Sony KDL55W800C 55-Inch 1080p 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV

Have it all. HD movies, sports and streaming videos burst off the screen with the X-Reality PRO clarity and color enhancer. Android TV adds Google Cast, voice search and a huge collection of apps, games and content from Google Play(1,2). You can even play popular PS3 games directly on your TV—no game console required(3).

Suddenly, everything looks better. All of your existing sports, TV shows and movies are upscaled to super clear quality. Even YouTube clips and smartphone videos are enhanced with stunning results. The X-Reality PRO picture engine analyzes and enhances color, clarity and contrast in real time for a beautifully natural picture.

Edge LED backlighting with frame dimming enhances brightness and contrast. The TV screen adjusts to bright and dark scenes in your movies and TV shows for a more realistic picture.

The familiarity of Android comes to the biggest screen in your home, and it’s so much more than just ‘Smart TV.’ It is apps, games, casting, voice search, and personalization powered by Android TV(1,2).

The things you love doing on your tablet or smartphone can now be enjoyed on your TV. Log into your Google account once to access a huge collection of apps, games and content from Google Play(1,2).

Say “action movies” or “today’s weather” and let Android TV do the work. Voice search helps you quickly find what you want. Simply speak into the optional One-Flick remote or your compatible mobile phone(2).

Google Cast is like having Chromecast built into the TV. Cast your favorite entertainment apps, including HBO GO, Showtime Anywhere, MLB.tv and more, from your Android or iOS device, Mac or Windows computer, or Chromebook to the TV(2).

Personalized content recommendations from Google Play, YouTube and supported apps appear automatically in your home screen(1).

Bring the immersive world of PlayStation directly to your TV with PlayStation Now. Play select PlayStation 3 games like you stream TV shows and movies – streamed directly to your TV. Connect a DUALSHOCK 4 controller to your TV and choose from a variety of game rental periods(3).
