You can screen mirror your Smartphone and PC to your Sony TV and watch your favorite contents with your family.

Screen Mirroring is a great option to display your phone, tablet, or computer screen on another device screen wirelessly. Sony makes it easy with the help of built-in Chromecast functionality on its Smart TVs.
