Sony reveals new 4K TV prices and they aren’t as expensive as you might think

Sony announced its shiny new lineup of TVs back in January at the CES technology show in Vegas and now we finally know how much these new televisions will cost. Perhaps the biggest surprise is the starting price of its new X70 4K TV which is clearly aimed at the masses. Unlike some new goggle boxes, this latest TV starts from just £599 for the 43-inch model which makes it sound pretty affordable.

For your money, you’ll get a 4K X-Reality PRO LCD display, aluminium design and plenty of smart features.

Sony says its X70 offers a no-frills smart TV experience with a built-in Internet browser and one-click access to YouTube and Netflix apps.

If that sounds a little basic then you can upgrade to Sony’s XH81 or XH80.

Both of these TVs boast Sony’s 4K HDR Processor X1, which uses advanced algorithms to cut noise and boost detail.

The XH81 and XH80 models also support the Dolby Vision HDR format which bring better highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colours to your content.

In the sound department, a newly-developed X-Balanced Speakerallows high quality sound in an ultra-thin TV design, while Dolby Atmos compatibility brings space and realism to the audio.

You’ll also find the Google Assistant tucked inside for voice control and these TVs are powered by

the Android TV platform with Google Play Store and Chromecast built-in,

This should offer users access to plenty of extra content and services plus there’s Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit compatibility.

Prices for the XH80 start from £649 with the XH81 starting from £699.

The news of these prices comes as Sony has also announced a big update to some of its most recent TVs.

The Japanese technology firm has announced that it is releasing the Disney+ app on their televisions which means fans can get instant access to this service without needing the annoyance of an extra streaming device.

Sony says that, as of this week, the Disney+ application is available on select Sony BRAVIA Android TVs in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland.

If you’re not aware, Disney+ offers hundreds of movies and shows for a £5.99 per month fee.

For your money, you’ll get access to a swathe of films and exclusive content such as Star Wars: The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and The World according to Jeff Goldblum.

There’s also movies from Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar with some content beamed in full 4K at no extra costs and four people can binge at once.
