TV great but some built in apps don’t work

TV looks great (turned on or off), sound is good and the ambilight feature is really really cool too. Only downside is that the UK smart tv apps (BBC itv and channel 4) and the built in chromecast often don’t work, which is a pain in the neck. Netflix works fine. Have tried resetting the tv, turning it on and off, and other suggested fixes online which either don’t work or only work for a short while. Thankfully I already had a Now TV stick and Chromecast so I can still watch tv (I hardly ever watch broadcast tv) and once you get a show to play, it looks and sounds great, but this isn’t what you’d expect from a brand new smart tv.

Great buy

Just wow. Love the tv. Love the ambient lighting. Makes the room glow. So glad I opted for Phillips. Pure value for the price paid. Very happy to recommend to all my friends. Might even get one for the bedroom!!

A good value for money tv. The user manual would be useful rather than having to go on line for it

Fantastic tv, great sound and stunning picture, solidly built

Absolutely brilliant tv. I bought during lockdown and was nervous to buy without seeing the picture in a showroom but I can honestly say I couldn’t be happier with it. Not used the smart features yet as we have virgin media tv but everything else we have used is spot on. The tv is solidly built and it’s nice to find a silver tv nowadays they seem to all be black. The cable tidy at the back is lovely as it hides unsightly cables and also love the stand as it safely swivels without having to move the whole unit. The picture quality is incredible, almost better than real life haha! I even put on a few old DVD’s and they were close to full HD too I was very impressed. The fact that it has 4 hdmi slots was a huge selling point for me, and if you turn a component on it automatically detects and changes source without having to do it manually by remote. The sound is absolutely perfect for my needs, maybe if I was a film geek I’d notice the difference without a sound bar but I can honestly say the sound is the best I’ve had in any tv I’ve owned and I’m more than delighted with it. My son plays on his Nintendo switch and remarked to me how good it looks and there is actually a ready made ‘gaming’ picture setting if any gamers wanted to easily get the best experience. Sport wise, I’ll have to wait until my husband gets home from sea as it’s a sports free house when he’s not home!! I hadn’t bought the TV due to the ambilight features, it was just a happy addition, although my tv is placed in the corner so it doesn’t work to its full potential and looks nicer with the ‘living room’ glow in my case, but placed on a wall I think it would be fantastic plus It’s so easy to switch on and off with the direct button on the remote. AO had priced this cheaper than anywhere else and the delivery was second to none with a 4 hour time slot and continued live tracking so you don’t need to stay in all day. All in all a brilliant tv that you won’t regret buying!!

What a beauty!

I have to say I normally only buy Sony TV's, but this is exceptional!!! Picture quality, build and the ambilight is absolutely amazing. It actually makes the whole experience of watching a film so much more....wish I bought it sooner. A brilliant TV for the money and the ambilight is a dream.
