A generous screen, enhanced by Ambilight, makes the Philips 70PUS8556 a cinematic performer.

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 70 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 70PUS8556 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 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.

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).

Enjoy the thrill of a big TV, optimised by Ambilight, with the Philips 70PUS8556.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Phillips TV and Whatfedale Speakers Installed this kit earlier this week and wow, what an awesome upgrade. The 70 inch Phillips Ambilight TV is massive and with new Whatfedale 12.3 front speakers added to existing an Wharfedale 5.1 surround sound system with Denon 2700 Amp the improvement is immense. Listening to and watching high definition videos is a now a real treat. Pavarotti in concert takes on a whole new dimension, as does watching action films like Blackhawk Down. Highly recommended speakers and the TV is superb too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely TV and the ambilight is great After getting faulty unit, this was quickly and efficiently replaced by the Brighton store. The TV itself is great and the black levels are top notch for a non OLED TV. The ambilight really works well and I now notice the lack of it on TVs in other rooms. This is a Android TV so plenty of apps to choose from and hopefully will be updated to Google TV at some point, although no word about that from Phillips as yet. Very helpful staff at the Brighton store as always, especially with dealing with the faulty unit we received first.
