Have I missed something, or has this new TV already been discussed somewhere?

Eclipse boots with Bang & Olufsen logo for just a few seconds due to fast bootup time. There is no LG logo on the OS, but it is LG’s interface of course.

Not sure if I remembered but Harmony does not have the logo anymore due to even faster bootup.

The Contour should either have no start up logo or a B&O logo imo. Also I wonder if you can adjust sound settings through the tv interface or that you need to app to do it on the Stage. In other words is it a Beovision (light) or are you constantly reminded that it are two different products with its own setup interface

I guess you need to adjust settings through the B&O app, as stock WebOS does not offer such functionality. But I don’t see that as an issue, as this is the case for several products and I suppose the app will recognise it as a Contour and not a Stage...

Sounds good! I wouldn’t mind to adjust through the app. Also, i can live without a b&o as long as it doesn’t start with an LG logo and doesn’t display the LG logo in the UI. I’m getting closer to the purchase ;)

But it does show LG logos, right?

I might be missing something, but startup procedure aside, the main UI is all LG's web OS

There is no escaping that - it's the bright colored UI, the very same you see on any LG OLED. Today's Beo visions are just a (functionally) LG consumer TV with added B&O sound part, and the ability to use the BeoRemote.

Not a bad combination by any means, but you don't get a B&O UI only anymore

That’s true.

But I think—given the fluidity of TV technology—that B&O’s decision to focus on delivering the best B&O user and sonic experience—with a premiere brand like LG, is definitely worth the money asked. There are more than a few paths to get the buyer into a price point they are comfortable with without sacrificing what the core of B&O has always been about: The sonic and design experience.

Cant say on the Contour, but I have the new Eclipse ver. 2, and there is no logo at all when starting up. No B&O, no LG.

The TV is an LG, it comes in a LG box. It is exactly the same TV you buy in Currys/Walmart (select your own budget Electrical retailer)  -  why would it start up with a B&O Logo?

Ban boring signatures!

It's literally an LG CX in a frame with a Stage. Nothing more, nothing less. No integration at all. No different from my LG GX + Stage combination!

Also, you don't get obvious LG logos or similar even on the CX/GX. It's fairly subtle.

However, like I said earlier in the discussion, 95% of people outside of this board would never know it isn't a B&O TV. It really does look seamless. The design is fairly impressive considering it's 3 separate components combined together. It's hard to know it's using the Stage. Just looks like a TV speaker. You don't see the Stage frame at all.

agree, had the chance to see the set at my dealer the other day. Really nice looking kit!

3 separate components? Does that mean 3 mains leads? Not really all in one system then! 😁
