Win a £3500 Philips Ambilight Telly


Here at Shiny towers we love big LCD tellies. We just can’t get enough of them. But the truth is that sometimes the picture quality isn’t really all that special. One exception is the Philips range of Ambilight TVs – and we’re not just saying that because the lovely people there have agreed to give us one of their top of the range 42inch models – that’s the 42PF9831D to you – for a competition prize. No sir.

Ambilight really does work. Basically it’s a revolutionary technology which uses backlighting to produce a seemingly more detailed picture at the same time as reducing eye strain. OK you might not need it for watching The Jeremy Kyle show but for evening viewing, especially movies or sport, it really does make a big difference. This super-dooper TV features the latest version of the technology – Ambilight Full Surround – projecting light from all four sides of the set for the ultimate viewing experience.

Other whizzy technologies on board this gorgeous looking 42inch telly include Clear LCD which helps to reduce motion blur and Pixel Plus 3 HD which improves picture sharpness. Of course it goes without saying this model is HD (High Definition) ready making it the perfect partner for your Sky HD box or Blu-Ray DVD player. And it also comes with a digital tuner for receiving a wide range of Freeview channels. So what are you waiting for? Just answer this easy-peasy question and you could win this magnificent 42inch telly in time for Chrimbo.

What does LCD stand for?
A) Liquid Crystal Display
B) Low Cost Dungarees
C) Love Cameron Diaz
