Experience YouTube™ as never before
Watching the latest Internet sensation on a smartphone or laptop simply doesn’t come close to the big screen experience. Now with our latest firmware update you can enjoy High Definition videos from YouTube™ in crisp, clear quality on your BRAVIA TV. What’s more, YouTube™ videos are further optimised by the advanced image-enhancing technologies already built in to your BRAVIA TV. From sports clips to music videos, YouTube™ has never looked better.



See the bigger picture
Expanding your social network will take on a whole new meaning too with our new firmware update. Log in to your Facebook™ account and view shared photos and videos in full screen on your TV – so friends and family appear larger than life. Follow any URL links posted by your friends direct from your TV screen, as well as updating your status, sending messages and more.

Let the news follow you
Another feature new to BRAVIA TVs is Twitter Ticker™. Follow a real-time Twitter™ newsfeed scrolling along the bottom of the screen and keep tabs on your favourite tweets without missing a moment of your favourite TV show. You can share Track ID™ results straight to Twitter™ quickly and easily too. Heard a song you like on an advert? Just hit Track ID™ on your remote to find the title and artist, then pass on the results to friends and followers on Twitter™ at the touch of a button. Simple.

Put your laptop to good use
You can already use your smartphone or VAIO keyboard to control your TV and surf the web – and now you can use other laptops too*. From typing a web address to searching for information about the latest movies, it makes entering text on-screen even easier than using your TV remote.

Never miss an update – connect your TV to the Internet
We are always coming up with new and innovative features to enhance your Internet TV experience. So it’s important to make sure the firmware in your TV is up-to-date. The easiest way to stay up-to-date is to connect your TV to the Internet, either with a cable or through a wireless network. Whenever you switch on your BRAVIA TV, you’ll be automatically notified of any available firmware updates.

Firmware updates are also available from the Sony Support website and can be transferred to BRAVIA TVs using a USB memory storage device.
