sony tv and sport

I just purchased a Sony TV and a new Optus plan that included Optus sport. I registered for Optus Sport but I want to know precisely how I can set it up and watch it on my TV?

Re: sony tv and sport

I don't think Optus Sport is available on Sony TVs.

Compatible devices are listed here.

Get a chromecast would be the cheapest way

Re: sony tv and sport

I used my mobile to chromecast to the TV. Works perfectly.

Re: sony tv and sport

@keithinoz thank you for the update. I think the Sony Tv running androidtv OS has Chromecast build-in as standard. So it should work without needing to purchase a chromecast device.

Re: sony tv and sport

I have a Sony Bravia and can see the TV on the Optus Sport ‘cast’ icon ... but when I select it, the tv seems to be about to play it, then nothing... any thoughts?

Hi @JED_Forum  what is the model of the Sony TV? It is connected to the internet? Are you able to cast a Youtube video to it?

Re: sony tv and sport

Ah, I’ve got a Sony KD-65X7500D and I was casting ok from Netflix on my iPhone to test... but YouTube also didn’t work.  I uninstalled the GoogleCast update on the tv and the Optus and YouTube worked again... not sure why the latest update wouldn’t work but the original would?

Re: sony tv and sport

I found the sony android tv can be glitchy at time. Few things can happen with the new update. 

 

1. Internal code changes that might break the content protection codes. 

2. Internal code changes making the code module link broken for other apps(optus, youtube)

3. Failed update, or partial update.

 

If it is working then I would leave it as it is and maybe do an update with the next version or wait until youtube and optus app also have an update too to match with the chromecast update. 

 

I found a separate chromecast dongle is more stable than Chromecast built in. Saying that my Nvidia Shield Chromecast build in is working great. Maybe it is how Sony implementing Android TV.
