Will there be a native for Sony Android TV?

Hello,

 

I'm using the casting function to my Sony Android TV. Will there be a fully fledged app for it?

 

Thanks.
Ashley

@Anonymous User there is no app for the Sony TVs. You can up vote the suggestion here, or use one of the number of other devices connected to your TV to watch NOW TV with.

Also Sony has dumped their WebTV OS to join the AndroidTV 5.0 generation in 2015...

So Legacy WebTV OS support has been reduced ... Older Sony HDTV lost Youtube due to No WebTV OS upgrades... Have to use web browser if they can...

Re: How to get now tv on bravia

I thought that a supposed smart TV allow me to download an app to get Now tv directly via the TV.  It has presets for iplayer,5 on demand, and a string of other rubbish pre loaded. It does not have Now tv pre loaded. As for trying to access the net, you could die 3 times over waiting for the TV to connect to the net. It would rather try to walk you into buying another Sony tv are £2.5k before giving access to the net. 

This tv is barely 4 years old and is supposed to be an intelligent tv. It is as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike.  So am I right that I would have to use my now tv box to access the Now tv  service. I thought that it would be able to act as one of the 4 devices permitted to access the Now tv  service.  Some hope! !🙈

Re: How to get now tv on bravia

@Anonymous User  The only Smart TVs which currently have a Now TV app are manufactured by LG.

 

The easiest way to get Now TV on your television would be with a Now TV box.  But there are several other devices and games consoles which would have the app.

 

A full list of supported devices is here.



If this has solved your issue please mark this as an accepted solution.

Re: Will there be a native for Sony Android TV?

Im trying to get ananswer on this but @Anonymous User giving me the run around.. because its After hours most likely... 

 

Are they likely to do this when they have a Brand new under powered £15 box, thats a clone of Roku 3  due for release in August.. NO... but I wanted a confirmed NO...

Would it completely smeg of a user that just spent £15 on a box they did not need if the nexus player and android TV 5.0 HDTVs got an app in...

September..  Yes... that would smeg people off...

October... may be it would be bad timing

November ... Yea that would be long enough...

 

But untill @Anonymous User is allowed to say a YES it will be a NO... they have thier own NowTV mark 2 box to worry about...

your Stuck using crappy phones to controll it and use google cast... Even if they just released an app with HD TV landscape  mode on android app...

@AshleyCollins there's no straight answer for that question at the moment unfortunately. We don't currently have plans for an app, but that's not to say there won't be one in the future.

 

Whenever there's news about new supported devices, we share it on the forum, so you'll find out here first.

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

Surely it wouldnt take much to sort out considering you already have a mobile/tablet app?

As @Anonymous User mentioned, no plans yet but you'll never know what may happen in the future 🙂
