Product information
Truly exceptional

Discover just how intense dramas can be with the Sony BRAVIA KD55A8BU 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR OLED TV. Only with OLED do you get the true blacks, shadows, and colours the creator wanted you to see. Each pixel is individually controlled rather than lit from the sides, so there's no haze – you'll really see the difference during those Planet Earth documentaries.

At the heart of the A8 is Sony's X1 Ultimate Processor. Everything is enhanced – you get incredible contrast, true-to-life colour, and exceptional viewing angles.

Made for action

Frantic football matches, fast-paced films, speedy video games – whatever's on your TV you want it to run smoothly. The KD-55A8 makes sure your picture doesn't skip a beat thanks to X-Motion Clarity tech behind the screen.

The screen is the speaker

Sound and picture are brought together in perfect harmony with Sony's Acoustic Surface Audio. It's pretty unique – the sound comes directly from where the action is happening on screen, making your entertainment more immersive than ever.

You can boost your sound further by adding a sound bar to your A8. The two-way metal stand not only looks good but can be rotated to offer space for a sound bar in front.

Smart TV

Dim the lights, search for a romantic movie on Netflix, and check how long your pizza takeaway will be – all without lifting a finger. With Google Assistant built-in, all you need to do is ask.

Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ – you can watch all your favourites directly on your TV with a press of a button. And don't forget you've still got BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and the rest to catch up with - it's even easier to find the shows you've missed by scrolling back through the YouView TV guide.

Delivering your online order

Choose when you want it delivered

We deliver 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week, even at weekends. Your options include:

  • Next-day delivery, available on orders placed up to 7pm (subject to availability).
  • All-day delivery (7am-7pm).
  • Delivery in your preferred 4 hour time slot (next day or on the day of your choice) from £20.00.

If you tell us your mobile number when you order we’ll text you on delivery day or the night before to let you know what time we’ll be at your address. Or you can use our Knowhow Track It service. Weekend and next day delivery is available in most areas, subject to availability.

Availability checker

How and when can you get hold of your selections? Finding out should be quick and easy, so with just a few clicks our Availability Checker shows you:

  • Delivery dates, time-slots and prices
  • Local stores with stock you can collect from now
  • Local stores you can get items sent to for you to collect later
To use our Availability Checker, simply:
  1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
  2. Click on the magnifying glass
  3. Review the delivery and collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket

Stock updates

Find something you want but it’s not in stock? On the item’s product page, simply click on ‘Email me when back in stock’, and let us have your email address. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available again.

Order online and collect in store

Order & Collect ­­– The majority of our stores are now open and offering a collection service, allowing you to safely order online and collect from store contact-free.

Our stores with parking available can offer a Drive Thru collection experience using the parking bays clearly marked outside the store. Here’s how it works;

  • Once you’ve had confirmation your order is ready to collect, drive to the store.
  • When you’ve arrived, click on the link in your confirmation email to let our team know.
  • One of our colleagues will put your order in your car boot.
Stores which DO NOT have parking outside, can only offer a safe Walk Up service. For large items we would not recommend using this service. Why not consider using our fantastic 2-man delivery service instead?

Don’t forget to wait for your ready to collect email and check store opening hours and whether the store can offer Drive Thru collection before heading out.

We strongly recommend that you check whether the item will fit in your vehicle before placing your order.
