The start of the year means CES, which means a lot more high-tech products. Many manufacturers have been showing off their latest TVs, peripherals, or other controllers since the start of the week. Today, the Dutch giant Philips presents a Philips Hue app in partnership with Signify.

A $129.99 app to sync lights to your television

Smart lights that can be placed under your TV and sync with series or movies have not been on the market for quite some time. Philips Hue products are a great example of this. Today is the presentation of a collaboration between Signify, the owner and operator of Philips Hue.

The Philips Hue SyncTV TV app, which is dedicated to Samsung QLED 2022 and Q60 TVs, is available today for a modest price of $129.99. This application can be viewed as a software edition of the Philips Hue Play HDMI Sync Box that is available for approximately $250.

Philips claims that the app can be used with different TV apps. There will also be options to adjust intensity, brightness, and auto-start. We also learn that the app will work with all image formats and TV content.

This application, which is quite expensive, only covers the software part of the Philips Hue ecosystem. For installing lights behind your TV, the Philips Hue Play light strips and the Hue Play bar are must-haves in terms of peripherals.

Signify and Philips have not yet confirmed whether the app will be available on other TVs than Samsung’s. However, that’s all we can hope to despite the fact other manufacturers are doing it in the marketplace.
