What is Remote Play?
Remote Play will enable users to stream their PS4 gameplay to their PS TV system via the network, freeing up the television for other uses. Sony Computer Entertainment expects that most PS4 titles will support Remote Play unless the title requires a special peripheral such as PlayStation®Camera during gameplay. Furthermore, Blu-Ray Disc titles and DVDs cannot be played, and content from some video services cannot be played either.
When will Remote Play work best?
Remote Play will work best when the PS TV system is located within close proximity to a Wi-Fi AP (access point) where the PS4 system is connected. We also recommend that PS TV be connected to the local area network via an Ethernet cable, and that the PS TV system be within close proximity to the Wi-Fi access point so the connection is free of interference.
