Can I use HDMI inputs on A80J without a Google account?


Novice Member

I’m looking at buying the Sony XR77A80J:

According to John Lewis, I need a Google account to use this TV. Can that be true? I don’t want to use the voice remote, apps, or anything like that. I want to connect an Apple TV 4K and all I want the TV to do is switch on, go straight to HDMI, switch off.

Obviously I want the HDR functionality, Dolby Atmos, etc, to function fully. But I don’t want to interact with any Google or Sony software at all.

Thanks in advance.

I set up my A90J as a basic TV, no need for a google account to sign in with, i am using a 2017 Nvidia Shield with it for now, cant be bothered to set everything up until this coming weekend
