Sony XBR55X900B 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV

It’s quite simply the most immersive, highest-resolution TV experience possible. Sony’s premium 4K Ultra HD TV boasts four times the clarity of HD (1), more brilliant expanded color and up to two times the brightness range of standard LED HDTVs. Breathtaking detail is depicted with pinpoint accuracy for the most natural images. The TRILUMINOS display produces the widest color spectrum we've ever offered in a TV. Best of all, you’ll enjoy Sony’s exclusive X-tended Dynamic Range local dimming technology for up to 2x the brightness range with deeper blacks than before.

It begins with the physical shape of the TV. The Wedge creates extra space at the bottom of the TV for larger speakers and built-in subwoofers. And larger speakers mean richer sound, deeper bass, and louder volume, so you’ll hear every hit in a football game and feel the pounding music in a chase scene.

An even faster way to find what you want. With ‘One-Flick’ on the remote you can instantly pull up a short cut menu that lets you navigate to your favorite TV channels, networked photos, and online videos from YouTube, Crackle, and Video Unlimited (4).

With Social Viewing you can watch TV, follow tweets and Skype, all at the same time. You can enjoy sports, TV shows, or movies with your friends and family even if you are not together. Add your Skype video chat to the TV screen and cheer together when your favorite team scores. To add tweets on screen, choose a hashtag, and see comments relating to your show flow across the screen (4).

Bring the immersive world of PlayStation directly to your TV with PlayStation Now. For the first time discover and play PlayStation 3 games – all streamed directly to your TV and played by connecting a DUALSHOCK 3 controller to your TV. Choose from individual game rentals or subscribe to a variety channel of games and let epic adventures begin (5).
