Part 1:Why Can’t We Play iTunes Music on Sony Smart TV

Let’s firstly learn about iTunes music to get the answer on why you can’t play iTunes music on Sony Smart TV and other non-Apple devices. As known to all, Sony Smart TV is able to play back music files in several different audio file formats including WAV, MP3, WMA and AAC. And if you are going to play music files on Smart TV via USB drive, you could only play back audio files in WAV, MP3 and WMA file formats. AAC files on USB drive couldn’t be played back on Sony Smart TV.
