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 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective! I bought two of this model in May 2020 and both TVs have had issues with the sound and picture sync to the point that the main board on both TVs is being replaced as an attempted to solve the problem. It’s long winded so save yourself time by buying a different model!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BLUETOOTH Im having trouble matching my headphones to my tv. I bought this tv for this feature as I live in a flat and dont want to annoy my neighbours with loud noise. I also find the sound a bit tricky as music is very loud on movies etc but then the dialogue goes soft. Picture quality is fantastic and hopefully in time will be able to over come other issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sized picture for our lounge I bought this tv in June this year as my last TV was 14 years old and I wanted a smart TV. Very happy with 43 inch size. great picture and good reception. Still finding my way around all that it will do, but so far very pleased. Excellent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some good qualities, lacking in areas though I’ve had this tv for over a month now, some nice features but lacking in some modern everyday ones. 1 - No apple AirPlay 2 - No direct access to sleep timer (if streaming Netflix etc) from the remote, without closing programme to access main menu 3 - stand is fixed and does not offer any swivel 4 - Bluetooth can’t connect to Bose QC35

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic picture, wifi can be a bit hit and miss I purchased this TV as I wanted to make use of the built-in Chromecast function. Upon moving into my new property, for which the TV was purchased, I realised that I had no need for an aerial as I only watch on-demand content. Having an Android TV for this is great as I could install all of my apps, most of which were already preinstalled. The wifi has dropped out once, but the built-in ethernet resolved that. It took a few reboots to kick in. The mobile app is handy, but you can't increase the volume. Some Google apps, NEST, no longer work (due to an issue by Google). The support of multiple accounts could be better (it sort of supports it, but you have to keep removing and adding them). This is due to Google not really building on Android TV. The sound quality lets it down, as it's quiet, but i'm really impressed. The only real worry is how long Google will support Android TV for, but so far i'm loving it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% value for the money It's no surprise Sony are no.1 because this smart 55" Tv is my best buy for quite a long time. It's like being in the same room with whatever is on Tv. Beautiful sharp features and great sound quality as no need to put my soundbar on this Tv which is a bonus

Date published: 2020-08-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exellent Upscale engine I bought this TV as it up scales 1080p content superbly. 4k content is very limited so 90% of the time you will be watching 1080p HD content only. If you buy other brands as I did before I saw this model, they don’t upscale properly. Consequence was that my old 1080 HD tv had a better picture than the new ones which were 4k. Think of it this way if the 4k tv was to display the 1080 picture as it really is, it would be a small picture in the middle of the screen, as the 4k is 4 times the size. 4k TV's have to expand the picture and fill in the pixels. It does not have in the content. The qaulity of the picture will be down to the upscaling engine employed on the set you buy. I sent back 3 TV's as the upscaling was awful and was worse than my old tv I was outing. However the Sony Bravi has an AI upscaling engine which is first class. I highly recommend these sets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Picture This is my third Sony Bravia and the best yet. The other two purchased are still functioning excellently and transferred to dining area and a bedroom.but we wanted a larger tv for the living room.Overall size 50 inch wide x 25 inch and ultra thin.Very pleased with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Visuals, Poor Remote Control The clarity of the picture and vibrancy of the colours are great. However the remote control is poor. 1. It feels cheap and the buttons are fiddly. 2. I cannot see a function to rewind/forward terrestrial telly. 3.The subtitles function should be a straight on/off button (it isn't). Plus if you change channels the subtitles function turns off. Why? I therefore watch the telly via my bt box purely because the functionality of the remote control is much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant TV with great features and good price, Had this for a few weeks now. The clarity compared to my old TV (Samsung HD) is a league apart. Fast navigation of menu and loaded with features. Having android built in will make sure it will have the latest streaming services, as my old TV didn't have Disney+.

Date published: 2020-08-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Picture I've had Sony TV's before and the picture quality is always superb. Screen is slim and setup was fairly straight forward. I wanted an easy to use Smart TV but found that most Apps needed a google account to access and/or asked for a subscription. Of all the Apps on the TV I probably access only 3. Needs to be more user friendly. I still like Sony but have also a Panasonic Smart TV which is far easier to navigate. Also couldn't find a Sony TV with a chrome frame, most were in black only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant TV I bought this TV over a month ago and it's very good. Great picture quality and no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super TV This is by far the best TV we have bought to date, so easy to set up and use, all functions on the smart TV are also easy to use and the picture is spot on.
Date published: 2020-08-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased overall, but no Apple mirroring After a few weeks getting used to the differences between our 10 year old Sony. For example why change the number of the hdmi port that had ARC - it took a while to realise when our Sony sound system didn’t work, when I’d plugged the lead into the same numbered port as the old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture quality Easy to set up can’t fault the quality of picture, very pleased as always when buying Sony.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Picture and sound I bought this television a month ago and I 'm happy with the sound, picture and easy of use. The voice search/control is a nice feature, also the android TV is a great upgrade to my old Sony Bravia TV software would recommend buying this 43" television if you want a decent 4k for a smaller room.
