Got the Samsung QE65Q950R just before Christmas. Watching football noticed vertical white lines highlighted by the grass. Same when watching skiing. JL took it back and delivered a new one today. Same problem. Is this common with these 8k TVs?

Thanks gel. Not noticeable with films, normal tv. Just ordered a high quality HDMI cable to see if that makes a difference.

A bit more info. Contacted Samsung, who using some clever technology, looked at the tv through my phone and agreed that there was a problem. More bands than lines I think

A quick google search revealed loads of similar reports in the States. As I wrote, I've ordered a high quality HDMI cable, just in case ... but I'm not optimistic. Otherwise John Lewis will have it back.

Brilliant for movies. Black colours are great.Everything, except the banding, is excellent but I mainly watch sport. Glad yours is good and thanks for your input.

It's an older model and reportedly the viewing angles are not as good. I'll wait for a bit and see how things develop. My Sony 4k tv is great
