The KD49X8505BBU 4K TV has Triluminos technology from Sony, which expands its colour palette for incredibly vivid and lifelike image quality. Reds, green and blues are boosted to deliver some of the purest and most convincing shades ever witnessed on a television screen.

Twitter is on hand so you can stay up to date with your friends and favourite figures. TweetView lets you see what people around the world are saying about whichever programme you're watching.

Delivery and service

Home Delivery

We have a range of delivery options including next day if you order before 8pm in most areas. Free delivery is available between 7am and 7pm, 7 days a week.

Removed and Recycled for Free
Unlike many other retailers, we will take away your old product for free recycling when we deliver. Just remember to disconnect the appliance before we arrive (unless you have purchased installation).

Install TV to stand with demo

We can also install your new TV on the day we deliver, for most of the UK. Just add installation at the 'Confirm basket’ page at the checkout.

Here's what we'll do:
  • Discuss where the TV is to be situated and how you would like it set up.
  • Disconnect the existing TV, un-box and check the new TV and stand.
  • Assemble the TV and the stand and set the TV on it.
  • Tune in the TV, connect any existing equipment such as a Blu-ray player and games console, then tidy the cables.
  • If it’s a Smart TV, set it up to your existing network (internet connection required).
  • Give you a demo of the main features.
  • Take away your old TV and packaging for recycling if you’d like us to.

Note: Before we arrive, you will need to make sure you have the necessary cables: SCART, AVI HDMI etc. If it’s a Smart TV, you will need an existing internet connection and your new TV either has built-in Wi-Fi or you have purchased the compatible dongle.
