Enjoy smarter TV and a super-smooth picture, with the Sony BRAVIA KD-55XH8196BU.

X1 Processor at its heart for powerful realism
With Sony’s X1 processor at its heart, this Sony 55 inch TV delivers the very best from 4K HDR images. The processor enhances all aspects of the image, including colour, contrast and clarity, to give optimised depth and realism. Working with the TRILUMINOS display, colours are natural and authentic, giving you a feeling of ‘being there’.

Smooth picture, with Motionflow XR400
Sony’s Motionflow XR400Hz tech keeps motion smooth, without looking artificial. Getting the perfect balance between blur-free images and natural movement, Motionflow XR400 remains true to the director’s intention.

HDR support, including Dolby Vision
HDR maximises picture quality, bringing detail to the darkest areas of the picture as well as making the overall image look more life-like than ever. As well as HDR10 and HLG formats, this Sony is also compatible with Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Very much an industry standard, Dolby Vision continually adjusts the picture for the most remarkable realism.

Smart Android TV
Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy. The Android platform brings more apps than any other smart TV platform, meaning you’ve got the widest choice of smart TV possible.

Voice control your TV
Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony’s compatible, too. Apple AirPlay and Homekit compatibility makes it possible to integrate with your Apple system. Support for Amazon Alexa devices also means you can voice control via your existing Alexa device.

Crisp, Sony style
Featuring a super-slim, aluminium-look bezel, this Sony TV hides it’s bulk well and has the classic style you’d expect from a BRAVIA design. The matching legs not only provide a stable support but also compliment the design with their striking premium blade design and handy cable management built-in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony XH81 Purchased 2 weeks ago as a replacement for an older Sony T.V. Excellent picture quality and features. I did find I had to adjust down the colour intensity from the factory pre-set, in order to get a more life like picture, but that was straight forward in the settings control. Overall, very pleased, as with all my Sony purchases.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not all features available I’d be really happy with this tv if all features were available. I bought this Sony Bravia to replace the Sony Bravia I had because it’s been a brilliant tv. But it hasn’t got a sound mode so you’re stuck with the sound that it’s programmed with. Some channels sound quite tinny. Other than that a good tv
