Philips has unveiled the Philips 32PFL9604 and the 37PFL9604 LCD TVs.
Both models will be released in June and will be priced at around £999 and £1,299 respectively.
The two new models from Philips feature Philips' 2009 Perfect Pixel HD engine processing chip, which Philips claims improves the TVs' contrast ratios and overall picture quality.

The 32in and 37in Philips TVs also boast Ambilight technology. This adjusts the picture's brightness to best suit the room in which the TV is being watched, and Which? tests have shown that the feature is an effective energy saving tool.
Each set has five HDMI sockets and DNLA certified Wi-Fi and wired connectivity, to allow you to connect to the internet and other networks throughout the home.
Internet on TV
Connections to other networks will allow you to view photos or play back music through your TV, while the internet connection will allow you to use the Net TV option - a widget based platform that provides the owner with access to dedicated news and weather sites through the TV.
Michael Briggs, Which? TV expert, said: 'The most interesting feature of these TVs is the Wi-Fi capability. We're gradually seeing more and more internet capable TVs and it will be interesting to see how these models fare against their Ethernet counterparts.'
