It's back.. But not for long I expect. This TV sold out quite quickly last time it was this price around the start of the month.

2 year guarantee included.

Great detail

Enjoy incredible clarity in everything you see with the Philips 50PUS8204/12 50" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV. With HDR and a resolution four times better than Full HD, you'll get bright colours and sharper images.

It'll upscale your older shows and movies too, letting you rediscover your favourites as you've never seen them before.

Be immersed with Ambilight

From movies to games, get more immersed in your content with Philips Ambilight. Intelligent LEDs around the edges of the TV panel cast the colours on your screen onto the wall behind it and into your room, creating a stunning effect that will make your screen feel bigger and give every show a tailored, real-time light show.

Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos

With Dolby Vision technology, every scene is enhanced for a brilliantly vivid image. Finer details are deeper, skin tones look more natural, and motion appears perfectly smooth - ideal for fast paced sports and movies.

Dolby Atmos gives your audio a boost too, for a full sensory experience that captures all the original richness of your content. Everything will look and sound more real than ever.

Convenience at your fingertips

Say goodbye to endless scrolling and use your voice to control your TV. With the in-built Google Assistant, whether you search for a movie on Netflix or find an app in the Play Store, all you need to do is ask. You can even control other Google Assistant compatible devices around your home, like smart light bulbs or the thermostat without even needing to get up.

With the Google Play store and the Philips App Gallery, there's loads of content for you to explore. Get movies, boxsets, music, apps, games, and more all directly to your TV – there's something to keep everyone happy.

Only bbc iplayer on these, the manual does say they have freeview play, witch includes all the catchups, but it doesnt, i phoned up philips and some guy said its being added to the tv, but if its true iv no idea. You can cast them from your phone tho to the tv.

i have, how exactly would you like me to check it for you, what kind of angle?
Worth grabbing or waiting for the Boxing Day / jan sales?
Can't you download the missing apps from play store, if it's running Android TV?

I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Viewing angle not great, if you are watching head on it’s awesome. As soon as you go off centre a bit, colours fade. I was a bit disappointed how little you have to move for the quality to fade actually.
Luckily, it’s on a wall mainly used for gaming so doesn’t really bother us too much as they sit in front of it.
Cannot seem to pay with paypal, any ideas?
Asked online chat but they are clearly not bothered. As I dont carry cards around with me when Im at work I wont be able to purchase. Judging by the viewing angles and lack of catch up content maybe Ive done myself a favour.

Which would you say is better and why.. You seem informed. & I've herd this before models in the same model code have different attributes. Can you help? 50vs 55. Is it worth 100 quid for 5inches?

Many thanks either way & Have a great day people.

55 is an IPS panel. The 50 (which I have) is VA. There’s loads of info about the two available - you need to decide what’s best for you.

Hi, in all honesty i cant tell the difference between the two with how i use both, however, IPS if you want best viewing angles, Va if you want the best blacks, but then some say VA has worse motion and judder, i can honestly say for ME the only difference is 5", but if you are thinking then be quick and buy one now at this price, seriously,

Lots of recent updates. Haven't seen freview play added. Happy to be proved wrong. TV has a very good picture. Hoping to find a AV forum with info on fine tuning as the menu for setup is comprehensive. My TV is in the corner of lounge and viewing (angle) is fine at the extremes when viewing from my sofa.

You are going to have to update, then go into settings and reset tv, then it will all be there, iv just done mine about 1h ago,
I see this has an S2 tuner, this TV does have freesat software doesnt it?

Say if I wanted it for movement - frame rate judder / motion in fast moving films... etc... and was not concerned ATT ALL about viewing angles because it's for my bedroom and only I will be watching it, smack bang in the centre, which would you say?

Again id be so grateful for help.

(I did quickly Google as you suggested but the top 5 listings are massive reports)

I just want to to know this one fact or perhaps why did YOU choose va, over IPs

I chose this VA panel for the blacks and for gaming. Colours are rich in the correct setting. Haven’t noticed any juddering and am happy with the picture quality.
I just would not use this in a lounge for a main TV - where people view from different angles.
Waiting for the 50pus7334 to drop below to £400 or below

Why risk potential lags ect when this is this price, 3gb of ram in this.
After trying to order via card, buy now pay later and paypal on both IE and Chrome I was ready to give up trying... Tried on my android phone and it worked first time using paypal credit...

I have both in this model, i play my ps4 on both tvs, and to me both are the same, i cant comment on vewing angles on the VA as im sat right infront, but the IPS on is on the wall so im looking up abit, its perfect, and to me blacks are black. id just buy the size you want.

It comes with iPlayer installed and I installed itv player and My5 from the google play store so yes it does them but I can’t find All 4 (although I can get that app via my Apple TV, it’s just an extra step/button press).

Last month I ordered both the 50 and 55 as both would have fitted but I cancelled the 55 as I didn’t think £100 for the extra 5” was worth it, plus I’d rather have the va panel.
I have the 50" version. Great TV for the money. Good Black's when sitting still and central. I wouldn't have it as a main tv as I'd need the other panel type as you get colour variations when off angle.

Android TV works well as you can install apps from a usb or via Google drive.

Speakers are terrible.

Ambilight is good.

Motion is acceptable.

Used x7 Gripit blue fixings to mount on plasterboard wall. Took 15 mins. Just need to sort sound out now.

You need to sit directly in front and not move your head. I've an Oled C8 so the variations are really obvious to me. When still it's great to be honest. Watched the Mandalorian on it and that looked good.
