Sony's 2020 LED and OLED TV Lineup Rolling Out With HomeKit and AirPlay 2 Support

Sony today announced pricing and availability for its new 2020 LED and OLED televisions, which it announced at CES in January to support AirPlay 2. Select Sony TVs will also be getting the Apple TV app at some point in 2020, but Sony has yet to confirm a date for that launch.

There are multiple new TVs available to order from Sony, all of which support Apple's HomeKit platform and ‌AirPlay‌ 2. With these integrations, streaming content from your iPhone or iPad to a Sony TV will be possible, and select integrations with Siri will be supported thanks to ‌HomeKit‌.

While most of the new Sony TVs are up for pre-order, some are available now. This includes the 86-inch X950H 4K HDR LED TV for $4,498.00 at Amazon and Best Buy. This set has HDR, Dolby Vision, and IMAX Enhanced modes, and there's also a 49-inch model priced at $998.00 at Amazon and Best Buy.

Additionally, there's the X800H 4K HDR LED TV, which supports 4K content, Dolby Vision, and MotionFlow XR for less blur in fast scenes. In terms of smart TV features, users can control the TV with their voice by connecting to ‌HomeKit‌ and ‌Siri‌, as well as Alexa and Google Assistant. There are numerous models of this TV that can be purchased today.

The rest of the Sony TV pre-orders include the A8H Bravia OLED 4K HDR TVs and the X900H 4K HDR LED TVs. Both of these have models that can be pre-ordered now at select retailers, and shoppers can expect a launch date sometime this summer.

With all the add-ons you can get for a TV (EG AppleTV, BluRay player, etc.), a lot of these features are getting a bit redundant. I wouldn't mind a dumb TV. No AirPlay, no Netflix, nothing, but a 4K HDR screen, and a few HDMI inputs. I can add on what I want.

I agree with you, but follow the money. Since these TVs are running Android, you can bet that Google and the TV maker are both making money off the data collected from these sets. There is no guarantee that a dumb TV would be less expensive. However, you can make these TVs dumb by turning off the wifi. That's what I do.

Think I'll stick with the TCL 6 series, although there is no AirPlay support.

So, I'm curious.

Does supporting AirPlay and the Apple TV app mean that these "smart" TVs are subject to higher security requirements than TVs that don't support them? Does Apple insist on a more secure platform in order to include their services?

The reason I ask is that I've been avoiding "smart" TVs due to security concerns, and wonder if these newer models with Apple support may be more secure.

Remember, Airplay support is one way only. Audio from this TV will not be playing over your HomePod. They have not been able to figure that out, or more likely it is a deliberate "feature". This is true of ALL airplay compatible TV's.


i kinda regret getting the 2018 900f on november.
Aside from being able to use Siri to turn on of off the tV, you are not missing much. Siri cant even control the volume.

Does these new 2020 Sony TV sets have the ATSC version 3.0 tuner? If not, they are so yesterday. I care less what apps they have and the android OS is sucky.
