See the incredible difference Ambilight makes, with the Philips 50PUS8555.

Ambilight 3-sided for unique vision
Unique to Philips, Ambilight technology expands the picture’s presence, giving a more immersive and engaging experience. With intelligent LEDs around the top and sides 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 to bring you a viewing experience beyond the ordinary.

Philips P5 Perfect Picture Engine delivers stunning image quality
With huge processing power, the Philips P5 Engine delivers the best picture possible – whatever the source. Enjoy the deepest blacks and the brightest whites, the most vivid, brilliant colours and natural, lifelike skin tones. You also get Philips’ most fluid, razor sharp pictures with incredible detail and depth, in sport, movie, or any other genres - every time and from any source.

HDR optimised, with HDR10+
For the highest quality picture, HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology to date. With HDR10+ each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments. The 50PUS8555 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, this Philips 50” TV is also compatible with Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas around the world. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound
With Dolby Atmos decoding, this Philips 50 inch TV has the potential to deliver a more immersive sound with a truly cinematic feel. Other sound enhancements include Clear Dialogue for enhanced speech, Night mode for reduced dynamic volume and Bass Enhancement for a richer sound.

Android TV for smart TV
In a complicated world of catch-up TV, Android TV makes sense of it all. Using a clear, intuitive interface, Android lets you effortlessly switch between Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and many other services. Android lets you pick up where you left off in the latest series or check out new movie releases – all without getting lost within complicated menus.

Voice control with built-in Google Assistant and works with Alexa
Working via the built-in Android 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.

Sleek design – with swivel stand
With its metal finish bezel, the 50PUS8555 exudes quality. The swivel stand lets you get the perfect viewing angle – avoiding annoying reflections in the room.

Handy, QWERTY remote
Flip the remote over and you’ll find a very handy QWERTY keypad. Perfect for entering passwords or for entering text on search engines and websites, this thoughtful feature saves a huge amount of time compared with using a shared numeric keypad.

Fully connected
Four HDMI sockets make it easy to connect a Blu-ray player, games console, TV set-top box and other device. All sockets are HDMI 2.0 version with HDCP 2.3, making this TV compatible with UHD Blu-ray players and 4K HDR streaming services.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use great features Our LG smart TV developed a fault in the screen and we were offered the Philips as a warranty replacement. I am very pleased with it, easy to set up and a more user friendly experience than the LG. Also the Ambilight feature is brilliant and really enhances the viewing experience. Great tv

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new TV with great service thrown in for free... I bought a new Phillips TV from Richer Sounds. I shopped around and after a great discussion with a member of staff in the Southampton store I ended up buying from Richer Sounds. The TV is great and an upgrade from an 8 year old Samsung TV. The Ambilight technology was the reason I chose the TV and it doesn't disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV I had been looking for a new tv to replace a smaller one in the bedroom, after reading a few reviews, I decided on the Philips 50PUS8555, I chose this one for 2 reasons, it’s has Dolby Sound/Vision and also the ambient lighting, ( I have the hue sync box down stairs and it’s an excellent feature). The tv it’s self is well made, not plasticky , agood colour with the silver surround that goes well in the bedroom, the apps and menus are all easy to use and set up. The picture and sound quality are brilliant as well as the lighting, I actually find it better than the hue sync box. Richer Sounds them selves were excellent, the sales assistant couldn’t have been more helpful, went through all I questions I asked, explained the delivery details and so on. The delivery company also were very good, excellent communication, arranging delivery time slot and date and on actual date getting in touch just before actual drop off for estimated time of delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A convert to Ambilight Have been using my Philips 50PUS8555 for just over a week now and on the whole I’m very impressed. The picture reproduction with HD and UHD formats is very impressive, being rich yet natural. The only downside of this TV is the reproduction with standard definition programming, but I accept that a 4KTV is not designed with that as the optimum consideration. With some menu tinkering, I’m now even happier with the reproduction for all programming. The Ambilight has wow factor for me and is not just a gimmick. It genuinely seems to make the picture staging feel larger and conventional TVs now seem quite flat in comparison. The ease of setup was also a real boon and the Android TV interface meant it was a doddle to add the apps we use regularly (Disney+, Prime, YouTube, Netflix, All4, iPlayer and ITV Hub). This TV is the first time I’ve experienced the Android TV interface and I’m very impressed with it. Also, I struggled getting a stable broadcast of some freeview channels, especially the HD channels, with my previous TV (a 10 year old Sony LCD HDTV), but this TV provides superb freeview programming. At this price point (£549 with a 6yr warranty) this TV will certainly take some beating IMO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with my choice Replacement for older TV ,( which had developed a few problems,) easy to set up, sound & picture great, & ambilight adds that bit extra. ( & must add 1st class service from Richer Sounds Cheltenham)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ambi-light adds a whole new dimension Purchased This TV for my man cave and so glad I did. The picture quality is nice and deep, better than I expected tbh. sound quality, ok not the best but it is very good after all it was £500 so for what it cost it certainly meets expectations. it’s the ambilight that makes the difference here, you do have to make sure it is away from the wall by 10-15cm to get the best effect. No good if it’s going to sit in a corner though. That’s the TV richer sounds purchase smooth as always plus 6 year warranty!!
