This year, Sony is going all-out with its BRAVIA 4K and Full HD TVs. To celebrate the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, it's giving away free PS4s and integrating a special 'Football' sound mode that recreates the acoustics of Brazil's stadiums. Here's everything you need to know about the new TVs.

In the early stages of the upcoming IPTV battle, Sony is clearly out in front in Australia. The vast majority of their Bravia TVs have Bravia Internet Video - their IPTV channel - out of the box, and in terms of content, Sony are miles in front of the competition. But if you don't want to have to buy a new TV to experience IPTV, they've also put the feature in their latest range of Blu-ray products.
