Millennials, rejoice! We just found the perfect Smart TV for your binge-watching needs

Who doesn’t love Friday nights at home, binge-watching your favorite Netflix series while munching on a bucket of popcorn and chips? Just in case you don’t, we found the perfect reason for you to look forward to chill-out sessions in the comfort of your home — the Sony BRAVIA X8000D!

What sets this apart from other Android televisions would be its 4k High Dynamic Range (HDR), color, and clarity which earned it a Netflix Recommended TV status in 2016. Sounds like a technological advancement pre-Black Mirror era, right? This TV also boasts of its voice search function,  mobile app compatibility, and built-in Chromecast that answers all Home Entertainment needs of a modern millennial family.

You’ll be able to mirror movies, series, and music from your smartphone, almost as if it’s a backup remote control. And since you’re already using your smartphone, this TV can bring your apps to life on the big screen! The Sony BRAVIA X8000D comes in two sizes — 43 and 49 inches, both with the same features. It has a wall bracket and a stand to fit your interior design aesthetics.

A Sony-first feature, its TRILUMINOS display ensures that your viewing experience doesn’t get affected by direct sunlight just in case you’d like to continue watching ’til the morning comes. This technology enhances the color saturation on display and also helps reduce color fading for those watching from a different angle. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, the results show lifelike images with fine highlights and details.
