When we reviewed the Philips Hue Play light bar earlier this year, we had some ostensible gripes we just couldn’t ignore: a hefty price tag, computer app issues and no native TV or console support. It was a decent product in need of improvement.

Philips unveils a new range of Wi-Fi bulbs that forgo the Hue Bridge

Back in June, Philips introduced a new range of bulbs that worked without the need for a hub. Although these connect to your phone directly through Bluetooth, they lack direct Internet access if you don't buy the Hue bridge.

Philips introduces new Bluetooth Hue bulbs that work without a hub

Hue products are known for their reliability, ease of use, and integration with third-party solutions. However, they typically require a Zigbee hub to function, which makes a Hue setup quite pricey if you're only looking at buying a couple of bulbs.

The three products together would cost $295 if purchased separately, but with this offer, you'll only have to pay the Echo Show's price for the whole bundle.
