Having Your Own Home Theatre Has Never Been Easier

Leading consumer electronics company, Philips has just launched an exciting new TV concept – a TV set with DVD player built-in. Now having your own home theatre has never been easier.

This innovative product – the first to the market in New Zealand- means that people can have access to both leading TV and DVD technology at an affordable price. What’s more it’s incredibly easy to use. All you have to do is insert the DVD disc into the draw at the bottom right hand corner of the television set . . . and just press play.

Group Product Manager Philips Consumer Electronics, Scott Wright says the new Philips TV with DVD built-in combines the best features of DVD entertainment with that of a great television.

“At the push of a button, people will be able to enjoy the total home theatre experience, including fabulous picture and sound quality, plus all the “added extras” that interactive DVD offers,” Scott Wright says. “One remote works both the television and DVD features, so there’s no fumbling around with different controls!”

For the technology-conscious, the Philips TV with DVD built-in is a combination of a 50Hz television with Philips Real Flat screen technology and a DVD player that will also play music CDs. It also caters for CD-R and CD-RW formats.

“DVD is the future of home entertainment and it is growing at a huge rate overseas and is really starting to take off here as well. The real benefit of DVD is it lets you watch and experience movies at home the way they are meant to be seen. It will also suit the lifestyle of the modern family looking for quality entertainment that’s easy and cost-effective - the product will retail for around $2,700 - and it looks so good as well!”

This latest Philips innovation is ready for operation straight out of the box. There is no need to mess around with cables, worry about speaker placements or allocate additional space for the DVD component player.

“It really is home theatre made easy.”
