4K High Dynamic Range

For the ultimate in picture quality, this TV pairs the brilliance of 4K clarity with the brightness, color, and detail of High Dynamic Range (HDR). Previously hidden areas of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail.

X-Tended Dynamic Range Pro

Enjoy a beautiful night view, full of dazzling lights and deeper blacks. With up to ten times the contrast of conventional LED TVs, dark scenes are darker and bright scenes brighter.


See vivid real-world colors all around you. A TRILUMINOS Display maps colors from a wider palette, faithfully reproducing every shade and hue in the umbrellas.


Dynamic Backlight Control helps improve energy efficiency by adjusting backlight brightness as picture content changes. Power Saving Mode helps save energy by adjusting backlight brightness. Backlight Off Mode helps save energy by turning picture off, which is realized by both display off on LCD panel and backlight off.

Advanced Controls

Enjoy many of your favorite smartphone and tablet experiences on a big, beautiful BRAVIA screen. Android TV with advanced voice control lets you connect and access content from movies and TV shows, to thousands of apps, simple by talking.

Clean Rear Look

Keep wires out of sight, thanks to a hidden cable panel structure. All of your cables are fully concealed behind the panel, and run down through the legs of the stand, so everything looks tidy.

Narrow Aluminum Frame

The narrow aluminum frame helps the TV look slim and attractive, while focusing the eye on the screen for maximum entertainment.

Cable-Free Front

Hide all your cables from set-top boxes or Blu-ray players within the unique stand.

Super-Slim, Flush Surface Display

The screen on this ultra-thin 4K HDR TV has a full flush surface and super-thin bezel so you stay focused on the picture.

Easy to Plug and Play

Easily connect a USB or HDMI into the side of your TV and start playing. Just close the side cover to keep things tidy when you're not using it.

Front-Facing 3-Way Speaker for Clearer Sound

Feel more of the moment with dynamic, immersive sound. This front-facing speaker projects voices and dialogue with more clarity than conventional downward-firing speakers.

Motionflow XR Keeps 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 mission action in the sequences.

Swivel Mount

Easily access all your connections and watch from the best possible angle. The flush-mount swivel bracket allows easy adjustment of the TV whilst on a wall to suit your space and needs.

Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR

Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR creates a smoother, more natural picture by minimizing its color banding. With 14-bit powerful signal processing, it breaks up the solid bands of color of an 8-bit or 10-bit source, up-converting to 14-bit equivalent gradation, with 64 times more color levels. It delivers graceful reproduction of faces, sunsets, and other areas of subtle color gradation.

Dual Database Processing

The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme has two imaging databases that work together in real time to improve your picture. By searching through thousands of picture patterns in Sony-exclusive databases for noise reduction and super-resolution, they remove unwanted noise and up-scale every image closer to the clarity of 4K, so you can enjoy incredibly picture quality no matter the source.

Object-Based HDR Remaster

By analyzing the objects in each scene individually, object-based HDR remaster optimizes and enhances color and contrast. It brings everything you watch closer to the quality of HDR. Dark elements get darker, bright elements brighter, and everything in between is more accurately lit, for realism in every scene never-before-possible on Sony TVs.

Content Bar

The unobtrusive content bar quickly lets you find the movie, TV show, or video you’re looking for. Call up the content bar and you can keep watching, while you scan through live TV, videos on demand, downloaded TV shows, and much more. You can even customize the content bar to show you the content you go to most often first. 

Built-In Chromecast

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

Voice Command

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.

Made to Listen: ClearAudio+

Make your listening as life-like as your viewing. ClearAudio+ fine-tunes TV sound for an immersive experience that seems to surround you. Hear music, dialog, and surround effects with greater clarity and separation, whatever you're watching.

DSEE Restores Detail

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.

Google Play

Discover movies and TV shows, games, and much more from Google Play. Enjoy a huge and ever-growing choice of apps on your TV in a brand new way.

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.

Bluetooth Connectivity

Based on radio waves, Bluetooth technology allows you to make a quick, short-range wireless connection that won’t be interrupted by objects in the signal path. Once paired, you're free to stream all of your favorite content—including movies, pictures, and music—from your smartphone or tablet to your TV.

