Sony announced on Monday that it will add support for Apple AirPlay and HomeKit  to TVs later this year.

Sony at CES 2019 announced forthcoming AirPlay 2 and HomeKit integration for a handful of TVs, including the upcoming Z9G Series 8K LCDs and A9G Series 4K OLEDs, as well as the X950G 4K LCD unit.

According to a press release, Sony’s Z9G, A9G and X950G will let users stream content — including movies and TV shows from iTunes — from iPhone, iPad and Mac via AirPlay 2. In addition, Apple Music subscribers can stream their favorite tunes to a compatible Sony TV.

AirPlay enables support for multi-room audio and more. Siri integration means you’ll be able to tell Siri to play content on your TV.
