Sony makes a big showing at CES every year, and 2013 is no different. This year Sony is showing off a bunch of new television sets and most interestingly it's showing off several new 4K UHD TVs that fall into the X900A series. The series of televisions includes a 65-inch and a 55-inch model in addition to the existing 84-inch $24,999 high-end offering.
Exact pricing on the 65-inch and 55-inch versions of the TV isn't offered, but you can bet that these will be incredibly expensive. Sony uses LED backlighting for rich authentic color and superb red and green reproduction. The TVs have front facing speakers and feature integrated Wi-Fi.
The integrated Wi-Fi allows the TV to access smart functionality without needing any cables. Sony has also announced that this spring it will be releasing a line of Mastered in 4K films including The Amazing Spider-man, The Karate Kid, and Taxi Driver. Sony also plans to launch a 4K UHD video distribution service in the US this summer.
