We’ve never had so much choice when it comes to great TV shows and movies. The challenge is bringing it all together in one place and making it simple to discover and enjoy. That’s where Google TV comes in.

Google TV allows you to quickly and easily access more than 700,000 movies and TV episodes on your TV, all from one place. It also gives you access to more than 5000 apps on the Google Play Store - that’s more than any other smart TV platform. That’s a whole lot of choice.

And perhaps even more crucially, it’s a doddle to use. The built-in Google Assistant and included voice remote mean your wish is Google TV’s command – find what you want to watch simply by talking into the control or directly to your TV (on selected models). And if you’ve got a smart home full of smart gadgets, this control can extend to those devices too. The Sony BRAVIA A84J Exclusive to Curry’s PC World has a built-in mic for a truly hands-free experience. A stunning 4K OLED Screen and Acoustic Surface Audio + will allow you to enjoy your content like you’ve never seen or heard it before.

Whether you want to watch Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, Apple TV, NOW  or a whole host of other streaming services, Google TV has you covered - and it’s available on the latest Sony BRAVIA 4K TVs for 2021. Google TV brings your favourite content from across all your apps and subscriptions, into one organised, easy to navigate menu.

Wondering what to watch? Google TV can help you here too. Google TV delivers you a personalised experience, learning the type of shows and movies you like, and tailoring suggestions based on your watch history. See something you like? Add it to your Watchlist. And you can add to your Watchlist from your phone or laptop, too. 

All out of ideas? Use the power of Google Assistant. Just say “OK Google, find action movies” to be shown tailored recommendations across all your apps. 

And don’t forget your Sony BRAVIA voice remote can control other connected devices, from lights to speakers, all with the power of your voice from the comfort of your chair. And on the A84J this also works hands-free with the microphone built-in the TV so it functions just like a smart speaker.

Thanks to Chromecast and Apple AirPlay, it’s easy to access videos, photos, games and more from your iOS or Android devices on the big screen. You can cast from your iPhone, iPad, Android device, or laptop, straight to the TV - no more worrying about having the right cable or whether your devices are compatible.

So, how do you enjoy Google TV on Sony BRAVIA? Good news, it’s available on all Sony 2021 4K TVs, from the X80J 4K LED all the way to the flagship A90J OLED Master Series and the Z9J 8K Master Series. And while all the Sony models have a voice remote for Google TV voice control, selected sets - the LED X94J Curry’s Exclusive, LED X95J, OLED A84J Curry’s Exclusive, OLED A90J and LED Z9J 8K – have far field microphones built into the frame of the TV meaning you can go hands free. 

Whatever model you choose, Google TV on Sony BRAVIA delivers the ultimate in home entertainment, at your command.
