This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Same price as the Co op Deal now reduced from £949.99.

No pixels can be distinguished over 1.2-1.5m, and since the TV's screen size is 49" (1.24m) I don't think anyone will be watching it so close

Good alternative for people that have Currys closer or like it better than other retailers.

4K Ultra HD

Trade in that season ticket for a more comfortable and no less realistic spectator experience. The Sony BRAVIA KD49XF9005 49" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV invites you closer to the action with its large screen and picture quality up to four times better than Full HD.

Dazzle your mates on match day with all the tension and excitement of watching live football, without the cold weather and plastic seating.

This TV also uses LED backlighting and local dimming to enhance the contrast of each scene. Perfect for dark and moody thrillers, it brings out the detail in shadows, whilst bright areas stay dazzling, so everything looks closer to real life.

Android TV with Google Assistant

With a Google Assistant built-in, navigating to the content you love to watch on the Sony BRAVIA XF90 Smart TV is easier than ever. Simply ask Google to play a movie title, load BBC iPlayer, or find your favourite YouTuber.

You can ask your TV about the weather, what films are showing at your local cinema, and how long it'll take to get there. And with easy access to the Google Play Store, you're only ever a couple of steps away from watching your favourite Netflix series, TED talks and catch-up apps. With built-in Chromecast, it's easy to share whatever you're watching on your phone to the TV, so everyone can enjoy the latest viral video.

4K HDR

Don't settle for colour without depth. The Sony BRAVIA XF9005 features Sony's flagship X1 Extreme processor, which adds optimum contrast to every frame. Bring life to whatever you watch with much greater depth and texture. And if you're a fan of nature documentaries and serene scenery, the millions of colours from the TRILUMINOS technology and Super Bit Mapping delivers every shade of colour accurately blended. Sunsets never looked so good. You can even go back on the TV planner by up to 7 days thanks to YouView.

This TV includes the 4K X-Reality Pro processor, which helps to upscale whatever you're watching to as close to 4K as possible. Even if you aren't watching 4K content, you can be sure you'll be getting the best possible detail.

X-Motion Clarity

Action-packed, fast-moving scenes and sports can seem like a blur. This can make it difficult to track a ball or keep up with pacey footwork. With X-Motion Clarity packed into your Sony BRAVIA 49XF90, even F1 racing cars appear as detailed as a stationary image. Get a smooth ultra high-quality image without sacrificing brightness.

Effortless installation

For setup without the squabbles, our Team Knowhow experts can connect your new TV to your Blu-ray player, sound bar, and other devices. They'll even get you online so you can put your feet up and start watching straight away. Pass the popcorn.

Essential extras

Want your TV wall mounted? No problem. We've got brackets that tilt, swivel, or fix your TV in place for the best viewing spot in the house. Alternatively, browse our range of TV stands – we've got enough designs to keep even the pickiest interior designer happy.

Avoid the disappointment of getting your shiny new telly home and realising you don't have the cable you need to connect your games console or Blu-ray player. Sandstrom Gold Series HDMI cables support all resolutions and come with a reassuring lifetime guarantee.

I won't even begin to compare the LG Web OS vs Sony Android TV OS. Every review I have read says that the LG WebOS is simply in a different league.

The reverse is true for picture quality . The LG can try and try, but the Sony is universally recognised as simply the best 49" "HDR TV" out there. Even it's predecessor is better than any LG 49" TV out there for "HDR" picture quality.

If we are talking about SDR TV quality then the Sony still wins out but maybe by not so much. For 49" 4K TVs, Sony is still the king. For 55" and above it gets a lot more interesting since the LG OLEDs have come down in price. OLEDs have the better overall picture quality. But the Sony still has the brighter HDR, and no matter what others tell you, once you have seen HDR on a good quality bright HDR TV which also has decent black levels and shadow details you will not be dissapointed.
The XF900 isn't being replaced in 2019 range They are running it for another year.. not many 49" around at this spec. Hot

Just asked them yesterday about the laptops in the same situation, they did not want to disclose any info on this.

I don't think that it is possible to get a 49" TV with decent picture quality and "proper" HDR for less than this at retail price.

Actually, I think they are, called the XF 950, however, I think they dropped the 49 inch version if that's what you mean. 55 will be the lowest.

Speaking of lowest combined this deal with TopCashback or quidco and you are in for the cheapest ever Sony xf900 deal.

Absolutely cracking TV.

"The XG95/90 LED range replaces Sony’s 2018 XF9005 range (you can read our reviews of the XF90 here and here). The XG95 comes with the X1 Ultimate processor, full-array local dimming and Sony’s X-Wide Angle technology for better viewing angles. Dolby Vision, IMAX Enhanced are onboard too.

The 49in XG90 replaces the 49XF9005 and carries over the same X1 Extreme processor, and also packs in full-array local dimming. There’s IMAX Enhanced, Dolby Vision and X-Motion Clarity processing for clearer, smoother images"

Yeah I don’t disagree, I did see a demo and I was poised to get the Sony last time Curry’s had it “reasonably” priced but the viewing angle and OS were must haves.

The black level and details on mine are great FOR ME, coming from an old Panny, another IPS, so I guess as long as I don’t upgrade to the very best, I can enjoy big leaps in PQ without breaking the bank LOL

That's basically what I do. I buy the best that I can afford that will definitely be an improvement on what I already have.

The XG90 seems a little pointless to me. Unless they are upgrading the build quality to match the old (but excellent) XE93. Even then, if I was looking, then I would probably go looking for a good deal on the XF90 once the XG90 was out.

I don't disagree. It's essentially the same TV with a few added features. Whether they actually make a difference to justify the price between it and current xf90 price

There aren't really any added features that I can see from your description (I haven't read about that TV in a while) except IMAX which for the most part is also pointless. The XF90 already was the first TV to come out with X-Motion Clarity and is the only feature I wish I had on my TV, and it already had Dolby Vision.

But of course the feet on the XF90 are pretty awful lol.

Cool thanks. Do you know if they have updated the chip that drives Android or perhaps increase the amount of ram vs XF90?

My problem with LG is neither the Play Movies or YouTube app are capable of playing 4k movies from Google, meaning I've spent a lot of money on a smart TV only to need another device. Frustratingly I also have a 4k firestick which is also incapable of these. I know this is likely a Google problem but not one Sony would encounter.
Can get the 55 inch from coop with code for 880

No its states 5 years in spec.
This is cheaper than the co-op price if not using the code. Any chance the co-op will price match Curry’s £849.99 and still have the code redeemable
Got this early yesterday for £782 with my work discount
I've been considering this tv for a while but have been put off by a lot of conflicting information about the 'grey' letterbox bars ( i.e. not black) that appear on stuff that uses a ratio that isn't 16:9.
I've spent a good amount of time googling but just get conflicting info.
Could somebody with this set( or the 65") shed any light on it for me please? Thanks
Shame about the feet

and the OS
Bought the 55in version of this. Great picture quality. Android OS hasn't been slow as some people have commented on this deal. Only negative I have is the sound isn't great, speaker/soundbar is a must.

The feet are not as bad as they look. To be honest you can barely see them and they make it up worth the cable management sistem
Got 2 Sony Bravia’s, one Android the other Sony OS. Both infuriatingly slow and buggy. No joke, I can’t do anything for at least 1 minute after turning the TV on, insanely slow response from the remote when turning the TV over. Sketchy casting, poor colours especially black, biggest tech mistake I’ve ever made.
