Triluminos Display Extra colours, Extra Brilliance

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.

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.

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.

Rediscover the Detail with 4K X-Reality

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.

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 Sony experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.

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.

Beautiful From Any Angle

A clean, minimalist design keeps you focused on what's important the picture.

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.

Turn your TV Into a Digital Recorder USB HDD Recording

Store your favourite TV shows on an external USB hard disk drive to enjoy whenever you want. USB HDD REC allows one-touch and timer recording of a digital broadcast onto any USB HDD device up to 2TB in capacity. While viewing the show, simply press REC to start recording, which will automatically stop at the end of the programme.

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.

Sony Bravia 55" 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart LED TV | KD55XG8796BU is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable sound and picture Took delivery of this tv and couldn’t wait to get it out of the box . The ease of setting up was just the trick, as most people ( me included) don’t usually read the instructions. The prompts lead me in the right direction and had the telly up and running and connected to Wi-fi within15 minutes. The picture quality is flawless and compared to the tv it replaces the sound is different class, previously needed a sound bar , but not anymore. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Just got this sony bravia, currently have a bravia XF75 witch is great but can be abit slow with the interfaces but that is due to being connected to the internet and only slows when updates are going off witch is to be expected. But with this new tv I was blown away, This product is even better. Better layout, faster loading screens, sharper picture, sound quility is better even down to the new remote layout. Easy to setup as always. All the ports you need for console pc's sound bars ECT. All round I'd definitely stick with Sony, I'd say my next t.v. would be sony as I appreciate the efforts they go into from the detail of the tv to the design down to the remote and functions with the capability to connect an android smart phone if needed. As it stands I'd say this tv is the best ive had by far and Sony has another satisfied customer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Picture The TV was very easy to set up, and gave a great picture straight away, although I would recommend spending a little time using the systems menu to fine tune the picture and sound to your individual liking. For example, I favour the "vivid" picture setting. The 4K picture is absolutely brilliant when watching a programme like blue planet, and the upscaling software gives superb picture quality for standard definition broadcasts. There are plenty of HDMI and other inputs to connect Blu-ray players etc., and the picture quality when connected to my Sony camcorder was fantastic, as were the pictures taken on my android phone. It was very simple to link my android tablet and mobile phone to the TV. The apps section is easy to use, and my teenage daughter loves watching you tube videos on the large screen as opposed to her tablet. The sound is very good and for many people would be more than adequate. However, if you want a full cinematic experience you may well wish to purchase a soundbar or surround sound system, although that is the same for all flat screen TVs. The only minor criticism I have is that the remote control feels a little cheap, and the buttons are quite small. Finally, a great TV, superb picture quality, great sound, and, if like me you like android systems you will get on very well with this TV. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV ! I’ve bought a lot of Sony product over the years, they may be a little more expensive than other brands, but I think you really do get what you pay for. This tv has lots of plus points: • Great looking • Exceptional picture quality, which only gets better with HD and UHD broadcasts • Stylish solid metal legs, which were very easy to attach • No big power block attached to the power lead • A thin outer bezel around the screen • Easy to use and very intuitive user interface and remote control In my opinion, there are only two negatives: • As with all flat panel TVs, the speakers are just adequate so I would recommend a sound bar • The EPG (channel guide) I own a 2-year-old 32” Bravia and the EPG on it is great. When you click on it, you get a small picture of the channel you are watching displayed in the top left hand corner, with the list of channels displayed below, and as you scroll through the channels the programme information is displayed to the side of the picture at the top, so everything you need is there on the screen. I wish Sony hadn’t changed it. On this TV you have YouView rather than Freeview. YouView has a few more channels, and it looks quite snazzy but you don’t get the corner picture or the programme information. It shows the picture behind the guide so you only see the top of the picture and it’s barely visible with an opaque blue tint over it, and you have to press another button to see the programme information, which is annoying. But all in all, it’s great tv! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the best i would expect for the paid price Sometimes loses connection with wifi, the only way is to restart the tv and set it all up again, its sluggish on switching youtube or netflix straight on the turn on, sometimes doesnt want to switch on at all so you have to look for the right angle to catch the infra red signal to turn it on. Over all its a great big screen tv excelent for watching movies and has good sound system in built, if i coupd have a choise i would try about 5 tv in store in a daiily use mode before buying. Goodluck

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Picture The overall quality is fantastic but am having issues watching Freeview, loss of picture and sound for a few seconds at a time. I have been told to make sure all attachments are plugged in properly (they are). I have a new antennae and the engineer says I cannot have a stronger signal but the problem persists. Not sure what to do short of handing back the set.
