Description


OLED TV

True reality comes to life with deep black and natural colour. Over 8 million self illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the X1 Extreme processor. Sony's OLED TV creates exquisite, unprecedented contrast.

4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme

Our 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme includes powerful real time image processing for ultra detailed pictures. It takes everything you watch and upscales it to near 4K HDR quality.

Acoustic Surface Technology

Unlike most TV speakers, sound comes to you from the entire screen, immersing you in exciting new entertainment experiences. Two actuators behind the TV vibrate the screen to create sound that's truly engaging. It's pictures and sound in perfect harmony.

Triluminos Display

See vivid real world colours all around you. A Triluminos display maps from a wider palette, faithfully reproducing every shade and hue in the umbrellas.

Rediscover Every Detail with 4K X Reality Pro

With 4K X Reality Pro, every image is upscaled closer to true 4K quality for remarkable clarity. Images are sharpened and refined in real time, revealing extra detail in the books and architecture of the library.

Discover Thrilling 4K HDR Entertainment

This TV brings you the excitement of movies and games in 4K HDR. It handles a variety of HDR formats, including HDR10 and Hybrid Log Gamma.

Transform Your Viewing with Dolby Vision

Bring scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colours. Dolby Vision is an HDR solution that creates an immersive, engaging cinematic experience in your home.

Works with Amazon Alexa

Connect your Amazon Alexa enabled devices for seamless hands free control of a Sony TV. With Amazon Alexa, you can power up your TV, change channels, control volume and more.

Enjoy HDR Gaming with PlayStation

Sony's 4K HDR televisions are perfect partners for PlayStation and PlayStation Pro consoles. Immerse yourself in a responsive, fun filled gaming experience with vivid textures and intensely vibrant colours. See your favourite games come to life with incredible picture quality.

Connect with Google Home

Connect Google Home for seamless hands free control of a Sony TV. With Google Home, you can find and cast your favourite videos to your Sony TV, without lifting a finger.

Easy Wall Mounting

A super thin panel allows easy mounting of your TV to a wall.

Motionflow XR Keeps the Action Smooth

Enjoy smooth and sharp details even in fast moving sequences with Motionflow XR. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones. It compares key visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of missing action in the sequences. Some models also include black frame insertion for a blur free and truly cinematic look.

Maximises the Viewing Area

The screen is edged with a slim, narrow, 4 sided frame that maximises the viewing area.

Object based HDR Remaster

With Object based HDR remaster, the colour in individual objects on screen is analysed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black to white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures and more realistic pictures.

Minimal Blur, Just Crystal Clear Scenes

Even in fast moving scenes, there's minimal blur, so you can enjoy smooth pictures with outstanding clarity. Each OLED pixel can go from off to bright in a fraction of a second.

Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR

There are thousands of tones, shades and gradations of light in a sunset. Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR reveals them all. It creates smooth, natural 4K TV picture quality as you watch, without the banding that can occur on other TVs.

Dual Database Processing

One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on screen noise. The other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.

Say What You Want to See with Voice Search

Spend less time browsing, and more time watching. Voice search on Android TV provides you with the power of Google search, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time consuming text entry. You can also get recommendations, asking for romantic comedies for example, brings up a list of suitable options.

A Brilliant View at Any Angle

See pictures that are bright and clear from any angle. With OLED, you can bring the whole family together to enjoy the screen and they'll all have a great view of the action.

Chromecast Built in

Bravia is Chromecast built in so you can easily cast your favourite entertainment like YouTube or Netflix from your personal device on to the stunning Bravia screen. You can cast from Android, iOS, or your laptop.

Clear Audio+

Make your listening as lifelike as your viewing. Clear Audio+ fine tunes TV sound for an immersive experience that seems to surround you. Hear music, dialogue and surround effects with greater clarity and separation, whatever you're watching.

Clear Phase for Smooth, Balanced Frequencies

Bravia uses a powerful computer model to analyse and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response. It does this by sampling the speaker frequency with higher precision. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker's natural response resulting in pure, natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.

DSEE Restores Detail to Your Digital Music

Low resolution internet video, catch up TV and other heavily compressed audio files don't always sound so great. A large amount of information gets thrown away when digital audio is compressed. With Digital Sound Enhancement Engine(DSEE) technology, lost frequency components especially high frequencies are restored for natural sound with a more spacious feel.

