Enjoy smarter TV and a super-smooth picture, with the Sony BRAVIA KE-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.

Get closer to the true image, with the Samsung KE-55XH8196BU.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Telly Bought this telly 6 months back, it's OK, picture quality 8.8/10, because sometimes it's slow with fast moving sport, now and again the apps freeze and I have to unplug it to refresh it, sound is OK but much better with a sound bar

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing. I love Sony products. They are built to the highest standard, and look great. I purchased the Sony XH81 65inch Led TV, it's amazing. The sound and picture are so detailed and crystal clear. There are also plenty of preloaded apps available at your finger tips. The voice controlled remote is really easy to use too. Amazing. Thank you Sony.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Picture & Google Assistant. I was a TV service engineer in the 1980s-1990s, and Sony TVs were the best. Recently, I was in the market for a new TV, so I bought a Sony. Once installed, there was no Bluetooth, I tried several pairs of headphones to no avail. I contacted the seller but, no response was forthcoming. Secondly, when switched on, after a few minutes, Android restarts, which means, restarting the TV, and that process takes minutes, which is infuriating when trying to watch a program. Android does this a few times in succession too! That said it still has a great picture and Google Assistant.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish This TV (KD-49XH8196) is the worst TV I have ever known. Al the problems it suffers are intermittent which makes it even more aggravating. Switch on and off - 2 or three attempts or more.  Connect to set top box - via USB. Has to be done via remote. This is the WORST TV I and many others have ever owned