Clear Phase

BRAVIA uses a powerful computer model to analyze 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.

TV SideView App

Find, record, and talk about your favorite TV shows using the TV SideView app. Use your tablet or smartphone (Android or iOS) to see the latest TV schedule as well as view the most popular programs currently trending. Once you’ve found what you want to watch, you can set an alarm so you never miss the shows you love. Live tweet your reactions and see what other viewers are saying.

IR Blaster

The Infra-red (IR) Blaster lets you control other devices in your home from your Sony TV remote. You can use it to control your Set-top box (cable box) with the TV remote controller.

So fare so good
All is great.
One thing is, net speed is slow, only 15.00 Mbps.
I have a DVD player that does 23.00 Mbps and computer that does 39.00 Mbps.

We bought this TV a couple of months ago and it is a vast improvement over our 9 year old plasma set. Picture quality and brightness are fantastic. We were apprehensive about viewing angle, but once it was installed in our home, we discovered our concerns were unfounded. A great set with many options and intuitive controls.

Impressive, this TV rocks!
I wanted to upgrade to 4K and replace an old plasma display after ten years. The set is packed with almost a complete surround of stiff styrofoam and protected well. This unit has all the inputs and outputs for anything needed, even composite/component which is missing on some sets. It has a very cool set of hatch covers on the rear to cover up all the cables when routed up the stand feet. The thin but not too thin bezel is strong enough for moving around and does not look obtrusive. The picture settings are various and the menus allow for any adjustments needed per tastes. The realism of the picture is stunning. The set only weighs about 70 pounds with stand. You just assemble the three part stand, mount the set onto the stand and then onto your audio video rack. I used the optical cable to run to my Z*** sound base to bypass the speakers. The speakers are OK but not impressive, like any TV these days. The set quickly found my router and set itself up online with my password, software update was easy. After that you have to just use the home and settings menus to find the adjustment features you want. This is the only complaint I have, that the included operator's manual is very limited. It doesn't show how to use the menus at all, you must find them on your own by stumbling and bumbling around with the remote commands. But once you find out how to access all the adjustments the TV really comes alive! All the detail adjustments are there and fairly easy to understand. So all in all, a first class picture. Sony needs to offer an expanded operator's manual giving instructions on how to navigate the menus more understandably. Not everyone is up to date on current audio video features and how to use them. But this ranks with the best displays on the market. Everyone should be happy with this TV.

I got this TV as an exchange for my XBR-HX950 that developed a bad panel. I was initially worried that this TV was not a worthy replacement for the HX950 and it's stellar picture. It only took me a day to realize that the 930 was every bit as nice as the 950 with black levels being noticeably darker and more saturated. There is still a minor amount of blooming in certain scenes but most people would fail to notice it. 4K content helps mitigate this very minor performance issue, but the amount of content readily available is not yet a very large library to choose from.

My ONLY real gripe so far is the remote. The response time is spotty at best. It gives a really disconnected feel when browsing and gets annoying at times. The actual remote however is much better than any past Sony remote and has a nice feel in your hand.

I wanted to love Sony TVs...
I love other Sony products, so I was extremely excited to pick up this TV. Unfortunately, the clouding and screen uniformity on this TV is absolutely horrendous. I have flash-lighting and white blotches in dark scenes even when sitting in front of it. Even after enabling auto local dimming, the cloudiness and white-filter look of this TV is a major turn off. Very grainy compared to what I have seen with other peoples' sets (same set as this). Some clouding is normal in this type of panel, but definitely not like this. I am majorly disappointed because it took me a very long time to research and decide choosing this set only to be unable to enjoy it to the fullest. 85% of my time with this TV is spent fiddling with the settings to get the terrible grain and cloudiness to go away to little success. The picture is promising when it works. I've seen videos of other peoples' sets, and mine seems to be in the minority. The white blotchiness is not present on my friend's 900e or a few videos online with videos of their 930e's. Cameras usually make clouding worse, but this picture really looks this bad on my screen. This is with a backlight AND in daytime. I feel robbed because all the research I did on this TV made it seem incredible. It got two stars because I know all TVs aren't like this. The panel lottery is absolutely real. To be safe, please just avoid this TV. As a Sony fan, I am majorly disappointed in the quality control.
