LG Korea has unveiled a somewhat unusual TV - at least today. Their new TV is called LG 1 Retro and with its very familiar looks it might trigger your inner nostalgic feelings. It’s not a LCD-TV, plasma-TV nor OLED-TV; it’s actually a CRT TV in chic retro design.

Digital television in retro-style

The antenna on top of the TV can receive digital broadcasts using a built-in digital tuner. But if you want the real old-school experience you can switch the image to black/white or sepia.

Inputs are located on the back and LG has included an adaptor for old gaming consoles such as the SEGA. You can also output mono-sound if you want.

LG delivers the model in a cardboard box. The TV’s model number is 14SR1EB but for now it’ll only be available for sale in South Korea. The price is 190 Euro.
