A massive update for our Smart TV and PlayStation® apps!

Why hello there, dear reader! We’re back with a massive update to our big-screen app, which runs on many Smart TVs and the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The update is available on Sony, Vizio, LG, and Toshiba Smart TVs (see the complete list of supported models).

Without further ado, let’s dive into the new features!

Filtering and Sorting This highly requested feature lets you slice and dice your media to find exactly what you’re looking for, whether it’s movies by Kurosawa, or albums by Miley. You can also quickly toggle “unwatched” if you’re the kind of person who actually watches media instead of just collecting it. And notice those lovely play/shuffle buttons on the left? Use that to shuffle all your music, or all those 60s movies that you just filtered.

Plex Companion You can now easily fling media from other Plex apps to the big screen. Keep the music going when you get home, or keep your cat entertained by flinging mouse videos from your phone right to her TV (your cat does have her own TV, right?). You will need an up to date media server for this feature.

Channels Watch all your favorite online media. Exercise your brain with a TED Talk, or delight in the latest Vimeo Staff Pick.

Extras You can now play movie trailers, along with other movie extras. Also, we’ve added Cinema Trailers mode, which plays trailers before a movie, for that genuine cinema experience without the sticky floors.
