How to perform a software update on your TV

    Updating the TV to the latest software allows you access to the newest features and fixes specific problems.

    IMPORTANT: Read the instructions carefully, or you could end up causing the TV to become unresponsive or require a repair.

    Before you start

    • Your TV must be connected to the internet to receive and install software updates directly. However, if your TV doesn't have internet access, you can also download the update file to a computer, extract the update file to a USB flash drive, and use the flash drive to install the update on your TV. Depending on the model, you may also be able to receive the latest software via broadcast.
    • The steps to update the software differ depending on the menu system on your television. Choose your TV model type below. If you need to confirm your TV model type, refer to the How to check if your BRAVIA TV is a Google TV™, Android TV™, or another TV article.
