SofaPlay Press Release



It’s the only Streaming App you’ll need. Ever.


  • Simple and intuitive Media Streaming to Smart TVs & Media Boxes
  • No configuration needed, no hassle. Just drag and drop your files onto the App.



As many people, we have a so-called “Smart  TV” standing in our living room and have been wondering, why we aren’t really using the “smart” features of it on a regular basis. It’s because getting a video from your Mac to your TV isn’t really convenient. You either have to use USB flash drives or deal with configurations and network streaming. Recent studies confirm our experience with Smart TVs. Watching a video shouldn’t be that hard. So we built an app, it’s called SofaPlay.

SofaPlay allows you to play media files directly from your Mac on the tv. It is designed to take the friction out of media streaming and connects your Mac to your Smart TV. Just drag any media file onto SofaPlay and it will appear instantly on the big screen in front of you. No configuration needed, no hassle. Just drag and drop.

Your Mac is completely controlling and managing your TV and takes care of the streaming. Just lean back on your sofa, get some pop-corn and enjoy a movie, or two.

We are using an industry standard called UPnP Digital Media Renderer (DMR) to make SofaPlay do it’s magic. If a device is supporting this functionality, it will also likely work with SofaPlay.

SofaPlay is available in the App Store. There’s a free lite version in the App Store to test your device.
