Sony’s XH81 combines superb 4K HDR picture quality, immersive sound, and Android smart technology. Enjoy the authentic colour of its TRILUMINOS display, while Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos sound combine to deliver a cinematic experience. The Android platform opens up an enormous range of online content, you can control it by voice with the Google Assistant, and its design profile is elegantly minimal.
HDR with Dolby Vision
HDR deepens your view and shows shades previously unseen in home entertainment. Expanding light, dark and every colour in between to extraordinary new levels, this model's picture gets closer to real life. This set supports multiple HDR formats including Dolby Vision.
4K Ultra High Definition
This 49” screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail.
X1 4K HDR Processor: Driving the display is Sony's powerful processor for an image of exceptionally smooth fluidity and realism.
4K X-Reality Pro: Upscales non-4K content to reveal extra detail. It analyses every pixel and improves contrast, colour and sharpness for increased clarity.
Motionflow XR 400: Every image on the screen refreshes at a higher rate than normal for noticeably smoother motion. Perfect for fast action movies and sports.
TRILUMINOS Display: Accurately reproduces a wide spectrum of shades and colours. Coupled with Sony’s Precision Colour Mapping technology, the result is breathtaking, yet realistic imagery.
Dolby Atmos Sound: Surround sound fills the room for immersive audio realism. Combined with Dolby Vision, it produces a richly cinematic experience.
Android TV with Voice Remote and Google Assistant built-in
This Sony smart TV allows you to talk to the remote to find films and TV series, switch apps, answer questions, and control other compatible smart home devices. You can access streaming services in an instant, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Google Play Movies.* And you can display content from your smartphone, tablet or other devices with Chromecast built in. It also works with Alexa-enabled devices, Apple Airplay and Apple HomeKit.
In addition to a wealth of online entertainment, this set comes with built-in YouView. The seven day scroll back TV guide brings together catch up TV from across BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and My5**. You can also enjoy over 70 live TV channels and radio stations for free, such as BBC 1 & 2, ITV, Channel 4, E4, Channel 5, 5 USA, ITV 2 and Dave.
The design of the XH81 keeps you focused on the picture. Cable management features keep connecting wires hidden from view in the Premium Blade stand, and a narrow bezel maximises the viewing area.