Cinematic S-Force Front Surround

Enjoy an immersive soundstage that pulls you into the heart of the action. S-Force Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three dimensional sound fields, you'll enjoy rich, high fidelity audio across a wider listening area.

Sony KD55AF8 55" Bravia OLED 4K HDR Ultra HD Smart TV with Voice Remote is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Picture Just purchased this set and really happy with picture quality and the amount of tweak settings available, if that's your thing. The price is also good for this years model - in comparison to other brands. Another great feature is the acoustic screen. A little gripe about the youview - I don't have a DTT or Dsat feed only STB and you can't access ITV Hub or CH4 without them - don't have this issue on my other smart TV which isn't a Sony. The remote isn't brilliant needs to be Bluetooth/Wifi and comparing the UI - menu against other brand seems a little clunky hopefully some software updates will fix these small issues in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Magnificent! For more years than I care to admit to I have always bought Sony TVs, cameras, mp3 players, original Aibo etc. for the quality reliability and joy of ownership, this AF8 OLED TV is the best thing Sony has produced by far. I received it the day it was released on the 24th April 2018, the installation was simple, the weight of the TV mind-blowingly light, paired with a new UBP-X800 Ultra HD DVD player, the picture is stunning, as it is with Sky Ultra HD channels. I was intending to buy a new Sony Atmos soundbar to compliment the TV as it replaced a Sony home cinema system, but as yet I am not convinced that I need to. Paired with Alexa and it's own voice recognition the remote will soon be a thing of the past! Well done Sony a FANTASTIC TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing picture but a handful to set up Sound and image on my new 55 inch AF8 are jaw dropping. UHD pictures are to die for and the sound either via the TV. my surround sound or together again are fabulous. Connectivity is excellent as is the design and appearance. Downsides: The instruction manual is appalling and offers nothing beyond rudimentary set up. Streaming channel set up is bizarre and best avoided. CODEC coding that prevents the TV playing UHD images in Netflix when it is fed directly into the pre-loaded apps is just bizarre.I am Sony on the case to explain why this is but it is slow going. When you get it all to work it is the best thing since sliced banana.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent picture & great sound. I have now had this TV for just over a month and every day I find more good things about it. When my wife and I walked into the store we had no intention of replacing our 5 year old TV we just wanted to see what was available. That was until we had a demo on the AF8. This TV has enabled me to reorganise all the spaghetti out the back in a neat and orderly fashion and is now invisible from our seating positions. Secondly due to the enhanced sound quality it has enabled me to dispose of our surround sound system (again less clutter). We like everything about this TV, but it does have one down side the software for free view is very very slow and for this reason I have had to knock one star off its rating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied I've had the TV for five weeks or so. In that time I've needed to unplug the set ten times. The TV often stops responding to input from the remote. Leaving it to sort itself out can take up to ten minutes, I've tried. So that's why, like a computer, it needs resetting by unplugging. Recently when I press TV guide, I keep getting the Google Play app that shows movie trailers. Soundwise, it needs a better equaliser setting. I have to change the Picture setting constantly. Standard is too dark, vivid is OK for daylight, but needs going back to Standard or Custom. I am disappointed after spending so much money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All great features you come to expect from Sony Bought this TV two weeks ago after a lot of investigating of other makes and models. Found picture and sounds easy to set up. Had looked at the A1 but when I saw that the 2018 model had incorporated everything in the back of the set and that the bulky stand had been replace it impressed me to invest.
Date published: 2018-05-17
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Picture and sound, poor smart TV. Love the integration of sound to screen and the picture quality is superb, good concealing of all external permanent connections. However the SMART TV is very disappointing. Android is glacially slow and on switching on the TV does not revert to a basic TV channel 1 setting but tries to connect last service. If this was a internet connection, then this need to start up and search. Often this results in the set seemingly to have died, loading the TV guide from startup takes minutes, so no use if you suddenly want to find a programme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Although this TV is the most expensive one we've ever bought we are delighted with it. The picture is amazing - so clear you feel like the people are in the room. The colour quality is fantastic and we are very happy with the sound also. One of the best things about it is the slimline appearance - about half an inch - and we've been able to hide all the wires in the unit it sits on. The features are very good and easy to use although I don't think I've found them all yet. All in all a fabulous piece of kit.
