Sony Offers Up Bevy Of Super Bowl Promos On TVs, Home Audio Items
Sony is offering special savings on select 2021 4K Bravia and KD series OLED and LED-LCD TVs in time for the Super Bowl.

To help you get started, we’ve included links below to the models and limited time specials available through Amazon. If they run out you can try elsewhere. The deals will also be available through many authorized Sony dealers and Sony.com.
Check links regularly for the latest pricing and remaining availability information.
Sony models in Sony’s Bravia XR class feature advanced gaming support features, including HDMI 2.1 compatibility, with up to 4K/120fps high refresh rates, generic Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and e-ARC, supporting higher resolutions and high dynamic range (HDR). The number of inputs with the highest level of support will vary by model series.
In addition, cord-cutters will find that all Bravia XR series TVs include tuners for the new ATSC 3.0 NextGenTV stations that are gradually going live across the country.
Sony has also updated the smart TV platform in 2021, offering the new Google TV OS supporting a more robust and easy to use overlaying user interface that rides on top of the Android TV platform. Google TV has been described as offering movie and TV show recommendations right up front, instead of focusing on a more app-centric approach.
Most importantly, televisions in the Bravia XR class all incorporate Sony’s latest Cognitive Processor XR optimized for full-array LED LCD TV or OLED display technologies. The processing brings an improvement on the X1 Ultimate picture and sound processor from last year. In addition to AI processing enhancement it adds Cognitive Intelligence to better analyze both incoming pictures and sound to help the advanced processing engine present an experience better suited to human perception for a more emotional result. In general, this means better brightness highlights, shadow detail, more impactful contrast highlights and more natural and emotion-inducing color reproduction.
Sony said the system was developed to create something that is “both faithful” to the content creator’s vision, as in previous years, and more beautiful and exciting to the experience of the viewer watching it.
Interestingly, the Bravia XR processor has been developed in association with the Sony Pictures team to power a new 4K/HDR streaming platform, called XR Core. This will present specially enhanced movies and shows in 4K and HDR with Ultra HD Blu-ray quality 80 Mbps bitrates and “lossless quality” using new PureStream technology. The forthcoming new streaming platform also sends to BRAVIA XR sets special content mastered for the IMAX Enhanced System with DTS HD surround sound presented as close as possible to way the content creators want it to be seen in super widescreen IMAX theaters. The service now carries the best of Sony Pictures’ newest releases along with the studio’s “all-time classics,” plus it will include some 100 IMAX Enhanced titles with IMAX remastered pictures and sound.
