Sony XBR75X850C 75-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV

Step up to four times more clarity than HD(1), expanded color and Android TV. Everything you watch—sports, TV shows, movies—is upscaled for 4K Ultra HD viewing(2). Even 4K streaming is enhanced to maximize picture quality. Android TV adds Google Cast, voice search and a huge collection of apps, games and content from Google Play (3,4).

Experience matters. Sony launched expanded color in 2013, expanded brightness range in 2014, and has been upscaling to 4K for over 10 years. As other manufacturers start implementing these capabilities, Sony takes another step forward improving color accuracy and clarity of HD and 4K video in the X850C. See the difference experience makes.

All the colors you dream of can now be seen on your Sony TV with TRILUMINOS Display, including hard-to-reproduce shades of red, green and aqua blue. Colors come alive on the screen in the widest color range ever, and dynamic color correction ensures colors are as consistent and accurate as possible every single time.

Whatever you’re watching, watch it in 4K. All of your existing HD sports, TV shows and movies are upscaled to super clear 4K quality(2). Our most advanced 4K X-Reality PRO upscaling is developed from Sony’s 10+ years of experience upscaling to 4K, exceeding all other TV brands.

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 (3,4).

For those who desire the best 4K streaming experience, Sony 4K TVs are specifically engineered to recognize and improve 4K streaming video(2). 4K Streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Instant Video offer expansive libraries of movies and original TV series in 4K Ultra HD with ultimate convenience (3).

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 (3,4).

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 One-Flick remote or your compatible mobile phone (4).

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 (4).

Personalized content recommendations from Google Play, YouTube and supported apps appear automatically in your home screen (3).

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 (5).

Hundreds of movies and TV shows are available from the top 4K service providers, including Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Instant Video, YouTube, DirecTV video on demand and more (3)
