Re: WiFi Tvs

from what i've read i think you need the sony one - however i'd be tempted to buy a blu ray player with built in wifi instead at £70 goes a long way towards a better player 


for example i ve just bought the sony 37ex403 and hard wired it as my wireless box is in the same room - the tv lacks for example bbc iplayer which to me was the only one i really wanted - so bought the 370 to go with it and bbc iplayer is fantastic on that and read somewhere that both itv and ch4 catch up channels are to be added this summer


you maybe be annoyed at the limited tv services unless sony has plans to update those with iplayer etc - not ready anything anywhere to confirm it yet

Re: WiFi Tvs

C5's catch-up service is an imminent addition to Bravia Internet Video and I know that talks for iPlayer, ITV Player and C4 are at advanced stages.

There is also a FiFA BIV service going live (which will run to the end of this year) and content from the Berlin Philarmonic.

I will shortly be leaving the Sony fold (more about that another time) so won't have access to this information in the future.

Agree with matengawhat BTW.

Bravia Internet Video is the same on every Bravia that has it and each model will have access to the same content.

matthewpiano:... I know that talks for iPlayer, ITV Player and C4 are at advanced stages.


Thanks for the info.  Been looking for news on the other catch-up services for a while.
