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 3 out of 5 by from Okay I thought that I would be blown away by this TV after reading some of it's own reviews. I was wrong. The TV is average, the remote cheap compared to my cheap Freeview box. It also can't load lots of apps from the Google play store, not even Freeview Play. I though that this was a smart TV, but I would say it's only half a smart TV. I woild not recommend this TV to anyone. I was given a second hand Samsung TV which is not a smart TV, but using other apps, I made it into a better Smart TV than the Sony.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is it a TV or a Computer? I can see that the days are long gone when you switched on a TV and lo and behold you got 4 channels! The picture quality of the on-demand channels is excellent.(though we get them via Apple TV) We had some difficulty receiving channels via our Freesat as it has SCART connections so we had to get a SCART to HDMI converter. That works well except that the colour is quite dark. Adjusting the colour settings using the handset each time does help slightly. We were pleased to see that the main catch-up channels were installed but for some reason we cannot get All 4 to run as it constantly asks us to install it but without success. The sound is good. The Smart feature is excellent So all in all we are very happy with our purchase and we are gradually getting used to the fact that it has some of the frustrating characteristics of a computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pictures I bought the TV a few weeks ago and am very pleased with it. The set up was a bit lengthy but straightforward and even got it working with Alexa!
