See how real 4K entertainment can be on Sony’s AG8 TV. It combines the deep blacks of Sony’s OLED screen, the powerful X1 Extreme processor, and Acoustic Surface Audio which uses the screen itself as the speaker for exceptionally accurate sound. A super sleek OLED panel, pin-sharp 4K UHD resolution, and a glorious HDR colour-scape are boosted by Sony's TRILUMINOS display and MotionFlow XR processing. The Android platform opens up a wealth of online content, you can control it by voice with the Google Assistant, and its minimalist design is supremely elegant.

4K OLED Screen
The Organic LED display doesn't have a backlight, meaning that each pixel is self-illuminating. Every speck of light controls its own luminescence for true depth and colour gradation. With 8 million of these pixels, this 4K OLED set produces impeccably deep blacks, whiter whites, and scintillating colours. And all within a blur-free image that looks just as stunning from any angle.

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 55” screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail.

Features:


Acoustic Surface Audio: A genuine innovation, two specially-designed actuators in the back panel utilise the entire screen as an acoustic surface. The screen is the speaker. Sounds emanate accurately from their point of origin within the image and an integrated subwoofer delivers powerful bass, enabling the sleekest design and harmonising sound and visuals.

X1 Extreme 4K HDR processor: Powering the display is Sony's X1 Extreme processor with powerful real-time image processing for ultra detail.

Motionflow XR: By analysing and inserting extra frames, even the fastest sequences are beautifully smooth and sharp. Revel in every detail of fast action movies or the thrilling spectacle of live sport.

TRILUMINOS Display: Expands the colour range beyond conventional LED displays for a richer, more lustrous image.

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.

Super-Smart Android Platform
Developed by Google, you'll be able to enjoy seamless entertainment, intelligent search and the latest apps from the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Youtube and Google Play.* This TV features a special Netflix Calibrated Mode for studio quality content, and it’s also compatible with Alexa devices, Apple Airplay, and Apple HomeKit.

Android TV with Google Assistant
With the Google Assistant built-in, you can use your voice to find your favourite programmes, apps, videos or music, as well as search for information and more. You can also control connected smart devices in your home (smart device control depends on compatibility). Chromecast built-in casts your videos, photos and apps to the TV straight from your smartphone or tablet (Android or iOS) via Wi-Fi. There are also hundreds of apps and games available for you to explore in the Google Play store.

Youview Catch-Up
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.

Sleek, Elegant Design
Minimalist design keeps you focused on the picture. The stand can be rotated 180° to raise the screen, leaving ideal space for your sound bar beneath. A super-slim bezel maximises the viewing area, and cables are neatly hidden from view.

I won't by Sony TV's or anything anymore, the last 3D Smart one I bought they rolled out next to no firmware updates or bug fixes, they then dropped some of the TVs core smart features and services that the TV used simply because they couldn't be arsed to update or maintain them. So you ended up paying for something just to have them remove it.

Sony have a habit of doing things like that, they did the same with my PS3 back in the day. I wanted a console, Sony released the PS3 with yellow dog linux and backwards compatibility, which were the deciding features for me when it came to choosing between the PS3 and 360 other than bluray player.

I bought my PS3 only to have Sony remove the Linux feature because a child managed to jailbreak their console via a vulnerability which they left in their software; their solution wasn't to fix it and offer decent regular updates, instead they effectively told their customer if you still want LINUX don't update your console anymore but if you don't update your console you can no longer use PSN to play online with your mates. WTF lol

Funnily enough they dropped PS2 (software) backwards compatibility too back then..

I don't buy Sony anymore

I'm tempted, anyone know if footie is any good on this set? I've had a demo of the sound from it, which was excellent but not seen sports on it.

But doesn't this one run on Android, meaning it probably will be supported? I don't know how these things work, but to me Android OS on a TV seems like a bigger draw than something like LG's Web OS (which at 5 years old has started dropping apps).

As it's an LG panel, motion won't be a problem as long as you turn all of the motion processing settings off. The Gadget show gave exactly the same advice when reviewing 3 OLED's about a year ago. I have no complaints when watching Football or F1 on my LG C6.
Well, I went and bought one. Looks good so far.
