Philips' 2015 Ultra HD TVs

You have access to the Google Play Store with apps such as Netflix and YouTube. Moreover, Google Cast (the system used in Chromecast) is integrated, allowing you to push content from your phone or tablet onto the big living room screen – just like the Chromecast.

The new TV ranges are called 6400, 7100 and 7600 and will be available in sizes from 40 up to 65 inches. The two 7 series TVs also come with Philips’ Ambilight system that will illuminate the wall on either 2 or 3 sides, depending on what TV you buy. Ambilight can also integrate with the Philips Hue lighting system.

The TVs can receive 4K signals either through the HDMI 2.0 port or via streaming services. In 2015, Philips has integrated HEVC decoding in all of its Ultra HD TVs. HEVC is required to stream 4K content from streaming services such as Netflix, but Philips has yet to confirm whether 4K from Netflix will be available at launch.

Philips is highlighting some of its advanced picture processing system, including Pixel Precise, Micro Dimming, and Natural Motion. The two 7 series TVs both offer 3D, and 7600 also incorporates a more powerful sound system. If you enjoy recording TV channels, you will also be happy to learn that 7600 has a twin tuner, allowing you to record one show while watching another.

All three models will be available in Europe and Russia in the second quarter of 2015. Later this year, Philips will announce new 8 and 9 series TVs. Prices have not been announced.
