Sony’s 2020 4K HDR TVs are up for pre-order starting at $700

Sony offered up a slew of new TVs for 2020 when it revealed its lineup at CES 2020, and now we have the first set of prices and pre-order information for two of these new models: The X800H 4K HDR LED TV and the higher-end X950H 4K HDR LED TV.

Here’s how the new models, sizes, and prices stack up:

  • 85-inch: $2,700
  • 75-inch: $1,800
  • 65-inch: $1,200
  • 55-inch: $1,000
  • 49-inch: $750
  • 43-inch: $700

You can pre-order the X800H from Amazon right now, or from other authorized Sony retailers.

Sony didn’t say much about the X800H at the show in Las Vegas, but it’s a highly capable TV. It uses Sony’s 4K HDR processor X1 and 4K X-Reality Pro technologies which improve how 4K HDR images are displayed and also provide excellent upscaling of non-4K material.

Both Dolby Vision and HDR10 are supported for maximum HDR compatibility, and Dolby Atmos is supported, too. All of Sony’s 2020 TVs are Android TVs, which means they have Google Assistant onboard and accessible via the voice button on the included smart remote. You can Chromecast to the TV using an Android device, but Apple AirPlay 2 means Apple device owners get the same screen-sharing abilities, too.

As a smart TV, it’s also fairly impressive. Beyond the hundreds of apps supported by Android TV, there’s also Amazon Alexa compatibility which lets you take control over the TV’s functions using an Echo smart speaker or any other Alexa-powered device. With Apple’s HomeKit, the X800H can be added to a variety of automated functions using HomeKit’s scenes.

Like the X800H, you can pre-order the X950H through Amazon, too. The X950H will, of course, be available in additional sizes, but Sony says it won’t be announcing pricing or availability until a later date.

The X950H series definitely takes performance up several notches from the X800H. As Sony’s top-performing 4K LED TV, it uses the company’s X1 Ultimate picture processor — the same chip used in its 8K models. X-tended Dynamic Range Pro takes care of making HDR images look their best — with Dolby Vision and HDR10 supported.

The X950H also benefits from Sony’s acoustic multi-audio design, which places tweeters behind the screen — but at a higher point — to give a more realistic sound for elements like dialog. Dolby Atmos rounds out its audio chops.

Just like the X800H, all of the smart TV features are here, including Android TV, Google Assistant, Alexa-compatibility and both AirPlay 2 and Apple HomeKit, but the X950H takes this further with hands-free Google voice commands. No more reaching for the remote to ask for your next Netflix show.

It’s still early in 2020, so you can expect that we’ll get more Sony 2020 TV model pricing and availability details in the coming weeks. When that happens, we’ll update this post so you have it all in one place.

TCL’s 2023 mini-LED 4K TVs are shockingly affordable
TCL Q Class QM8 mini-LED 4K TV.

TCL has finally revealed its full lineup of TVs for 2023, and it includes a new flagship that is sure to give Samsung and Sony some sleepless nights. The 98-inch QM8 isn't TCL's first 98-inch TV, and it isn't the first 98-inch TV to sell for $10,000 or less, but it is the first mini-LED-powered 98-inch TV to sell for such a low price. Samsung's only 98-inch 4K, mini-LED TV -- the excellent QN90A -- costs 50% more at $15,000. Even the 85-inch model, at $2,800 is surprisingly affordable compared to similar mini-LED TVs.

Sony releases its 2023 TV prices with one very big exception
Sony A80L 4K OLED TV.

If you're in the market for a new TV and you've been patiently waiting to see how much Sony is asking for its 2023 models (and when you can buy them), today's the day you find out. Unless of course, you've been waiting to see what Sony wants for its latest flagship, the A95L 4K QD-OLED. In that case, we're the bearers of bad news: That model, in all three of its planned sizes (55-, 65-, and 77-inches,) is still MIA, and Sony hasn't indicated when that will change.

YouTube TV finally gets the 4K Plus plan’s price right
YouTube TV 4K Plus channel.

The price of the 4K Plus add-on for YouTube TV always has been a bit weird. Technically the add-on has been $20 a month since its launch in mid-2021, but subscribers have always gotten the first year of service for half that. And that will remain true come April 2023, when the YouTube TV base plan goes up to $73 a month and the add-on changes price to $10 a month, with the first year of service at $5 a month.

That's a much more palatable price for an add-on that's absolutely an extravagance.
