Featuring 8K HDR resolution and an 85 inch screen, TV doesn’t get much better than the Sony BRAVIA KD-85ZH8BU.

8K HDR resolution for 4x the resolution of 4K UHD
Powered by the super-powerful X1 Ultimate processor, this Sony 8K TV delivers the ultimate picture quality – 8K HDR. If you thought 4K was impressive, 8K will blow your mind! With four times the resolution and enhanced brightness, 8K HDR gives the picture texture, depth and detail that’s the closest yet to reality.

X1 Ultimate processor for 8K upscaling
Even if you’re not watching native 8K content, the X1 Ultimate processor uses sophisticated technology to upscale content to as close to true 8K as possible. This means even regular UHD content looks better than ever on this Sony 85 inch TV.

Full array LED backlighting with X-tended Dynamic Range Pro gives stunning realism
The Sony Bravia KD-85ZH8BU uses a full-array LED backlight with ultra-dense structure for bright and even backlighting This ultimate level of brightness control boosts contrast levels, giving deeper blacks, dazzling whites and truer colour between. The TRILUMINOS display with X-tended Dynamic Range Pro offers true-to-life colour for a more natural and believable colour balance.

Cinematic scale – 85 inch screen
Featuring a mighty 85 inch screen, the Bravia KD-85ZH8BU makes the ideal TV for an impressive home cinema system. As big as many projector screens, this 85 inch Sony TV strikes the ideal balance between movie master player when you want and discreet, everyday TV when you don’t.

The smoothest images with X-Motion Clarity
Sony’s X-Motion Clarity is Sony’s flagship motion processor and maximises the advantage of 8K resolution. By controlling the backlighting with greater precision this Sony 85” TV offers enhanced realism, especially with fast-moving sports and action movies.

IMAX Enhanced brings the cinema home
Take the next step-up in picture quality by switching to IMAX Enhanced. Used with IMAX certified 4K HDR content, IMAX Enhanced uses their proprietary digital remastering technology (DMR) to deliver ultra-vivid images. If you want to recreate the look of the movie at the cinema, IMAX Enhanced gets you closer than ever.

Get the best out of Netflix, with Netflix Calibrated Mode
If you’re a movie fan and use Netflix, you’ll love Netflix Calibrated Mode. This setting bypasses many of the TVs processors, giving you a picture that’s much closer to how the filmmaker’s originally intended.

Precise, enveloping sound, with Acoustic Multi-Audio
Sony’s unique Acoustic Multi-Audio speaker system enhances the sync between what you see and what you hear. Combining a sound vibrating frame tweeter with two, front mounted speakers, the TV gets the perfect balance of immersive sound and vocal clarity.

Centre Speaker Mode
For the best sound possible, why not incorporate the Sony into a separate home cinema system. If you make this upgrade, the KD-85ZH8BU gives you the option of using its speaker system as the centre speaker – saving the extra expense and bulk of an additional speaker.

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.

Hands-free voice control your TV
Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. The built-in mic lets you search, hands-free. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony is 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.

Adjustable stand suits your support
If you’re placing your TV on a narrow cabinet, table or other support, you may find the stand that comes with the TV is too wide. Sony have thought of this and provided the KD-85ZH8BU with adjustable feet to get around this problem. If you’re using on a wide support or with a soundbar, the feet are set at each end of the TV. With a narrower support, simply fit the feet towards the TV’s centre for flexible positioning.

Premium quality – right down to the backlit remote control
This stunning TV almost looks as good when off as it does on. Blade Architecture gives the TV a striking design without distracting from the image. The Premium Blade Stand offers stylish support, or you can mount it on the wall. Every detail is perfectly designed – right down to the premium, backlit remote control with built-in microphone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic but one issue for UK - no USB record Fantastic 8K TV but Youview will not record to USB SDD - no USB record possible on the Sony 85" 8K TV in UK. Needs sorting to get the 5 star review it deserves. Update on Android TV needed.
Date published: 2021-02-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from At a whole new level The picture quality on this TV is breathtaking. It replaced an 8k Samsung 85 so the bar was high, the Samsung impressing until it expired 24 months after it was purchased with its 12 Month guarantee. Sony appear to have more faith in their product as it carries a five year guarantee and with seemingly good reason if stunning performance and markedly superior sound are any guide and the back lit handset is a work of art. Really delighted with purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tv I've ever seen. Had my ZH8 85" a few weeks now and I'm very happy. Picture quality is phenomenal and the upscale to 8k via the hdmi port is amazing. Just can't wait for true 8k content to arrive now.
