So I have free Neon courtesy of VF.

 

Can I watch it on my Sony Bravia by putting an app on the TV or do I have to stream it from my phone (which seems a bit convoluted in these days of simple solutions)?

 

 

 

(The TV is a 2016 model running Android)

According to their website (Ways to watch) the App only works on Samsung TVs since 2013. Guess youll have to stream it to the TV somehow.

I can do that from an Android phone since the TV has Chromecast built in.

 

Is content still able to be in HD etc etc if you do that?

 

 

 

Seems mad that you can't just get the app on the TV in this day and age.

App development for devices, especially TVs and consoles, is time consuming unfortunately, hence why there isn't a native app for many manufacturers TVs yet.

 

 

 

The Google Cast functionality on the Sony Android TV's is not officially supported due to a playback issue with some content. Titles in HD are fine but some SD content doesn't play as well as they should at present. For the best experience, use a proper Chromecast 2 or Chromecast Ultra.
