Sony’s ultimate processing, maximises OLED’s full potential, with the Sony BRAVIA KE-65A8BU.

BRAVIA OLED panel for the finest picture around
Backlighting technology is a thing of the past with OLED. Instead of using various arrays of LEDs to light an LCD display, OLED uses over eight million self-illuminating pixels for sensational image quality. With self-illuminating pixels, you get outstanding contrast. Blacks are far deeper than LED displays and corresponding whites much brighter. For the ultimate in realism, OLED is where it’s at.

X1 Ultimate with Pixel Contrast Booster maximises the potential of OLED
To extract the maximum potential for the OLED panel, this Sony 65 inch TV uses Sony’s most powerful processor – X1 Ultimate. This processor intelligently enhances the brightness of hundreds of different picture elements, giving incredibly realistic and detailed images. Pixel Contrast Booster maximises the potential of each pixel, getting the most lifelike and vibrant colour.

The smoothest images with X-Motion Clarity
Sony’s X-Motion Clarity is Sony’s flagship motion processor and takes OLED to the next level. By controlling the backlighting with greater precision this Sony 65” 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.

Sharpen up the sound with Acoustic Surface Audio
Sony’s unique Acoustic Surface Audio speaker system enhances the sync between what you see and what you hear. By placing two, sound-positioning speakers at the back of the TV, the sound precisely tracks the image. Independent amp control ensures absolute precision of sound, making the audio more life-like than with conventional TV speaker systems.

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 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 soundbar
If you’re placing your TV on a cabinet or table, low-profile feet give it a sleek, ground-hugging appearance. Adding a soundbar would usually obstruct the image, which is why this Sony features rotating feet that raise the TV’s height, giving the best of all worlds – with or without a soundbar.

Sleek, Sony style
With its slim, black bezel, this Sony TV looks every bit as sleek and timeless as you’d expect from a BRAVIA design. The elegant legs not only provide adjustable support but also have handy cable management built-in.

See OLED at its best, with the Sony BRAVIA KE-65A8BU.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product, sound selection output questionable Picture quality is great. But I do not hear any difference in sound output from any of the selections I make, it is all the same to me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV Had this a few weeks now and still watching HD demos just to revel in the clarity. Wanted to get rid of the need for additional sound systems and this has done that. Not cheap but hopeful this will last many years. Controller could be more ergonomic but did pair with my virgin box after a few turn off and on sessions. Takes two to mount and remove fron packaging safely . Overall very happy .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All good but with 1 annoying feature I am generally incredibly happy with the TV. All the things you'd want are great; Picture quality is superb and black response is better than my old plasma set (something I was specifically looking for over the LED LCD I owned in between these 2 sets). But there is a niggle and an annoyance. The niggle is that there is a larger band of black at the bottom of the TV than the sides and top (due to the TV frame I think); I am splitting hairs somewhat here but LG have managed to get their equivalent TV 'balanced' in this respect. -1 to design The annoyance is the Settings menu which informs you that amending settings may increase power consumption. The message needs acknowledging EVERY SINGLE TIME you go into the Settings and is just painful. Sony need to remove or amend this - so annoying!! -1 to Ease of Use I don't use the TV sound so the rating is based on the options available rather than practical use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good tv but held back by a couple of issues This is a great tv, could be fantastic but for a couple of things. Firstly, youview is great but not integrated to the tv features, so for example can’t record or even pause live tv even when usb recording is set up, so need to use native TV guide if this is required or a separate PVR. I have therefore installed a Freeview pvr which is well integrated using the Sony remote, but I shouldn’t have to, and of course this means missing out on youview and resorting to Freeview. Android tv is ok but I fear it won’t stay up to date. Later models use Google tv, I would have thought it would make sense for Sony to keep all tvs on the latest platform to simplify things. I’m very pleased with the sound and don’t feel I need to use my Sonos play bar with this tv.
