Hi madj71,

Officially this model will go on sale in the UK on the 15th of August. But to be safe, I would say end of August....

Regards,
JuAn

Thank you Juan!

I am looking forward to getting one! Any idea of price?

Also it seems that there will be 4 different models: D, K, M and T. What do those letters mean?
Thanks again. Rgds.

Hi,

K, M, T and H describe the tuner which are integrated: K = DVBS(2), T = DVB-T2...

Price in Germany is around 2400€...

Avoid by all costs the models ending in D. They contain only an mpeg2 tuner, not an mpeg4 one. H means mpeg2/mpeg4.

K, M, T, H and now D? How many models are there and what is the best one then?
A bit confused with the tuner specifications so if someone could explain the differences, that'd be very appreciated.

Also, I have finally managed to speak to someone at Philips who told me that this tv won't be available before mid-September in the UK.

T= DVB-T2 Tuner (UK only)
H= DVB-T, DVB-C Tuner
D= DVB-T Tuner

Thank you all.
I have now seen that Philips have added info on the website:
http://www.philips.co.uk/c/televisions/cinema-219-gold-series-127-cm-50-inch-ultra-wide-screen-easy-3d-50pfl7956t_12/prd/

I hope it will hit the shops soon and that the price will be reasonable...

It seems that the tv is now on sale in the UK: 2099

I don't understand why it is cheaper on the Continent: €1999. That's about 1750. Philips please sort it out so I can order one now !
