Philips will add Amazon Instant Video to its Android smart TVs this year.
The service will initially be launched in the UK and Germany alongside Philips’ 2016 range, and will offer full HD streaming, as well as the option of UHD streaming on supporting devices.
The company says High Dynamic Range (HDR) will be a central element of the 2016 Philips range, with all sets from the 6000 series upwards offering HDR compatibility, as well as content via HDMI 2.0a, USB or streaming services. The compatibility will be part of a firmware update available after the launch of the 2016 range.
Philips offers two HDR options: HDR Plus and HDR Premium. HDR-compatible TVs with HDR Plus offer a peak brightness of 400 nits, while HDR Premium offers a full 700 nits.
Further additions to the Android TVs include the MyLiveGuard Smart home app, which will be exclusive to Philips for 2016, as well as the Toon Goggles VoD service for children.
