Does anybody know if the TV comes with power cable having both an EU plug and a UK plug?

Or where I could get a UK plug?

The one I'm buying looks to be sourced from the EU, hence the question.

Lol, I am sure you can pop a plug on of your choosing. Have you never wired a plug before?

You can get a plug from any hardware shop/eclectrical factors etc.

Check the TV's voltage though to ensure its suitable for UK.

I've been wiring plugs since I was 12 years old, LOL.

I would rather have the proper cable though, for obvious reasons.

If all else fails I'll just connect the two pin to an adapter, of which I have plenty.

You asked where you could get a UK plug hence the confusion, as if you hadn't wired a plug this would be a question that could be be possible.

The cable is captive in the telly I believe, so you'll just need to change the plug, or yes use an adaptor.

Check voltage.

Seems to be a separate part, from the quick guide.

I think Philips will be sending me one, fingers crossed. Although I have found a very robust adaptor left behind by my daughter's Swedish ex-boyfriend, which will suffice, will find out on Thursday.

What's your initial thoughts on the tv ?
I only just noticed that I posted in the wrong place, as it's the 936 that I have, apologies.

That said, I am more than impressed, especially as I got it new in the box for under £1000.

I've had a good tweaking session of the settings, based on the AV Forums YouTube recommendations, added my spare magic keyboard via USB, paired my iPhone and iPad, failed to pair my knock-off earbuds and iMac, for the latter I'm waiting on a HDMI to Thunderbolt adaptor, tested a few UHD and Dolby Vision/Atmos productions. Overall I actually like the Ambilight, especially for evening viewing - 'A Perfect Planet', described as Ultra HD is an excellent test case for [on iPlayer], lots more here : Can I watch programmes in Ultra HD on my connected TV? | iPlayer help.

Next I'll be looking at some 4K stuff on Apple TV+.

Luckily it's the weekend and I can have a good binge fest.

How did you manage to get it so cheap?
