4K Ultra-HD Processor X1
Behind a high definition picture is a powerful processor which delivers 4K UHD colour, clarity and contrast. Whatever you are watching, from TV broadcasts, Blu-rays, DVDs or even 4K Internet videos, the picture is boosted to 4K Ultra HD clarity with greater contrast and more lifelike colours.
With Motionflow XR 800Hz, every image on the screen refreshes at a higher rate than normal. Sports and fast-moving action look noticeably smoother, sharper and more natural, with reduced blur and judder.
Your Smart TV has just got smarter with Android.

Compatible with the Sony 43-inch TV is One-Flick Entertainment which enables you to comfortably flick your way through TV schedules, web clips, photos and more on the ultra-responsive touchpad area. The One-Flick Touchpad Remote (sold separately) is even enabled with NFC (Near-Field Communication) so you can share photos wirelessly from your Smart device straight to the TV screen, at a single touch.
The elegant and slim design of the 43” screen blends form and function beautifully. Blending seamlessly into its surroundings, even when mounted on the wall, the Sony TV will look just as good off as it does on.
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TVs sound quality and 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. The Sony HT-CT380 soundbar is the perfect partner for this 43-inch Sony TV. When wall mounting the television, the soundbar can be secured on to the wall. Or alternatively, the soundbar can be positioned infront of the TV screen on a suitable television stand.
