Sony’s A9G Master Series OLED TV has been named “King of TV” in the 2019 Value Electronics annual TV shootout.

This year, Value Electronics, a leading independent audio video retailer in Scarsdale, N.Y., hosted its annual TV Shootout evaluation event in collaboration with CE Week at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC to determine who makes the best TV for 2019.

The Shootout participants and professional experts test, evaluate, and compare picture quality attributes of the latest flagship TVs each year side-by-side and the winner is crowned “King of TV.”

The four TVs competing for the 2019 crown included LG’s OLED65C9PUA, Samsung’s QN65Q90R, Sony’s XBR-65A9G, and Sony’s XBR-65Z9F.
