Sony's Bravia HX703: designed for movie lovers - and 2001: A Space Odyssey fans in particular

The line-up comprises seven types of Bravia-branded TV, each available in a number of sizes, taking the total to 19 tellies. They're all fitted with the DVB-T2 tuner and MPEG 4 decoder needed to pick up and present Freeview HD programming.

The range includes the 40in and 46in HX703 (£1200-1500), which are also 3D-capable and sport 200Hz frame interpolation and a high-contrast panel - together, Sony said, just what any serious movie buff is after.

Sony Bravia NX803

Networker: NX803

The 40in and 52in NX803 (£1600-2300) - along with the smaller NX703 (40in and 46in; £1300-1700) and NX503 (32in and 40in; £700-950) - are aimed at internet addicts who want to tune into YouTube and other connected content sources. The screens come with DLNA support and integrated Wi-Fi. They too have 200Hz interpolation and edge LED backlighting.

Sony Bravia EX403

Budget Bravia: EX403

Buyers on a budget are being steered toward the 32in and 40in EX703 (£900-1100), which also have LED backlighting at the edge, but interpolation is knocked back to 100Hz. The TVs can take an optional Wi-Fi adaptor. Smaller versions will also be available: the EX503 (32in, 37in, 40in, 46in, 55in; £700-1700) and EX403 (32in, 37in, 40in, 46in; £550-1000). ®
