CYBC on Sony/ LG Smart TV.ANy tips?

Postby SKI-preo » Thu Jun 16, 2011 4:48 pm

Apart from obselete stuff on youtube...is there a sensible way to watch CYBC news on either a Bravia Smart TV or LG ST 600 Smart box?

I don't know the specifics of your gear but in general smart TVs fall in 3 categories: Those that offer content from specific websites (no CYBC), those that let you download apps (doubt CyBC created an app), and those who offer a full web browser such as Google TV which currently is the only way to watch CyBC directly from the TV. I know Sony has Google TV build-in some models of their TVs but if your TV had this feature you would probably already know it!

Thanks. I'll have to explore this more.

I think the Sony Bravia Smart TVs in Australia are loaded up with Australian sources and some general sources but I will have to explore this a bit more.

I just got the LG ST 600 Box so its a bit of novelty. I 'll have to explore my Xbox too. Some people are using their Xbox as a Smart TV box.

There are many things you can do but with CyBC the only way is to use a web browser as I don't believe they create apps for smart TVs. If you don't have Google TV or similar then you can build or buy an HTPC and have all the web on your TV. This is what I did a few days ago and it is great! I am mainly using it to watch Netflix and Hulu from Cyprus, but you could use it to watch CyBC!
