Freeview Play launch for Sony’s 2017 Bravia TVs (XE70, WE6 and WE75 Series) – 4th December 2017

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

We are pleased to announce that Freeview Play* is now also available on Internet connected XE70, WE6 and WE75 TVs.

Firmware versions necessary to enjoy Freeview Play:

  • XE70 Series: firmware update v8.500 (released on 20th November)
  • WE75 and WE6 Series: firmware update v8.201 (released on 20th November)

While you might have noticed the Freeview Play icon has been on your EPG since the release of these firmware updates (if your TV has the latest firmware), full functionality is now accessible.**

The recommended way to ensure you received the above-mentioned firmware updates is by making sure that the Automatic software download setting on your TV is ON. Your TV should then have received the update automatically.

Alternatively, you can download the firmware from the UK support site, and update your TV using a USB flash memory device. For the full list of features and benefits, or to download this firmware, please go to your specific TV product page.

Sony always takes customer feedback into consideration, striving for innovation and overall product quality.
