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 70 inch Philips TV, colour from the picture is cast into the room – in real time.

Gaming made better

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 70PUS8556 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, the Philips 70PUS8556 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Philips ambilight I have upgraded my old am I light to a new one and the ambilight is stunning. The only draw back is the sound is not great and although it’s UHD it will not view in it. I did phone Philips customer service and a guy took down my details and said he would call me back but never did - which is disappointing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and the Ambilight feature is superb. I purchased this TV a couple of weeks ago to replace a damaged LG. Wow am I surprised. I usually always go for LG but decided to take a risk on this TV and I’m very glad I did. The picture is outstanding and the Ambilight feature adds such a great ambiance to my living room. The remote control is very functional with a keyboard on the back. How much I will use this I don’t know but it’s a great feature to have should you need it. Would certainly make me reconsider my love for LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Philips TV I have looked at Philips Ambilight TVs previously and never went for them for various reasons. I have been very impressed with this one so far. I will say though, that the picture takes some adjusting to get it right, if you are interested in getting the colours etc. accurate. 4k and HDR content has great detail. Most HD channels are upscaled well, however the poorer 'HD' channels show some loss of detail which is more noticeable on a TV of this size. It is still very good though, so don't let that put you off. The interface is quite intuitive and Android TV is pretty good with a huge selection of apps available, as well as the ability to load on your own TV software if required. The remote is excellent. A good build quality and the QWERTY keyboard on the rear is very handy with browsing and password entry etc. The real standout feature is obviously the 3-side Ambilight which really does add a new dimension to TV viewing. So far this TV has lived up to expectations.
