a 32-inch 1080p widescreen LED display, HDMI and USB ports, and the ability to stream content from smartphones.

Less technologically-focused features mentioned on LG’s Korea Newsroom website are the TV’s ‘classic Scandinavian-style design’ and ‘nostalgia of the old days’.
