”A high-performance OLED TV that’s sized to fit pretty much anywhere.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review (48 inch model tested).

OLED for smaller rooms and desktop gaming

For the first time, this OLED TV features a new, smaller screen. This Sony 42 inch TV makes the technology suitable for smaller rooms, or even as a desktop monitor. Thanks to OLED’s class-leading picture quality, a smaller screen no longer means compromising on picture quality.

4K 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.

Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR just keeps getting better
Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR marries AI to cognitive intelligence for a picture balance that’s best suited to humans rather than just algorithms. The processor analyses every element of the picture to give a sharper image with greater depth and realism. The latest processor features Depth Control and Flexible Colour Contrast Control for even greater depth and colour vibrancy.

XR Triluminos Pro and OLED Contrast Pro for ultimate colour
XR Triluminos Pro combines with XR Colour to deliver the truest and most natural colour. For the highest levels of contrast and detail, XR OLED Contrast Pro adjusts the brightness to give brighter peaks and more detail within darker areas.

The smoothest images with XR OLED Motion and 4K XR Smoothing
Keeping the millions of pixels in check, Sony’s XR OLED Motion technology keeps the action flowing smoothly. Minimising blur, the powerful processing strikes the perfect balance between ultimate detail and the smoothest motion. 4K XR Smoothing reduces picture banding, giving a more lifelike and natural flow to images.

Picture quality as the creator intended – NCM, Dolby Vision and Calman Ready
Compatible with a wide range of technologies, the XR-42A90KU reproduces visuals, just as the creator intended. If you’re a movie fan, you’ll love NCM (Netflix Calibrated Mode). NCM bypasses many of the TV’s processors, giving you a picture that’s much closer to how the filmmaker intended. Calman Ready, this TV is also ideal for those who wish to calibrate their TV to truly professional levels.

Acoustic Surface Audio+ for perfect sound to picture sync
Sony’s unique Acoustic Surface Audio+ speaker system enhances the sync between what you see and what you hear. Vibrating actuators positioned behind the screen pinpoint the sound to the action, heightening the sense of connection and realism. With a centre subwoofer fitted, Acoustic Surface Audio+ gives a bottom-end boost, too.

XR Surround with 3D Surround Upscaling for enveloping sound
Part of the Cognitive Processor XR, XR Surround with 3D Surround Upscaling takes a regular audio signal and creates a virtual surround sound effect – making you feel more immersed in the action.

Works with BRAVIA CAM*
The optional BRAVIA CAM (extra cost option), is the innovative new camera that does so much more than video calls. BRAVIA CAM recognises where viewers are sitting and optimises the picture and sound to suit. It also facilitates the use of gesture control. All this plus it still functions with your TV to make it the ultimate device for video calls.

*Gesture control and auto optimisation function due later in 2022

Google TV**
Using Google’s world-class interface, Google TV makes accessing this Sony TV’s smart features a breeze. Customise your home screen with the apps you use the most, enjoy recommendations, curate your movie nights and even add to your watchlist via your smartphone – Google TV makes sense of Smart TV. You can also access the Sony’s picture, sound and other TV settings – keeping all you need under one ‘roof’.

**This Sony BRAVIA TV features the Youview catch-up TV service, which includes BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 & My5.

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.

New, premium quality remote control
Pared back and premium, the new aluminium remote control is a joy to use. Simplified buttons and a backlight make it easy to use, day or night. It’s also easy to find. With Function Finder, simply ask the TV to find the remote and remote sends an alert signal – perfect for when it’s dropped behind a cushion!

The perfect partner for your PS5
Combine this BRAVIA XR TV with your PS5 and get a fully optimised experience. Whether you’re gaming or watching a movie on your PS5, the TV automatically adjusts to optimise the picture and settings. Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode mean your PS5 is served better than ever by this Sony TV.

Multi-position stand
Supplied with a multi-position stand, the XR-42A90KU is ideal for use, with or without a soundbar. Dedicated settings offer a higher position for soundbar in place or the standard, low profile position for a sleeker style. The adjustable stand also makes the TV suitable as a desktop gaming display.

See the beauty of OLED, in compact form, with the Sony BRAVIA XR-42A90KU.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony Bravia XR A90K I bought this tv, a week ago, and find it very easay to use. Picture quality is excellent what you would expect from a company like Sony. The sound is excellent, compared to my previous tv. I bought this to pair up with my Sony Playstation 5. I am so glad i did as they go extremely well together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for and more..... This TV arrived a couple of weeks ago and I am more than pleased that I made the decision to go for the best that was inside my budget. It is well worth the money. I live in an area with a new 5G mast which has really interfered with many terrestrial channels and my old TV couldn't cope but my new Sony TV has no problems at all. The features are still being explored and I do like the Bravia Core. I have plugged in an external hard drive and that gives me high quality recordings to enjoy later. I must also mention the quality of the remote control which seem trivial but it isn't; it lights up in the dark when you pick it up and it actually controls all of the functions of my BT TV box and not just some of them.
