Philips delays launch of Dolby Vision TVs in the US to 2017

03 Aug 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

In early 2016, a range of Philips-branded TVs with support for Dolby Vision were announced. The original plan was to release the TVs in the US this month but the TVs have been delayed to 2017, according to a report by HDGuru.

Dolby Vision TVs delayed

LG and Vizio have already launched TVs with support for the Dolby Vision HDR format but the announced Philips TVs will not be released this year as planned.

- “The only TV series that we showed at CES that won’t be coming to market this is year is the high-end Dolby Vision series. Those won’t be coming to market right now. We’ll now bring those in 2017. There’s lots that’s changed with Dolby Vision,” said Karl Bearnarth, VP of TV sales and marketing for P&F USA to HDGuru.

Philips 69600 USA


The 8600 series was announced in January 2016 and was scheduled to arrive in 55 and 65-inch sizes this month in the US. Besides Dolby Vision, the TVs also boasted 82% coverage of the Rec.2020 color space and local dimming.

The TVs, with a starting price of $1199, surely sounded promising so it is disappointing to see them postponed into 2017. We hope to hear about them again at CES 2017 in January.
