Are you planning on using these for ambiant lighting behind your tv and/or using these lights to their full advantage? If so, yes. Also, if you’re hoping to use these to match the colors on your television for a more immersive environment, the hue sync app is required. This app is only available on Windows and Mac which means you’ll have to play a movie on your computer that is connected to your TV for this to work. I didn’t know this when I purchased the lights. Hope this helps.
