Manufacturer's Description

Bring stylish entertainment to your home with the black Sony BRAVIA KDL50W705BBU Smart 50" LED TV, featuring superb Smart TV, X-Reality PRO for top-quality viewing and a bass reflex speaker to bring more booming bass to your films.

Smarter viewing

You won’t miss a moment of your favourite viewing with the BRAVIA 50W705. Using the built-in WiFi connection, this Smart TV lets you catch up on all your favourite programmes thanks to the BBC iPlayer and Demand 5 apps, or you can even more to watch using Video Unlimited, Netflix or LOVEFiLM. There’s also a range of content available on the exclusive Sony Entertainment Network.

There are a number of apps available using the Opera Apps System, and you’ll be able to access the internet using the Opera internet browser. You can even stay in touch with friends and family from the comfort of your sofa using the Skype application.

If that isn’t enough for you, this television also includes a built-in Freeview HD tuner that provides you with a range of digital HD channels and radio stations without the hassle of any monthly fees.

Entertainment at your fingertips

With One Flick Entertainment, you’ll be able to enjoy a range of viewing quicker than ever before. Using the new interface, all you need is your thumb to find and launch apps within seconds. This means you can cycle through TV channels, view photos on your network and much more with a simple movement. The unobtrusive menu appears at the bottom of your screen so it won’t disturb what’s currently showing on your TV.

The 50" W705 also includes the TweetView system, which lets you view what people around the world are saying about the programme that you’re watching. Your TV will suggest relevant keywords related to the current programme, or you can enter your own. Tweets will then flow across the bottom of your television screen, making your viewing more social than ever.

Amazing picture quality and bigger bass

With X-Reality PRO technology built into this TV, you can enjoy the very best viewing in your living room with the BRAVIA W705. Whether you’re settling down to a film or streaming a video from your mobile device, this technology analyses the scene to provide you with the perfect image. It compares the scene to a database of images, and sharpens the image and refines detail in nano seconds.

To truly get the best from your entertainment, you need sound that’s every bit as good as the images. With the Bass Reflex speaker and a compact speaker system, you’ll hear everything from crisp high notes to deep and rumbling low notes, treating you to a full range of sound.

Get your head in the game

Perfect for enjoying the biggest football matches, this Sony TV includes the live football mode, bringing you the match day experience from the comfort of your sofa. It automatically adjusts the picture and sound settings to simulate the stadium experience, so you can feel like you’re there watching it.

It also includes access to the latest FIFA World Cup standings, and YouTube videos of memorable World Cup moments, perfect for footy fans.

Making connections

With four HDMI connections to make use of, you’ll be able to connect plenty to your television, whether it’s the latest games consoles or your home cinema kit. View your own content using the USB 2.0 ports on the TV, perfect for connecting external hard drives or USB devices.

Enjoy your smartphone’s content on the large screen using screen mirroring technology, connecting your phone wirelessly before zipping through videos, photos, apps, games and more on your TV.

A design for life

The BRAVIA W705 has a graceful presence in your living room thanks to the high-quality aluminium design, with a slim and elegant stand that can also double as a wall mount.

It also includes an intelligent core which sits below the screen and softly cascades a light below, showing any interaction between you and the television.
