Enjoy a big screen made even more immersive, with the Ambilight-equipped Philips 70PUS8555.

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 70PUS8555 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, this Philips 70” 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 70 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 its metal finish bezel, the 70PUS8555 exudes quality. The stand adjusts to suit narrower support surfaces and soundbars, helping you to keep the style clean and uncluttered.

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. Other connections include twin USB sockets, featuring recording to a compatible USB device. Throw in an optical connection for a soundbar/base plus headphone socket and you've everything you need from your new TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Android TV with 3 sided ambilight Bought this TV about 2 weeks ago at a great price. The TV comes with Android 9 and the 3 sided ambilight which always creates a great experience. As with all non OLED TVs the black shades are more great and often have pixilated shadows, however this can be reduced with some fine tuning. I would certainly choose this TV over Any other at the same price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value, Happy with the Pic Quality I bought this TV to replace a Sony I had broken whilst removing for decorating (grrr). This set was £300 cheaper, 15 inches bigger and has ambilight. I'm not a videophile but I do see the differences in quality TVs and I'm happy with my purchase. There are some clouds seen in totally black scenes but it's very minor. Otherwise it's very vibrant, motion is handled well and I can't notice the supposed nits difference between this and the Sony. I'm happy with my purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok but has issues Bought this tv from richer sounds Newcastle in February 2021 had a Phillips from them before and the ambilight caught my eye and the bigger screen great service from richer sounds but this tv does not handle motion very well at all I think the picture looks great but I keep getting a blue outline on items on the screen when in motion I have tried multiple settings over the past few months and if I turn the brightness high it reduces this but it does not get rid of it completely it is the worst on black and white movies and when gaming I have read up on it and apparently it’s called ghosting and is part of the motion handling on tv’s. It has certainly put me off buying another Phillips tv. As I say I have tried all types of settings to get rid of this used a calibration blu ray disk but to no avail. It’s a shame as I think the tv so good apart from that and I guess I’m stuck with it till my next tv purchase which won’t be a Phillips

Rated 1 out of 5 by from On The Surface, It Looks Great..... ..But beware! I bought one of these at the beginning of 2021. Now, as it happens, I had previously bought a 50" version for my son's use with his PS5 and, although he didn't have the PS5 at the time, it looked very good with his PS4. The Ambilight feature, which I had dismissed many moons ago when Philips first introduced it, I found that I was forced to change my mind. It certainly added a certain something, so when Richers notified my of their deal for the 70" version, I was sold, particularly as my previous TV (a Sony) was beginning to lose pixels. The set arrived, was set up, and I was chuffed as..... well, you can fill in the blanks. Now, I must, at this point, emphasise that Richer Sounds were totally as I would expect Richer Sounds to be - friendly, helpful, efficient, good value and I will not have any hesitation in dealing with them in the future, but this Philips TV.... how I wish I could go back in time and undo my purchase. I have lived with this set for about 8 months now and I am just so frustrated with it. I have tinkered with the picture setting so many times and have yet to find anything that looks totally acceptably to me. I run (or try to run) the sound through an external home cinema amplifier, which it sometimes does not recognise, which is a bit frustrating particularly as I'm also running a PS3 and 4k blu-ray through it to connect to the Philips. Lastly, the operating system..... I have wanted to put a large percussion adjustment instrument through this thing on several occasions. It is hard-wired into a home network which it only recognises upon initial set-up (which I have done several times). There have been occasions when I am trying to access the on-board menu but all it does is blink it's red light at me, so I unplug the set from the mains...... I have even contemplated going further into credit-card debt to but a Samsung or LG and donating this thing to charity, but there's no charity that I hate that much. If you have got to this point, I want to thank you for allowing me to get this frustration off my chest and I would advise you to look elsewhere on this site for a better piece of equipment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst. Check reviews on phillips and elsewhere I purely bought this for ambilight, but even that, it’s most positive feature is flawed. As for the picture, it’s atrocious, motion handling is absolutely shocking, it’s like going back in time to 1999 and I’m no over exaggerating check the reviews on phillips. The works part of this tv is its usability, the software and menu system is absolutely terrible. Got to to click through about 5 menu items (which takes up the whole screen) just to change brightness or the ambilight brightness, it’s so cumbersome, every other tv has this as a single button to access the picture settings. The tv glitches and lags when switching to a Dolby vision source it’s basically like the processor can’t handle it very well. All I will say is there’s a reason this tv has good promotions on it, for me it will be a gap stop tv just 1-2 year max (hopefully less) until OLED gets cheaper. Also this TV is ridiculously heavy and has a very wide silver bezel (very 2000 like). Honestly I can’t wait to go back to a proper brand like Panasonic, LG, or Samsung. I’d say Panasonic best for picture, Samsung best for usability, and LG somewhere in the middle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Picture Ambilight Rocks! We had need for a new kitchen TV. I thought I was pushing my luck in trying to squeeze a 65” TV past my better half - so when she said we should go for the bigger 70” version I was floored! We had an Ambilight TV many years ago, which we loved, but circumstance meant we’d ‘suffered’ the last 11 years without. If you’ve never tried Ambilight, you’re in for a treat, having the TV’s colours spread out across your wall seems easier on the eyes, and just adds a little to your immersion. We couldn’t justify an OLED screen, though that would have been nice - this mid range model is exceedingly good value, costing just a third of the 50” screen it replaced. Picture quality is very good, as long as you feed it a decent signal, so HD and UHD works best. Sound is beefy enough, as being such a large screen also means it’s somewhat thicker than some - the plus side of which means larger speakers can be incorporated into the frame. While it says it’s capable of Dolby Atmos, we haven’t had the need to try this out. All in all, a decent mid-range large screen TV, with good picture, beefy sound, and affordable - what’s not to like? Oh, and the Newcastle staff were excellent as usual!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full of features.... Ambilight is a game changer I have only got this tv recently.... Easy set up..... Everything works as it should.... My source is a sky q mini box which downgrades signal to main tv in cinema room playing through q box is much sharper at 2160p.......i did buy the Phillips as a bedroom tv so I was aware of signal drop off.......... Love to try this on a main box but sky only allows one per household. The Phillips looks great with the silver bezel...... Going to try with a blu ray dvd..... Will take player from TV room........ I researched all tvs at this price point and only samsung worth it but its a much more budget range of set for the money...... I was also thinking of Phillips oled 65 but that was £1800 and only worth considering if through main box

