Ultimate Ambilight - 4-sided
This unique Philips technology enjoys its ultimate incarnation, with 4-sided Ambilight. Using intelligent LEDs all around 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, with this extraordinary Philips 55 inch TV.
OLED+ for a reference picture, whatever the source
With individually dimming pixels, OLED delivers class-leading picture quality. Deeper blacks and enhanced colours give astonishing contrast that allows you to enjoy the purest, most lifelike image. Philips’ OLED+ maximises OLED’s potential by being compatible with all major HDR formats. Whether it’s HDR10+ or Dolby Vision from games or movies, or HLG from TV, the Philips plays it.
Twin AI processors for incredible picture realism
The P5 AI Dual Engine uses twin processors and AI (Artificial Intelligence) for mighty picture processing power. The exceptionally powerful processors use deep-learning AI algorithms to get the most lifelike images possible. Maximising detail, colour realism and smooth motion, the P5 AI engine optimises OLED and Ambilight for a brilliant performance.
Thrilling sound - with Bowers & Wilkins 3.1.2 speaker system
Unlike most flat-sounding TVs, the 55OLED936 is a sonic treat. Featuring a speaker array by sound supremo, Bowers & Wilkins, this Philips 55” OLED is in a class apart from its rivals. The built-in subwoofer delivers the full thrill from an action movie, while the up-firing speakers create a fully enveloping sound. With a powerful 70 watt amp on board, the capable speaker system gets the oomph it deserves for room-filling sound.
Clearer dialogue – dedicated centre speaker
If you’ve ever struggled to hear dialogue, this TV could help. Rather than speech being shared with the audio left and right channels – which also handle the soundtrack and special effects – dialogue has its own, dedicated centre speaker. This not only makes it clearer and easier to follow but also locates the sound firmly to the image you see on screen – helping to alleviate any lip sync issues.
Dolby Atmos – with upwards-firing sound
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in, the upwards firing speakers deliver true Dolby Atmos sound. Dolby Atmos creates a height channel, giving the true sensation of flight or stormy weather being above you. Just like at the top cinemas, Dolby Atmos has revolutionised the way we now feel totally immersed by the soundtrack.
Gaming made better
With HDMI 2.1 connectivity at its heart*, the Philips 48OLED936 has many features that makes it the ideal choice for gaming. Once connected to one of the HDMI 2.1 sockets, ultra-low-latency mode is automatically selected when beginning 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. The sound system also enhances game play.
*Two HDMI sockets only
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).
Premium design – right down to the leather-backed remote
Fashioned from high quality materials and styled to a premium standard, the Philips 55OLED936 is an eye-catching TV. The sharp lines contrast beautifully with the warm, Kvadrat, wool-based speaker fabric. The quality of design even extends to the remote control, which features a tactile, Muirhead leather-backed finish and backlit keys.
For a TV that puts equal emphasis on sound and vision, the Philips 55OLED936 raises expectations all round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Exceptional customer service from Bournemouth Philips 55 oled937/12 tv and REL T5x subwoofer. Intended to buy Panasonic tv and a replacement B and W subwoofer however when shown the Philips range with ambilight I was hooked. The TV is brilliant deep blacks, sharp realistic colours, and the sound system with the Rel is amazing, its "full" and "real" not a roaring jet engine in your room. Had difficulty getting the back off the remote controller, you need strong grip, hence another store visit for a demo in "remote control" battery replacement which made us all laugh. Next Philips manual showed how to connect the subwoofer on page 31 but not until a home visit after hours was this resolved. It turns out you have to visit page 51 for details of switching "ON" the subwoofer after connecting. However the home visit paid me dividends as he spfesnst a good fifteen minutes adjusting the subwoofer for the best sound. Amazing customer service and fantastic equipment which has replaced my old pioneer set up and seven speakers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DannyM from Not futureproof for gaming... Richer Sounds.... Faultless. If you are planning to buy this for PC/PS5/XBox gaming please note that this model (936) will not support 4k/120hz with or without variable refresh rate. Philips has misled consumers on the specs of this flagship model and is giving very poor explanations to owners to boot. A search of a well known av forum with this model number and the phrase continuous improvements will give you an idea on how Philips responds to customers with legitimate concerns. As much as I love this TV, I cannot recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Galahad from Wow! What a TV!! Picture, simply stunning! Sound, superb from B&W (to be expected of course)! And the ambilight feature, wow!!! I thought it was gonna be a gimmick but no, I wouldn’t want a TV without it now. My research paid off, this was simply a great buy. I’m very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris 7CW from Love the Ambilight Feature I bought this TV a couple of weeks ago. It gives a wonderful picture and the sound is very good. Very easy to operate. The ambilight feature really adds to the experience as it makes it look as if the screen is bigger than it really is. Good value if a bit pricy

Rated 5 out of 5 by pdrake007 from Perfect all in one package This TV has a higher price than most but once you have factored in buying a sound bar and a lighting system (Hue for example) it is excellent value and so much easier to have it all working out of the box with a single power cable. Menus and remote work very well, no lag. Lots of features to help with the longevity of the TV to reduce burn in etc. The instructions tell you to install the TV close to a flat wall for the Ambilight to work at its optimum but I have it in a corner much further away from the wall and still get great results. The audio is very clear and does a great job, but sometimes feels a bit muted when multiple sounds are happening (explosions for example) but I am unsure if that is the media source I am playing or if this would be solved by adding a subwoofer to give it a bit more oomph in these situations, I will probably add a subwoofer anyway to complete the package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Billywhiz from stunning picture Very pleased with my new Philips 55OLED with integral B&W soundbar. The picture is stunning, and in my opinion enhanced by the Ambilight - it gives the appearance of having a bigger screen, in a room that a 65" TV would have been too large. It's the contrast between the bright colours and the very black elements of the picture that are most noticeable, across all genres - Blade Runner 2049 and West Side Story! The soundbar provides a much richer bass, whilst still allowing vocals to be clearly heard. There are still many features to explore in the New Year, but so far, so good.
