Turn your Android™ cell phone into a remote control for your Sony® Internet TV with Google TV™

by Sarah 05/12/2012

With Mother’s Day coming up, we feel mom deserves to have full control of the remote this weekend and watch whatever she wants. And for those of you not in the mood to watch chick flicks all weekend and try to hide the remote on her, we’re going to tell mom a little trick on how she can turn her cell phone that has the Android 2.1 operating system or higher, into a remote control for your Sony Internet TV with Google TV.

Peg is going to show you how to set this up but before we start Mom, you will need to download and install the Google TV Remote application. It is a free download from Google Play™ (formally known as Android Market™) but please make sure you read their terms before installing. Now let’s get started.
