X1 Processor at its heart for powerful realism
With Sony’s X1 processor at its heart, this Sony 43 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 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.

All the Smart features of Sony’s larger TVs – just in compact form – the Sony KD43XH8196BU makes the perfect TV for smaller spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture I bought this tv after looking online for a while it's a great tv excellent picture and sound system the only thing is that the legs on the tv are right towards the edge so you really need to make sure your stand is big enough unlike me
Date published: 2021-01-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I upgraded from a previous Sony Brazil which I had for 8 years. The only reason for changing was the screen size. Sony Bravia TV's are always years above other TV brands when it comes to technology. So impressed with this TV. Great no matter how you watch. Whether Freeview, streaming or via airplay. Even adds life to my old DVD collection

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking tv Lots of features,happy with the product.the stand could have been possibly an inch higher so I could place my Sony soundbar in front of it but still looks good
