Compact enough to suit any space yet big on quality and features, the Philips 42OLED808 punches well beyond its size.

PLEASE NOTE: This model does not come with any apps related to Freeview Play/Digital UK. This includes BBC iPlayer, ITVX, All4, My5. If you wish to access one of these apps, we recommend pairing with a Smart device such as a set-top box or games console or casting these apps to your TV from an Android or Apple phone.

All of the quality, taking up less of the space
The Philips 42OLED808 is a compact TV that’s ideal for smaller rooms or desktop use. With the combination of an OLED screen, encircled by Ambilight, you get an expansive picture that appears larger than the screen itself, yet still precisely focused and lifelike. Add in the latest Google TV for class-leading Smarts, and best-in-class gaming ability and you have a TV of supreme ability.

OLED screen for picture perfection
Delivering the ultimate picture, this Philips 42 inch TV uses OLED technology, which is rare at this screen size. Unlike conventional LED TVs, OLED doesn't need a backlight. Each pixel makes its own colour and light. When they are turned off, they are completely black. With deeper blacks you get enhanced colours and astonishing contrast that allows you to enjoy the purest, most lifelike image.

Enhanced by Ambilight
With such pure colour and brightness, Philips’s unique multi-mode Ambilight technology takes full advantage of the OLED screen. Using intelligent LEDs around the sides and top of the TV, colour from the picture is cast into the room – in real time. Colour, vibrancy and excitement move beyond the screen and into your living room, bringing you a viewing experience beyond the ordinary.

Compatible with DTS Play-Fi Home Theatre – just add wireless speakers for surround sound
For added versatility, the Philips 42OLED808 is compatible with the innovative DTS Play-Fi Home Theatre system. When using the DTS Play-Fi app, this lets you integrate the TV into a wireless home cinema speaker system, using the TV as the centre channel. Wireless surround sound doesn’t get much easier or more flexible than this.

Optimised processing, with Philips’s 7th Gen P5 AI
Philips’s latest P5 processor works in tandem with the Google TV Smart TV operating system and uses AI to optimise the picture quality from all sources. It monitors light levels in the room and adjusts the TV’s brightness, gamma and colour, in real time, to optimise the image. The processor also offers Eye Care, Dark Detail Optimisation and Colour Temperature Optimisation modes, for a bespoke viewing experience.

IMAX Enhanced and Filmmaker Mode for a cinematic performance
Nothing beats the big screen thrill of IMAX and now, thanks to IMAX enhanced, you can enjoy the power of IMAX on your TV, too. Used with IMAX certified 4K HDR content, IMAX Enhanced uses their proprietary digital remastering technology (DMR) to deliver ultra-vivid images. Designed in collaboration with filmmakers and studios, Filmmaker Mode lets you experience the cinematic vision, exactly as the director intended. Overriding the TV’s own motion and picture processing, Filmmaker Mode presents the correct aspect ratio, colour and frame rate – just as the filmmakers intended.

Multi-format HDR support, including Dolby Vision and HDR10+ for a stunning picture from all sources
As well as IMAX Enhanced, the Philips 42OLED808 also offers Dolby Vision and multi-format HDR, including HDR10+. Along with Dolby Vision, HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology. Each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments.

Incredible gaming features, including Dolby Vision Gaming
As one of the first TVs to feature the innovative MediaTek Pentonic 1000 chipset, this Philips TV is incredible with gaming. Highlights include Dolby Vision gaming at up to 4k/120Hz, bringing a truly cinematic feel to your gameplay. It’s also compatible with VRR (Variable refresh Rate), AMD FreeSync and Nvidia G-Sync systems, giving you super-smooth gameplay on a wide range of consoles and PCs. Unique to Philips, Ambilight’s gaming mode brings another dimension of immersion.

Google TV
Using Google’s world-class interface, Google TV makes accessing this Philips TV’s smart features a breeze. Providing access to over 700,000 movies and TV episodes and over 10,000 apps and games, Google TV covers all the Smart entertainment you need. With access to Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime, Apple TV and Disney+, all your favourite streaming services are covered. Customise your home screen with the apps you use the most, enjoy recommendations, curate your movie nights and even add to your watch list via your smartphone – Google TV makes sense of Smart TV.

Voice control with built-in Google Assistant and works with Alexa
Working via the built-in Google TV system, Google Assistant helps you find content, apps and even controls compatible smart home devices, such as the Philips Hue lighting system. All this is available by simple voice command. Alternatively, connect your Amazon Echo or similar Alexa device and use voice commands via Alexa (Works with Alexa).

Premium design
Encircled by an ultra-slim metal bezel, this Philips TV looks sleek and unobtrusive. The satin chrome swivel stand not only completes the classic style but also proves practical too, letting you turn the TV for the best viewing angle.

Ideal for premium TV in smaller rooms or as a versatile desktop screen, the Philips 42OLED808 makes a crystal-clear choice.

Please note, this Smart TV features third party Apps. These Apps may be modified or withdrawn at any time. There may also be a delay in launching some of the featured Apps. Catch-up TV Apps may vary by region. The function and availability of apps is not covered by the manufacturer’s or Richer Sounds’ guarantee.
