Enhanced by stunning Ambilight, the Philips 50PUS8556 shines bright.

Ambilight vision – only from Philips
Unique to Philips, Ambilight technology expands the picture’s presence, giving a more immersive and engaging experience. With intelligent LEDs around three sides of this 50 inch Philips 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.

Gaming made better
With HDMI 2.1 connectivity at its heart, the Philips 50PUS8556 has many features that makes it the ideal choice for gaming. Once connected to one of the two HDMI 2.1 compatible sockets, a low latency mode is automatically selected when begining game play. VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and FreeSync are supported, giving you the fastest and smoothest response possible. Unique to Philips, Ambilight’s gaming mode brings another dimension of immersion.

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 50PUS8556 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, the Philips 50PUS8556 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 Dolby 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, Disney+ 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 (Works with Amazon Alexa).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right type of help I rang my local store as I had a question to ask before purchasing a TV. The person who answered the telephone was very helpful and answered my question and was able to arrange a delivery time that enabled me to have some else available to take the TV in for me. Plus the Phillip 50 inche TV is fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product overall, but a few niggles too... I purchased this less than a fortnight ago. Terrific service from the delivery team who went above and beyond to bring the television to my 2nd floor apartment and place it close to eventual location point. Setup was fairly easy, but... if there's a slight amount of green in whatever is being shown, the saturation for this is overwhelming and diminishes what should be a good viewing experience. There are also smudge/cloud marks within the picture at the top of the screen - which is also disappointing. It's still a great product, but for those of us with a keen eye, it's not as excellent as it really should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value 4k tv with Ambilight party trick Our LG 4k froze on the start up screen so I was looking for a new mid priced non LG tv. 50inch is the max we can fit in the tv gap we have and at this mid size it seems manufacturers drop features. Was pleased to see Philips covers all the HDR formats and have been v pleased with the quality of the pic for lcd/led. Was not sure about the Ambilight, before using it, but it's great with films particularly . Also like the swivel stand! The hdmi ports are tricky to get to , as they are hidden/flat so you can put the tv on the wall. All good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality product, but with a few issues Upgraded from an old 32" Samsung to this 50" beast. Impressed with the build quality, even the remote has some weight. Love the Ambilight, which is the main reason i selected this model, plus the swivel stand (saved me having to buy a wider tv table). Picture quality excellent, 4k out of this world. Sound is also very good (surprised) and i'm not even bothering to turn on my theatre system as often. Now the cons... my theatre system is a receiver, and has other devices connected to the receiver. Unfortunately the tv simply refuses to acknowledge that these devices are there, when i select the HDMI source for the receiver (not an issue with the old Samsung). So i've had to resort to plugging these devices direct into the tv, and buying an optical cable to route sound back from tv to receiver. This is definitely not ideal and disappointing. It may be due to conflicts with newer tech, but when an old tv simply works, i didnt expect an issue with the new model. I will continue to tinker with this problem. Overall i am pleased with the tv. Would i buy it again, well yes, even with the above issues. Ambilight has allowed me to remove a lamp from behind the tv (to stop eye strain), giving more room in that area, and the effects are very good. With picture and sound being great, and all at a reasonable price, i recommend it.
