Plex App for Sony television (not Google edition)

by nizmo Specialist on ‎06-10-2014 05:50 PM



Please add Plex to your development list.  I was disappointed to find that this app is offered by other brands but not on Sony TV's.  This is a must have for home media servers.  Thanks.

I have a KD65x9005 and I would really appreciate to have a Plex app on this expensive Smart TV...

Hey guys,


I'm not sure what this "Join the Inspiration" is for when all our requests go unanswered?  I created this thread three months ago in hopes of Sony adding Plex to their Apps list.  Up till today, I haven't heard a thing.  Seems this forum falls on deaf ears.


I've always been a loyal Sony customer with my most recent TV purchase (KDL-70W850B) but believe it's the end of the line for me.  I recently invested in a gaming console and if it weren't for this Plex debacle would have purchased a PS4.  Instead, I am a new happy owner of a Xbox One.  Microsoft doesn't make TV's, but even they understand the value in making their product better.  Here's a prime example with their development of PleXbox:


Maybe I'm wrong and Sony is working on a Plex app, but should at lease let us know so that we can have hope!   I think this brand, once known for quality, will continue to spiral down unless they step up and meet the demands of their customer in staying current with new technologies.  So please Sony, give us and update and make your customers happy!

c'mon Sony! I thought you were number 1 and so I bought a Sony TV just to find there's no Plex app available?

I'm looking to buy a new tv, I would much rather the sony, but plex is pretty important to me, is there any news on this? I might have to go for the samsung without it

Like a poster mentioned before, there's little to differentiate between TVs (some companies even share panel manufacturers) so it really comes down to the interface and software. And that's a category where samsung and lg are way ahead!


Listen to to your customers Sony, open up your platform and get the likes of Plex and 4OD involved. And while you're at it improve the speed of the smart interface in general. The tv is supposed to have a 3 core processor, that's more than my iPad which actually addresses more pixels but the tv stutteres through simple menus.


Sort it out Sony!

Lo de sony ya es una autentica verguenza. Ya no solo que su smart tv sea una autentica mierda comparada con otras marcas, lo triste es que teniendo una peticion de 127 consumidores, no tengan la vergüenza de responder. No confio lo mas minimo en que desarrollen la app, a ver si con un poco de suerte algun desarrollador la crea. lo dicho, vergonzoso comportamiento sony!!!!


The sony and is a real shame. And not only that your smart TV is a real ****** compared to other brands, the sad thing is that having a petition of 127 consumers have no shame responding. No trust in the slightest to develop the app, to see if hopefully some developer creates. foregoing, sony shameful behavior !!!!

Sony do you listen to your customers? This is THE epic thread that you should be very arroused by. Cause either you will not comply with our demands and the company will suffer forever or you will and it will be a sign of this forum usability and many will be grateful. Choose your destiny!

I would also love to see the PLEX app come to non-Google powered Bravia sets.  Specifically the KDL-48W600B.  Great set, but would love to be able to get the full PLEX effect on it.

The Plex app will improve the user experience. I am already disappointed of my 9005a because of lack of support of a real 4k engine (no h265 codec implemented). A basic samusng tv offers now more online services than a high end sony product ?


A friend ask me a week ago some advices before buying a new TV, I had to tell him to go for a samung or a lg and not a sony.

I recently bought a SONY BRAVIA 50W807B build quality and image are really good but I find the software on it some what lacking specially when you compare it against other brands like LG or Samsung, the DLNA interface looks ugly compared to other TV´s with a proper media server support, adding a PLEX app would greatly improve everyone experience with SONY TV's, at the moment i would probably buy my next TV from another brand with better software.

I agree - please add a Plex app on Sony TVs!  I have a KDL48W600B and was very disappointed that there was no plex app.  This is the only thing I'm missing and would be able to get rid of my roku if they had it.

I'm just thinking about buying a new Sony smart TV but I'm so scared about the lack of support of Sony smart TV. Several months have already passed from the post of questions related with new apps on Sony smart TV, but no answer or even a sign of interest have made by Sony. Maybe I change to Samsung!!
