We have had an exclusive comment from Sony, sadly it is not good news for the UK, for now.
Hi, the agreement was made between Amazon & Sony USA locally. We regret that at this time, there is no agreements yet for EU-continent.^Nada

Sony has announced that some of its Sony Bravia Android TV’s will soon be compatible with Amazon Echo, allowing you to control the TV with your voice via Alexa.
The integration initially will allow:
-Power On / Off
The update will be done via a free automatic firmware update released ‘later this month’ with the USA first then UK. Based on previous updates expect it a lot later than ‘later this month’ for the UK.
However unfortunately the added Alexa functionality is only coming to a few select 4K Sony Bravia Android models:
2017 TV models
2016 TV models
Hopefully they will roll it out to more models later.
For more information here is the official beta information:
