The blackest of Fridays will soon be upon us, and if you haven’t activated a Google Chrome plugin to save your sanity from an overload of marketing jumping on that bandwagon, I’d say you’re probably in the market for something new and expensive. I’m one of those people, as I’m biding my time and hoping to score a deal on a TV that’s almost as big as my fat head.

There’s no shortage of good stuff to gawk at in this day and age. Samsung’s still has some fantastic tellies, LG’s OLEDs are obscenely thin and Hisense offers plenty of bang for your buck. One brand I’ve missed seeing for a while though? Sony. I’ve always liked their TVs, with their Bravia range being one of my favourite pieces of hardware with which to view broadcasts and DVDs on.

They’ve been missing locally for a while, but if you’re a sucker for brand loyalty, good news! Sony’s finally coming back. Here’s the list of TVs making a return this year, and the features that each one will be throwing at your eyeballs:
