NOTES:

  • The screenshots provided here are for reference only. The actual screen might differ slightly according to your country, model or firmware version.
  • Google Play on the TV only displays apps that are supported by the TV, so apps that are not displayed are not supported at the moment.
  • Bravia Smart TV's are only able to run the catch-up/on-demand apps that are made explicitly available for these models through the Sony's Internet Contents. That's why you cannot install 3rd-party apps from other sources (e.g Google Play store) on Sony televisions that are not Sony Android TVs.
