Application to mirror the screen of your iPhone or iPad to any Sony Smart TV. No wires and no additional hardware needed! You can mirror any app on your iPhone or iPad to your Sony TV.
This works on any Sony Smart TV from the 2012 models onward.
In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 1 and 3). So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming.
However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more!
How the app works:
1. Make sure that your iPhone or iPad is connected to the same local network as your Sony TV. Don't use multiple VLANs, a VPN or subnets.
2. Launch the Mirror for Sony TV app. It will start looking for your Sony TV(s) on your local network. When a TV is found, please select it. When you use this app for the first time, depending on your model Sony TV, the TV might ask you to "allow" the connection. In that case, take your TV Remote Control and press OK to allow the connection from your TV to your iPhone or iPad.
3. Turn on notifications for this app. We will not spam you, but we will use this to let you know if your TV is working correctly or not. So please, please allow it, otherwise when things don't work as they should, you are left in the dark.
4. Click on Start Mirroring to start mirroring on the TV that is currently selected. After that, you can just go to any other app on your iPhone or iPad and the mirroring just continues to run.
5. To stop mirroring, there are two options. (1) click on the red top bar that you will see on your iPhone or iPad. (2) Go to the Mirror for Sony TV app and click on Stop Mirroring.
Limitations and known issues:
- When screen mirroring from Safari, there is no audio. We advice to use the Puffin Web Browser, Dolphin Web Browser or iCabMobile instead of Safari.
- Sometimes audio from other apps is not playing. In this case, start a screen mirroring session, then open the app you want to mirror. If there is no sound, just close the app you are mirroring and re-open it in the same mirroring session.
Some apps don't allow screen mirroring. For instance Netflix: when you start screen mirroring when running the Netflix app on your iPhone or iPad, the TV screen will turn black. This is a choice that Netflix made, there is nothing that we can do about that.

Bought this to connect to Sony Bravia TV. Installed app on iPhone and on TV. After repeated efforts, didn’t work: no mirroring. The reason given by the app for the error was “null.” Emailed customer support through the app and, despite their supposedly having my diagnostic information from the app, got a boiler plate email telling me things like I have to move my router to the same room as the TV (even though it works fine for everything else) and run a cable between TV and router. Sure, I’m going to spend hours rewiring my whole perfectly functional system to SEE if your crummy $4 app will work then. The app is junk. I just bought a lightning to HDMI cable on Amazon. Do that instead and save yourself the $4 and the frustration.
Works great for online work out videos! Just a bit digital. Easy to set up and use.
App does not work!!!!
I have a newer Sony Smart TV. Followed all instructions. Does not work!
This app is amazing and their technical support is even better!! I had some configuration problems on my TV but their team walked me through every step even though it was 1:00 am!! They were very patient and friendly and I just couldn’t be happier!
Really poor quality
I’m very satisfied with this application. It works perfectly. I don’t have any complaint about it. Highly recommend to everybody.
Not good for casting video or app demos. Yes, It will mirror your screen to your tv, but with TONS of lag that makes it almost unusable for anything but photo slideshows.
Makes two g’son’s lacrosse games so excellent on my big tv screen.
Waste of money. App doesn’t work. Want my money back
The lag isn’t the 1-2 seconds as stated. It can be 10+. Incapable of playing high definition movies (just freezes). Waste of money. Save your $8
I only needed it for Foxtel Go & it doesn't work. Would have been good to know that before we bought it. The creators of this app must know, just don't pass on the information. Not happy.
It would help if you could see apps supported (or not supported) “BEFORE” paying to download your app. Foxtel Go, has audio but no picture when mirrored on to TV. Reading it in FAQs “after” I’ve paid and downloaded your app, not good enough!!
I’ve just purchased this app to go with my brand new Sony Bravia TV to use on my Ipad and its not working. I got it to connect once and it wanted to record my photos?????? I’m not sure why. I thought it was supposed to be a screen mirroring app, so I am a bit confused. I am not sure where they would be kept on my TV? Now I can’t get it to connect again and I have tried for 30 minutes. Very disappointed in this app. There should be a limited trial version for a month, to see if it will work and then after a month if you like it and it works you can buy it. 😤😤
Hey guys, how do I get sound to transfer to tv also? Currently only video working.
Working fine but too slow response and crashes frequently
Sound is coming from tv after mirror but no screen.. it’s blank.. they r not doing refund.. send thm 4 e mails and spoke on Facebook too
There should be a free trial as there’s no way for us to know which apps support screen mirroring and which ones don’t. For me it was a waste of $ because I’ll never use this app again. A one week or one day free trial could solve this problem
It keeps crashing on my iPad mini 4
I have made this mistake please you don’t do it. Worthless app has massive delays between picture and audio and phone... Frustrates me that I bought this
Don’t fall for this cheap app, it doesn’t even mirror the screen. It records your screen and mirror it in a delayed format that forces the TV to stop responding. No matter what you try you’ll keep having the same issue. I’m using SONY A9F 65” and it kept giving this issue.
People don’t know what they are missing. I did have a issue at first, but that was probably my fault I did get in touch with the help center with the app and they were quick on the chat through facebooks app. And boy did they work their tail off because of me. But it turns out to be a sweet app. Love it. I would do it all over again. And a big thanks to the support team that helped me through it.
The app was easy to install and when I opened it it showed my TV. When I clicked on my TV it said it was connecting and kept trying to connect. After a minute or 2 I closed it to start over and it wouldn’t show my TV. I’ve gone through all the quick “fixes” and it still won’t show my TV again. I wish I had read the reviews before downloading.
I can get my iphone screen to show but it will not display HBONow, Vudu, Netflix, Amazon Prime or movies from The App Store. All apps load a black screen (says Cannot Play Movie-The connected device is not authorized to play protected movies) and sound doesn’t not mirror to my Sony. Sound only plays through the phone with a black screen. What a waste of $5.00! Very disappointed.
Please Don’t Get It. I wasted my 5 bucks.
Streaming crashes every time on my iPhone 6s while trying to stream to my Sony Bravia. App sees my tv but crashes when I start broadcasting. I want a refund.
Very simple install and easy to use. Excited to watch my shows on the big screen instead of my iPad!
Your phone has to be on the TV’s wifi to make this work, so any apps on your phone that require the internet to work won’t be able to connect to the internet... because they are connected to your tv. This isn’t a direct mirror of your phone’s screen. It records what’s on your screen and then broadcasts it to the tv through the app on a small delay. About the only thing it’s good for is blowing up pictures you’ve taken on your phone on the tv. Misleading, can be tricky to set-up, and if I knew what I know now, I’d have kept my money.
This is a great app but please put in a full screen feature
Contacted their Facebook support and was asked to send a diagnostic. Just a pond downloading this or delete and move on.
