If no answer comes here, and you can't find it on the LG site or in reviews or in webshops or by comparing the specs, it's a good question for the sales person in the shop, or the sales dept of your local LG office. They should know.

Hi,
nobody seems to know. What I found out by myself is that LLA models are being offered in Germany and Austria. In other countries like France, Italy, Denmark, Croatia, Poland, Romania model PLA is being offered. LG does not have office for TVs in my country (Slovenia).
Interesting...

Then buy what's available in Slovenia, without looking into what is sold in other countries.
If your shops sell both models, they should be able to tell you the difference.

Region codes most likely.

A long time ago I worked for Motorola and had to deal with export issues. Because some countries required this or that we might have to make a variation on the product model to accommodate a country requirement. In the case of TVs there can be tuner changes or now with Smart TVs a requirement to install a country code for the Netflix app to use.

This way this country code is read by Netflix and assures compliance with content restrictions is that country.

As to the actual hardware, unless there are over the air differences that demand a different tuner, the models are likely the same hardware wise but smart TVs need a country code.
