What is the Wi-Fi Direct feature of my TV?

    The Wi-Fi Direct® feature allows audio and video content playback from mobile phones, cameras, and other Wi-Fi Direct devices directly to a compatible TV without the need for a home network connection.

    Wi-Fi Direct and Wi-Fi

     

    If you set up the Wi-Fi Direct feature of your TV, it's a great way to share movies, pictures, and music when friends and family come over using your BRAVIA™TV screen, instead of having everyone pass or crowd around a smaller portable device.

    The Wi-Fi Direct feature supports the following wireless connection methods:

    • WPS Push Button
    • WPS Input PIN Code
    • WPA Key Input

    Note:

    • Your TV may require the latest system software (firmware) update to activate the Wi-Fi Direct feature.
    • The Wi-Fi Direct feature isn't available on all Sony® products, including TVs manufactured before 2011. To see if your product supports the Wi-Fi Direct feature, check the TV specifications or supplied manuals.
