8K HDR for the next generation in picture realism

Powered by the super-powerful X1 Ultimate processor, this Sony Master Series TV delivers the ultimate picture quality – 8K HDR. If you thought 4K was impressive, 8K will blow your mind! With four times the resolution and enhanced brightness, 8K HDR gives the picture texture, depth and detail that’s the closest yet to reality.

X1 Ultimate processor for 8K upscaling
Even if you’re not watching native 8K content, the X1 Ultimate processor uses sophisticated technology to upscale content to as close to true 8K as possible. This means even regular UHD content looks better than ever on this big Sony.

Making the most of any signal with Full array LED featuring X-Wide viewing angle
Powered by Sony’s Backlight Master Drive, the KD85ZG9 uses a full-array LED backlight with ultra-dense structure for the most effective LED screen yet. This ultimate level of brightness control boosts contrast levels, giving deeper blacks, dazzling whites and truer colour between. The TRILUMINOS display also features X-Wide Angle viewing. This improves off-centre colour and definition, meaning everyone in the room sees the best possible picture.

Big screen entertainment
Featuring a mighty 85 inch screen, the Bravia KD-85ZG9 makes the ideal TV for an impressive home cinema system. As big as many projector screens, this 85 inch Sony TV strikes the ideal balance between movie master player when you want and discreet, everyday TV when you don’t.

The smoothest images with X-Motion Clarity
Sony’s X-Motion Clarity makes use of the LED panel’s full array dimming technology to deliver smoother and brighter images. By controlling the backlighting with greater precision this Sony 85” TV offers enhanced realism, especially with fast-moving sports and action movies.

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 the 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.

Acoustic Multi-Audio for enhanced sound
Although a screen of this quality deserves a full cinema surround system to match, the built-in Acoustic Multi-Audio is ideal for watching general TV. When you’ve no need for full, immersive surround sound, Acoustic Multi-Audio uses four, front-facing speakers for crisp, precise sound that’s perfectly aligned with the picture. When you just want to catch-up with the news or sports results, the system makes dialogue sound crisp and natural – just as it should be and a big improvement on most other TVs.

Android TV at its best yet
Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy. Sony’s latest Android TVs are up to 60% faster at launching apps than before. This means that as you switch between YouTube, Netflix and the Home Menu you get a more responsive feel and can enjoy your content sooner.

Hands free Google Assistant for effortless interaction
Built-in Google Assistant and advanced voice control makes finding content easier than ever. You can find new entertainment, check schedules and control your smart home simply by talking to the screen. For universal control, the system also works with Alexa (once connected to a suitable device) and Apple AirPlay/HomeKit via AirPlay.

Make TV easy, with YouView
YouView is a popular innovation that brings together live and on demand TV in an effortless, intuitive way. The simple menu page lets you easily find live or catch-up programmes, without having to open separate apps.

Premium quality – right down to the remote control
This stunning TV almost looks as good when off as it does on. Blade Architecture gives the TV a striking design without distracting from the image. At the back, a sculptured panel and cable management mean this TV isn’t an eyesore if it’s pulled out from the wall. The supplied table stand offers stylish support, or you can mount it on the wall. Every detail is perfectly designed – right down to the premium, metal-faced remote control.

Take a leap in size and quality, with the masterful Sony Bravia KD-85ZG9.
