Enjoy smooth motion and rich colour on a bigger screen, with the Sony Bravia KD-65XG8196.

Superb colour from Triluminos display with 4K X-Reality Pro

Sony’s Triluminos screens display a full palette of colours in truly life-like form. Every hue and shade is richly and accurately recreated. Thanks to Sony's 4K X-Reality PRO technology, standard images from TV and other sources are taken as close to UHD 4K resolution as possible, for stunning clarity.

HDR support
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. With HDR10 and HLG formats covered, this Sony 65” TV is compatible with a wide range of HDR movies, games and TV.

The smoothest motion with Motionflow XR 400Hz
Fitted with Sony’s Motionflow XR 400Hz, the Sony KD-65XG8196 provides super-smooth motion, that's both crisp and steady. Whether you're watching a fast-moving action movie or sports event, this Sony 65 inch TV remains smooth and steady.

Android Oreo TV
Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy. The Oreo version makes searching for content easier as well as adding further customisation options and app editing.

Control your TV with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant
Connect up your Amazon Alexia device and you get access to wide range of voice control options. Alter the volume, change the channel or input and more – all just by asking Alexa. Alternatively, connect a Google Home and use the Google Assistant to control the Android menu and find your favourites.

Make TV easy, with YouView
YouView is a popular innovation that brings together live and on demand TV in an effortless, intuitive way. The simple menu page lets you easily find live or catch-up programmes, without having to open separate apps.

Sleek design
Sporting a super-slim bezel and a smooth design, the KD65XG8196 looks every bit the quality product you’d expect from Sony. Neat details include the minimalist aluminium feet with built-in cable tidy – ensuring the Sony’s style is kept as clean as possible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sony has become less than average ! I have bought this over a year ago and since then I've been waiting for an update where the light sensor actually works and doesn't break my eyes in the night ( even with the brightness manually selected to a minimum ), where as in a bright day ... it's okish. colours suck, they are faded. The CPU barely keeps up with the Android software because they chose the minimum spec. The minimum time to choose for the TV to sleep is 4 hours ... WiFi speed is average, because the storage write speed can't keep up with the speed. The Ui is sluggish because of the poor CPU performance ... I would not buy a Sony product ever again !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clunky and a remote with a lag from button press Screen image is really good with great definition. However the engine that supports everything is clunky, the remote is awful in its layout as the info button is hidden away etc. There is also a lengthy delay from pressing some of (but not all) the buttons on the remote to the TV auctioning the command. Such a shame as the TV would be considerably better had the aforementioned annoying aspects not been present. 6.5/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent tv we bought this nearly a year ago. Very pleased with picture and sound quality. we are pleased with tv in every way

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good all round TV Bought about a month ago, not disappointed with it but it could be better. Slightly slow to respond. took a while to work out the setting for the colour/contrast etc. was expecting a bit better from Sony as this is classed as a mid range but not much better than my last low-end LG tv. Android TV is good and worth it for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sony A brilliant TV bought as lockdown started Best decision ever to purchase this in time to enjoy all the live streaming of theatre productions, opera, NETFLIX, movies via Prime Video, Sport in addition to all favourite TV channels!
Date published: 2020-09-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV The TV is really easy to use and set up. Downloading and using apps in the google play store is very quick and easy. The picture quality is great as expected with Sony. YouView is good if you want to control live TV. Android system is really great.
