If so, you are in the right place, in this article, we will throw quick tutorial up on how to get MOV files and Sony Smart TV to play nicely.
Nowadays it is quite convenient and easy to put movies on USB flash drive and play on Sony TV via USB port, but there is a catch, the file formats support for USB compatible Sony TVs are relatively narrower, and MOV is not on the support list.
