How to connect your mobile device to your TV via NFC

Use NFC to connect your BRAVIA TV to your mobile device

You can connect your BRAVIA TV and NFC-enabled mobile device just by tapping your device against the TV remote.

You'll need to set up NFC first. Here's a step-by-step guide.

  1. Switch on NFC (near field communication) on your mobile device
  2. Hold the device against the mark on the TV remote for 2 seconds
  3. You should see a confirmation message on the bottom of the TV screen telling you that NFC is set up

For any other NFC-enabled Sony TV

  1. Turn on the TV and press the HOME button on your remote
  2. Select Settings > One-touch Remote Control Setup > Register
  3. Follow the instructions on screen
  4. Switch on NFC on your mobile device

Now your smartphone and TV are prepared, you can connect them. Make sure your device is unlocked first.
