Philips Hue Sync HDMI Box - add ambilight to your TV £229 at Philips Online Shop UK

Posted 27th Nov 2019
This won't necessarily go hot for price (it's at RRP so not a money off deal) and it's a little niche.

If you have a Hue Bridge and any Hue lights (such as Hue light strips or Hue Play lights) behind or next to your TV, you can now add this nifty box of tricks to your HDMI chain and it will synchronise the pictures on screen with the Hue lights, effectively making your TV the same as an Ambilight one.

It seemingly works with any video source via HDMI, so game consoles, Blu-ray players, Sky boxes, Apple TV boxes, Amazon Fire, Roku, etc.

This was meant to be released in the UK in January 2020 but it looks like Philips have decided to get them out before Christmas. They've been on sale in the USA for a few months now and are getting rave reviews.
