Exquisite Contrast, Perfect Blacks

Sony’s OLED TV is like nothing you’ve ever seen before with truly exceptional black, shadow, and color. Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the X1 Extreme processor creating exquisite, unprecedented contrast.

Pure Black, Perfect Vision

Sony's OLED pixels work individually and can be turned off completely to deliver absolute black. This level of supreme contrast reveals detail, depth, textures, and colors for a view that is stunningly real.

Uncover the Detail with 4K HDR

High Dynamic Range (HDR) will change the way you look at TV. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, color, and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. The result is the most life-like picture TVs have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail.

Everything Should Look Like 4K HDR

Sony's newly developed 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme outperforms their conventional 4K Processor X1 with 40% more real-time image processing power. It takes everything you watch and improves it to near 4K HDR quality. Object-based HDR Remaster technology can detect, analyze, and optimize each object in the picture individually to adjust the overall contrast for a more natural and realistic picture on screen.

A Revolution in TV Sound

Innovative Acoustic Surface technology brings a unique, enhanced viewing experience. Unlike most TV speakers, sound comes to you from the entire screen, immersing you in exciting new entertainment experiences.

Vibrant Colors, Smooth Gradations

Only when surrounded by true black do colors seem really vibrant. Colors are as rich and vivid as nature’s own, thanks to the TRILUMINOS Display with more shades of red, green, and blue than ever before. You’ll enjoy rich, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. And, 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping reveals thousands of shades and gradations of light, for sunsets as bright and clear as real life.

A Design of Sophistication

A design that’s a work of art. The all-new one slate design is curated to look wherever the TV may rest. The enhanced design makes it easy to mount the TV even closer to the wall, and the redesigned vertical stand disappears when placed on TV stands or entertainment centers. The TV has no visible speakers, and unsightly wires are managed through stand, leaving nothing but elegance from all angles.

A Genius TV, A Smarter Home

Find all the entertainment you can dream of, faster than ever. From movies and TV shows, to thousands of apps, Sony’s Android TV brings you everything in an instant. Cast your favorite apps with Google Cast, and Voice Search helps you find the entertainment you want. And with Google Home and Amazon Alexa compatibility, simply voice-control your TV and ask it to do things like cast and control videos from YouTube with Google Home or change the channel or volume with Amazon Alexa.

Upscale to a More Natural Picture

The difference is clear. You’ll see life-like detail and stunning clarity, no matter what you're watching. Two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving images in real time. 4K X-Reality PRO upscales images to near 4K clarity while a second database cleans the picture and reduce on-screen noise. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by the powerful 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme.

Meet Your Google Assistant

Sony TVs equipped with Android TV now have Google Assistant built-in, making your life easier. Ask it questions, connect to smart home devices like Nest, or access many of the apps and services you already use every day. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help.

Motionflow Keeps the Action Smooth

TV that keeps up with real life. Sony’s refresh rate technology enhances the OLED’s unique panel speed to allow fast moving action sequences in sports and movies to be seen with life-like clarity.

Great Picture From Any Angle

Thanks to the OLED display’s unique panel characteristics, picture looks great from anywhere you’re watching. Content looks amazing whether you’re directly in front of the TV, or off to one side or the other.

Live TV, No Annual Contract

PlayStation Vue is now available on Android TV. Enjoy live TV streaming with no annual contract and no surprise fees. Experience premium content, including sports, news and more, from your favorite networks.

Your Favorite Apps, On Your TV

Plasma TV replacement
I bought this TV to replace an old plasma TV, a 50’ LG that I had for 10 years. I bought it for $1799. I enjoyed my plasma because it did not blur when I watched Australian Rules Football, and dark scenes were black, not a dark grey. I have yet to watch footy on this TV, but the black scenes are black and not grey. If I could, I would only have OLED TVs. I currently use this TV in my den. I have a Sony XBR-55X930D in my living room. I relegated my Samsung UN55MU6071 to my bedroom.

Great TV
The TV is fantastic. The looks and quality are outstanding and I would not expect anything else from Sony. This TV replaced a previous Sony that was over 12 years old and still performs well to this day.

Picture is fine but the sound quality is not that good. Guess I will have to purchase a soundbar.

it was possessed!
This television turned itself on when ever it felt like it. Middle of the night, 2 hours after Geek Squad came to check it, early morning...It's really unnerving to hear voices coming from the living room in the middle of the night, or walk in to an empty house with the TV on.
Cannot customize homescreen to display my favorites where I want them. Remote control options were not the same as the ones shown on UTube video that explains how to customize. Geek Squad was not able to figure it out either.
Picture is excellent, but how long could it last if it is on 24/7 ?
Finally had it replaced with a new one.
I hope my review will change with this one!

55KD-A8F Excellant look
I have bought it 2 months ago and explored all possible ways to use it in right way. Look and feel and amazing color display and undoubtly is the best. Pros: Clour Display, Design and Brand value. Cons: Remote ( look as well as functions are very sub stanard for Sony), Inbuilt software needs attention as well as anti virus protection, Certain operations are not consistent and found erratic. ( Bluetooth sound devices on and off has no effect and volume up and down becomes erratic when internet connection is on). During internet connection A8F becomes slow and malfunctions happens. Accoustic surround needs attention or software update to enhance the output. Overall needs good software supported GUI and user friendly good remote.

looks great and sounds great too
Just fired it up last night. Love the picture, and the sound is terrific. Replacing a LG EF-9500 OLED. Really cant wait to try out HDR on this set. Ill repost again after I have time to toy with video settings. BTW this TV is a solid build, my LG was really flimsy the way it mounted to the stand.

Set-up was easy
I initially purchased a Samsung OLED 55 inch and had to return it due to problems with the external receiver. It was a total waste! I replaced it with this Sony that was so simple to assemble, and set up for viewing-this is an excellent TV with a beautiful crisp clear picture. A smart TV that allows for easy transition from Netflix, Amazon, Apple apps and back to regular TV with one Click!

Lbve the SMART options
We have had the Sony OLED TV for a few weeks and can't say enough about the picture quality, especially on 4K provided programming. The fascinating enjoyment is using the search feature with the microphone enabled remote to view high quality recorings of almost anything that you can think of using keywords. This TV as most newly produced TVs no longer have a slot for an SD card which was great for producing a slide of show of our travels. Perhaps I'll devise a connection to enable this feature.

I like the picture on the A8F OLED 55 Sony. I watch Amazon Prime movies + documentaries all the time. However 4 K content is not available in the Amazon app. Additionally I am a bit concerned with the remote because it is complex + hard to figure out. I have never owned a smart TV + live alone. I wish to purchase a smart TV I like. What is the suggestion?
Holly on Feb 4, 2019
  Hi Holly. Give us a call; we can answer all your questions and find the best solution for you.
Is the Sony XBR-55A8F worth the premium price compared to Samsung QLED 55?
A shopper on Dec 24, 2018
  In our opinion, OLED provides the best picture on the market, period. QLED offers great color, great speed, and more, but OLED does all of it and still offers better black levels, perfect off-angle viewing, and better sound as well (though we still recommend going for at least a soundbar to improve audio).
