Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello and thank you for the question. In short- Yes, the current software update for the LG 55EG9600 updates the TV to be HDR capable. This is automatically done as soon as the TV is setup and connected to the internet- the TV will perform a software update within 5 minutes of being turned on, and the HDR as well as any other software patches LG has will be updated to the TV automatically.
