    Philips 65pfl9708s 4K YouTube Videos in 4K?

    Hi

    Does the YouTube app in the Philips 65pfl9708s support playback of 4K youtube videos in 4K?


    In the PC app, I can adjust the options of the movie by selecting 2160 Quality.

    Example movie:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHOpb2fS-cM

    I can't seem to find out how to select video quality in the TV app.


    Please advice,
    best Regards

    Karl

    Hi Karl,

    the youtube App does not support 4k yet.
    We did not get any hints from Youtube/Google when this will be implemented.

    Besides that the 9708S does not have HEVC build in. So you would need a settop box or other 3rd party Devices, supporting HEVC-Codec.

    Hello Thomas,

    I also have this UHD TV 65PFL9708S. Is there any way to have access to UHD content on this "UHD" TV ?
    I know that nowadays there are not a lot of 4K native sources, but any time a company offer such content (Netflix, Youtube..) this "UHD" TV is unable to access it..
    Moreover, I'm still waiting for the hdmi 2.0 upgrade that was promised at the IFA 2013. I paid almost 4,000€ for this TV and I'm very disappointed by the Philips support and updates that never come. This "state-of-the-art" TV is not perfect at all : this is not compatible at all with UltraHD standard (not good for a UHD tv...), the TV menus and smart TV is still veeery slow, and there are so many crashes that I need to restart and unplugged my TV at least once a day...
    So when will Philips decide to offer a real upgrade for this premium UHD TV ?

    Hi,

    this is something you must discuss with your local service.
