Sony Bravia KDL50W656 LED HD 1080p Smart TV, 50" with Freeview HD

Product information

The W65 is packed with technology to make everything you watch clearer, smoother and more full of life. It has some unexpected extras too, enabling you to seamlessly integrate your smartphone or tablet into the entertainment experience. This TV can also connect through Wi-Fi, allowing you to enjoy a world of apps and catch up TV services like BBC iPlayer. You’ll also get more from your Blu-rays with Full HD playback and Dolby sound technology.

Key benefits:

  • Warmer colours and enhanced contrast - X-Reality PRO adds an extra dimension of image clarity to everything you watch. Drawing on a database of visual information, it analyses and enhances every image, it’s especially good with faces and skin tone.

  • Screen mirroring lets you connect your smartphone or tablet wirelessly to your TV - then enjoy your photos, videos, apps, web pages and games in super-size on the big screen. Just use your smartphone to swipe, enlarge, move and select.

  • Can’t find anything to watch? Use built-in Wi-Fi on your TV to access the Sony Entertainment Network and stream content from an ever-expanding catalogue of HD movies, music and TV channels. It offers a web browser too, plus apps like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Skype.

  • Enjoy a huge range of free digital TV and radio channels, including HD programmes, without subscriptions through integrated Freeview HD. There’s no contract and no need for a set-top box or satellite dish. It’s all easily accessible using just one remote control and your external TV aerial. To watch Freeview HD broadcasts you’ll need to check that you can receive it in your area.

  • Dynamic Edge LED backlighting dims and brightens specific areas of the screen for enhanced contrast and more natural colours.

  • With TV SideView, you can use your smartphone or tablet to learn more about what you’re watching, like cast and episode info. Discover related content or tweet about the show. And control your TV too.

  • With Motionflow XR 200Hz sports and other fast moving action looks smoother and sharper.

  • The TV's integrated stand doubles as a wall-mounting bracket, so there's no need to go out and buy one. Please note, this TV is not compatible with other, external brackets.

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Q & As

Sony Bravia KDL50W656 LED HD 1080p Smart TV, 50" with Freeview HD 5 5 7 7
EXCELLENT This tv is amazing. this is my first flat screen tv and it is doing a great job. very easy to set up, great quality picture. some said the sound quality isint good but it is ok. I dont see any problem. on the whole great TV. absolutely love it. 19 March 2014
Sony TV Exactly what I wanted, easy to set up, easy to use. Looks great. 05 February 2014
Excellent product, usual SONY standard This TV is superb. The build quality is first rate and note that the (extremely narrow) silver bezel actually is brushed metal and not plastic. Overall the TV has a real quality feel to it. I haven't played with the picture settings yet, but can't see much need - the picture on HD channels and Bluray is simply stunning, straight out of the box. Highly recommended. 23 January 2014
Great quality item This is a lovely looking TV, with the thin fame it looks almost like a window. The picture quality is fantastic, Smart TV is easy to use. 17 December 2013
Superb TV - Love it !! I've always bought Sony televisions for about the last thirty years, and this 50" Bravia reminds me why. Setup could not be easier, I even had it communicating wirelessly to our internet in less than a minute, and I didn't even look at the instructions once! It's light, remarkably so for a TV of this size, and can easily be lifted by one person. Picture quality, especially in HD TV or with a Blu Ray disc, is nothing short of stunning and the almost "edgeless" design makes it look as if the picture is floating in air. If there was a sixth star, this TV would get it. Perfect. 17 December 2013
Brilliant! this is brilliant, the delivery and installation by JL team was very efficient. Th TV is superb, the quality is incredible and would have no doubt in recommending this tv. I chose this following advice from JL sales guy in Cardiff. So glad he steered me away from the other options. Purchased the Blue Ray and sound bar too. 17 December 2013
Great picture, wide variety of connections & easy to use/set-up It was much more than I expected. Yes, I knew what the size was going to be, but in place, watching HD TV & movies it is quite breathtaking. It has a wide variety of in/out connections & I currently have it connected to my Hi-Fi systems through the optical digital sound out connector & back in via HDMI. It is so light that it can be lifted by 1 person and the arrangement whereby the stand can also be used to hang it on the wall is well thought out and convenient. 16 October 2013
