If you're building a 4K TV with HDR, then you have to pick a side: Dolby Vision or HDR10+. Philips is squarely in the former camp. This year, the company is expanding support for the standard, launching a new line of displays that will offer deeper, richer, Dolby-rendered colors. The 69- and 59-series televisions come in a variety of sizes running from 43 inches through 75 inches, and all offer Philips' NetTV smart TV platform. Other bullets on the spec list include macro dimming, wide color gamut, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi and HDMI 2.0a with HDCP 2.2.

At the same time, the company is also pushing out a line of series 57 TVs, which offer a more affordable 4K display without the benefits of HDR. In addition, Philips unveiled a new UHD Blu-ray player (BDP7303) that offers both generic HDR and Dolby Vision, plus upscaling for sources like Netflix, YouTube and Vudu. It'll turn up at some point this summer; no word on how much it'll cost. Philips' new TVs will be available in April, also for as-yet unannounced prices.