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best by a country mile. After weeks of research and long sleepless nights and going slightly against your sales advisor, I purchased the Philips 70pus8555 model and myself and family are over the moon with our new telly I also was about to order a sound system for it but on its own the sound is amazing. So anyone out there thinking about this model ! Just get it and if you don't like it I will give you your money back xxx Thanks Tom Paterson Gloucester

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture and love the ambilight I have updated my old 40" 15 year old TV to this model. Probably any new TV would look good compared to what Im used to but I am very impressed with this model. Its easy to set up, easy to use, the picture is superb, and I love the ambilight, I have it on all the time, really adds to experience of what your watching...... This is my first smart TV, and Ive not gone through all the features yet...... I cant imagine any other Tvs being able to do much more, the menus are vast....... (to me anyway)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features, Ambilight benefits and Android Ordered for next day delivery a few weeks ago from the ever helpful team at Richer Sounds. Crackin experience, sharp picture despite not being OLED, sound is exceptional and Ambilight experience is very good. Found Ambilight is very good on Live Concert reruns picking up all the light changes with absolute precision and likewise with movies. It’s the 70” I purchased so it’s quite a size but all mounted with no issues. Android Google set up was simple and is linked to the Google Home App on my iPhone. Very good product and excellent price for such a big TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value, attractive TV but why silver? This is a well-made and easy to use TV with an intuitive menu system. The picture and sound quality are very good and the Ambilight is stunning. My only criticism is that the frame is silver where black would've been much more subtle and less distracting. That aside, I would recommend this TV, it's easy to use and I'm getting used to the colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV, Great Guarantee, Great Service I love my new TV, 70 inch seemed big at the time but it really stands out, i love the lounge lights with the TV, It was a easy DIY job to install the bracket and TV on the wall. 1 very sad point is the plug wire is very short, so be prepared to have an extension wire closeby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Excellent tv for price to feature ratio. Out the box set up wasnt to my liking so have spent hours tweaking and adjusting the settings to something more my taste. I have found the blacks to be a little too dull/grey but i am confident i can adjust to my liking. Ambilight is a great feature and i have added more hue lighting to my room to sync with the tv. I have read reviews elsewhere that the remote and android can be laggy but in my experience i would say both are very responsive and have no issue with either of them. You get a lot of tv for the cost s i am very happy with my purchase.
