Hue Sync and Hue Bridge Required
The Philips Hue Play gradient lightstrip requires the Philips Hue Play HDMI sync box, Hue Sync mobile app, and a Hue Bridge. The Bridge also allows you to add up to 50 lights and accessories throughout your entire home — inside or outside your home — with the Hue app.
This was my second purchase of the gradient lightstrip. I have the 55 inch version and recently purchased a 65 inch tv, it was a no brainer to get the lights to go along with it. When used with the sync box it adds a whole new level of immersion to movies and games that cant be beat. Pricey but i definitelt recommend for the avid home theater enthusiasts.
This purchase was one of my best and worst decision at the same time. I don’t regret buying it, mind you, it’s just that I’m now addicted and buying other lighting bulbs/fixtures that I don’t need! Can’t watch movies the old way again. I took a star off due to the price - over $500 for the setup to sync with your tv.
My photos shows 2 play bars to highlight the bottom of the screen.
I upgraded my two Hue Play bars for the 65" gradient strip and have been pleasantly surprised so far. It definitely gives off more light and more accurate to what's on-screen when synced with the Hue Play. My only complaint is the light strip seems fragile considering theres about a 4"-5" section where the lights are discolored. I'm not sure if this was a defect or this section bent while mounting behind my tv, but it's a minor complaint that doesn't effect the overall quality of the lights.
This is probably the best hue light I’ve gotten. It has a SLIGHT delay, but compared to the setup I had before with my Sync box this is amazing. If you’re worried about sizing, I got the 65” model for my 60” TV and it’s perfect (55” hue was too small)
Was skeptical, but worth it. Installed on a 75in tv by myself rather easily in 3-5 minutes and was all set. The sticky pads are a pain to remove so I recommend lining them up before placing them. This light strip adds vibrancy to any living space.

I finally got these lights and it absolutely completes my set up. Much better to be able to control multiple sections and looks awesome for games and movies. Picture doesnt do justice. Much higher quality than other light strip.
A:AnswerDon't run at the edge if it is not going to reach all the way to the bottom of each side. You would run this at a distance from the edge in order to cover three of the four sides of the screen. Therefore, if you measure three sides of your screen and compare to the length designed for the 75" screen (120" length) you'll discover you would likely install at approx 8 inches from the edge on your 85" screen perhaps.
A:AnswerI know one of the features if the 7 color zones. depending on what is showing on the TV, the strip can show 7 different colors at once to match whats is on the screen. This light strip is more for people who have the Philip Hue sync box already.
A:AnswerYou can, but it will only appear in app as ONE solid color/light. Philips has stated they are looking into future app and firmware updates that will allow us to control the different color zones of the strip independently.
A:AnswerNot sure yet, I have PS5 - but the HDMI Sync box that I bought directly from Phillips was defective. I have read that the gradient lights do work with new consoles, however are not yet compatible with HDMI 2.1 therefore you will not be able to maximize 4K resolutions @ 120Hz. I have the gradient lights installed now but just synced to the Hue app and it looks amazing - waiting for a new sync box to be able to test the immersion features. Best Buy has been great, Phillips/Signify the parent company has not. That’s all I’ll say for now - will update once I get a working Hue Sync box.
A:AnswerUnfortunately that’s exactly what will happen. People have tried to get the next size up (usually to make up for the fact that it doesn’t cover the bottom side) and the colors end up being ever so slightly but sufficiently noticeably misaligned. I suggest wait until you’ve commit to upgrading your tv, otherwise go ahead and get a 65 for now if you think you can sell it when you do decide to upgrade. Hope this helps!
A:AnswerIt will work as a standard lightstrip when connected to only a hue bridge. But if you want the gradation effect synced with your tv you need the sync hue play box which is another 230.00 dollars. You can also use the hue sync pc app if you are using it around a computer monitor. I mean it’s incredible when you have both... but is a 500 dollar investment.
