There’s cause for celebration this week, as Sony was awarded Best Audio-Visual Brand in 2015’s Which? Awards beating competition from Samsung, LG and Panasonic.

The awards noted Sony’s consistent quality across its AV offerings, with half of the TVs tested in 2014 receiving Best Buy recognition. It also considered Which?’s smart TV privacy research, where Sony was praised for offering users clear upfront warnings regarding tracking & for not bombarding them with advertising.

Since its launch in 2007, the Which? Awards each year have recognised the UK’s best customer focused businesses and it certainly comes as a significant achievement as unlike other industry accolades the win was determined solely by Which? experts after they trawled through the results of this year’s investigations, surveys and test results.
