”Basically it’s a serious movie fan’s dream.” ’Techradar’ – Editor’s Choice – 5-Star review.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Picture and Sound After reading and watch many online review , this is fantastic TV for dramas, movies, sport and 4K youtube videos, handle picture beautifully and excellent sound - soundbar would be optional. Android TV - quick to navigate, should have more apps like on the smartphones - Freeview Play and NowTV missing - hopefully they will come. Gaming wise - was 50/50, against other brands (lack of HDMI 2.1), but it can do the job very well on a PS4, see if it can cope with the PS5 abilities. Google Assistant is like any other system - ok at the simple tasks. Easy to connect iphone. Overall well worth the value and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The wow factor and some! There was nothing wrong with my 12 year old Sony 40" TV.... The HD picture was great. The screen size was perfect for my small living room. The sound was ok on its own but once played through the surround sound system it was more than enough to fill the room. Then I got frustrated with the out of date tech.... Only 2 HDMI connections which meant unplugging and re plugging devices to it and none of those were 'arc'. No Chrome Cast or Apple Play built in. So I took what I thought was a calculated risk.... What risk? I should have upgraded years ago! Easy to unbox. I plugged the 55" in.... WOW! The picture just popped out of the screen I felt I could touch it. The sound kicked in and I thought I was in an arena listening to a concert. A few reset forgotten passwords later to be set up for smart and the install process was complete. It can't be that simple surely. I must have missed a few steps? No. All done and off I went. I christened it with a 'Bad Boys For Life' trailer streamed over Apple Air Play from Apple TV. It was like being in the cinema. The definition and quality of the picture is amazing. 4K I should have joined you a long time ago. So many connection options I can't wait to add a sound bar and really show this off. I feel I have finally filled my living room with a master piece. I have only had the pleasure of this TV for the last 10 days. I feel there is more to come over the weeks, months, and years. Great work Sony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome KD-55A8 Review Look and feel The first impression upon lifting the television from the box; “wow it’s so thin”. This was followed by how amazing the design of the television was, from the screen reaching to the edges of the front, to the back being so sleek. The ability to raise or lower the stand to accommodate a sound bar is a new must, this is a well thought out improvement. The remote control has a nice uncluttered look, with a textured back. Setup Initiating setup of the television prompted a clear welcome page with simple well thought out and easy to follow procedures, whether that was using a pre-existing Android mobile setup or via a new manual process. The television quickly identified the Wi-Fi connections available and using the simple keyboard designs allowed for swift input. Features Far too many to mention them all. These range from PC media server capabilities, HDD recording, iOS screen mirroring, inbuilt Google Assistance, Chromecast, and connectivity to Apple Home Kit. There are so many features, apps and add-ons that are available from Google Play store to further enhance an already great tv. Experience Overall experience is enhanced with the sound, coming directly at you from the screen which is amazing, together with crystal clear colours, details and sharpness when showing 4K productions. When connected to a PS4 for gaming, game play has fast response rates, and low input-lags and superb definition and depth. Usability There are plenty of ports available, and the KD-55A8 does everything it can to make the experience fantastic. Whether this is adding a new device such as a PS4, to the custom notifications options that allow the owner to define how they want the tv to present colours and sounds in various modes most appropriate to the currently viewed content. All in all, this TV was simple to set up, has fantastic picture quality and amazing sound coming from the screen. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Joy Of Owning a Sony Bravia KD-55A8 TV Last Thursday, we took delivery of our new Sony Bravia KD-55A8 Television. Both my wife and I are members of the more senior age group and as such we were slightly concerned that we may have a TV which is too technically advanced for us. Thankfully, our fears were quickly dispersed. What an amazing, user friendly TV Sony have produced. Prior to the TV arriving I had looked up some user friendly websites, both from Sony and on YouTube to be a little bit more familiar with the TV and to ensure we handled the TV correctly and unpacked and installed to recognised methods. This was time well spent. From actual receipt of the Sony KD-55A8 TV to sitting down with my wife and watching our first programme, it probably took us no more than an hour and a half. (For more tech savvy folk, that was probably quite a long time, for us, that was magical!!). Unpacking was easy, fitting the feet, once we realised front from back, was easy and everything thereafter, was plain sailing. Prior to the new TV arriving, I had labelled the cables and their location on our existing TV to be sure where they were to be located on the new TV. It wasn't really necessary, but helped. The installation process, for us, was simple, as we only had three cables to worry about. 1 x cable for the existing Terrestrial Digital Aerial Connection, 1 x HDMI cable from the HDMI/Arc connection on the TV into the Sky Q Box and 1 x HDMI cable from position 2 on the TV into our external Amp/Media Box. Plug the mains lead in, switch on the TV and simply follow the on screen instructions. Done, it was that simple. Once we had followed the main initial set up instructions from the TV, we sat down to watch our TV in action. We were immediately struck by the pure brilliance and clarity of the picture. We have owned high spec, quality TV's before, but this TV takes you to a new level of viewing pleasure. Once we were fully comfortable with the feel and operation of the TV, we delved into the settings to personalise the picture for our needs. Again, simple on screen instructions, make this as easy to do as possible. No complicated jargon, no pieces of text designed to for "techies" only. It has been designed for everyone to use and understand. We have Sky Q, and as is the way with Sky, we feel you need to make slight adjustments to the picture settings to compensate for Sky's HD picture quality. The TV came with the picture mode set to Vivid. This was too strong for our viewing pleasure and we have adjusted the picture on Custom Screen Settings to Picture in Cinema Mode. We left the brightness at max, although we have played with it on level 45 setting, but we will see as go. Once we were into relaxed viewing mode, we were struck by the clarity of the speech on screen and how the voice sounds emanate directlt from the position of the person speaking on the screen. It is an additional wow factor of the many enhanced features of the TV. We have sat through several different channels now to experience all the different aspects of TV viewing. HD channels such as Nat. Geographic, The History Channel and Sports channels are an incredible viewing experience. The picture has you believe you watching the subject matter live through an open window. It is so clear and real. We are typically impressed with the new voice control feature on the remote. We found that to be very useful when searching content and instructions. What you will appreciate, immediately, is the "true" balck and white colours on the screen. It is amazing and really does enhance your viewing pleasure, especially in night scenes, darkened rooms and even daylight scenes with white architecture in the background. We really love that enhancement. To be honest, the overall look of the TV is pure class. It is not imposing in our lounge, which isn't very big, the controls are easy to use and the connectivity to our Sky Q box, Amp/Media Box and Google Home are effortless and uncomplicated. So far, we have found nothing to be disappointed about, and that is quite amazing for us. Simply put, we are overjoyed with our brand new Sony KD-55A8 Oled TV. We have one last test to overcome, and that is when our grandchildren can come round and they start to use the TV. You can be sure, with all the new advanced features, apps and viewing experiences. they will show us a whole lot more of what we can enjoy. We can't wait.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony A8 Oled 55" TV Wow what a tv...the picture quality is astonishing and sound is awesome! Put a film on changed to cinema mode and it feels like your there in the scene! I love this tv...even the unboxing has been made with thought so as not to damage the frameless screen The remote is easy to use and fits well in the hand, the apps all work as they should, used Netflix and Prime video and the picture kept up whether connected on Lan or wifi equally My only critsism is the feet (stand) are rather widely placed apart which means i've got to purchase a new cabinet or mount it on the wall! Everyone in our house loves this tv it's easy to setup and picture and sound is just amazing...Thanks Sony it's just what we needed! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
