    Sony sell a bracket to do it. It has a pro, and two cons:

    Pro: It allows the screen to tilt a bit.

    Cons: It adds a few CM between the screen and the wall, and it costs a couple of hundred quid.

    Well, given that I don't need the tilt, and that I want the telly as flat to the screen as possible, I tried something else.

    Actually, it's a tip that I got off someone from eBay, so can't take the credit, but it works and I thought I'd share it...

    What you do is:

    - Unscrew the back plate off the table top stand.

    - Drill several holes in it (I did eight). Countersink them for the best fit.

    - Then fix the plate to the wall using good wall anchors. You also need to
    have a few mm of packing behind each hole, as there needs to be a small
    gap behind the plate. I just used a bit of folded up builders band behind
    each hole, but a few washers or a thin bet of wood would do too.

    It's great. Zero cost, and because it's closer to the wall it looks much
    better than using the proper Sony stand. And the great thing is that even
    if you need to switch back to the table top stand in the future, the holes
    you've drilled are completely hidden.

    Perfect!
