Sony Bravia Gets Netflix


sony_bravia_d3000 I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  The way things are going, we’ll all soon need a 16 port switches to connect all of our equipment to.

Earlier today, Sony announced that starting this fall the Bravia line of Internet connected TVs will get full access to the Netflix.  Support will also be provided to older Bravia sets that support the Internet Video Link Module.  Just like the current Xbox 360 iteration of Netflix, you won’t be able to browse through movies to add to your queue, but instead have to use your PC.  Not a huge problem for most and I’d have to say that I think that can actually lend a better experience.  I don’t want to browse with my remote.  It’s hard enough scrolling through my whole queue.

I have to wonder how long it will be before either Netflix is in everything and studios actually provide them some good content to stream, or if someone else is going to be able to jump up and compete against them.  If you’re app is included in every TV, is it a monopoly?
