Sony adds Netflix to its 2012 Bravia TVs and Blu-ray players

Sony Netflix TV

Netflix will be added to the Sony Entertainment Network on April 24th, bringing the streaming movie service to Sony Bravia TVs, Blu-ray players and network media players.

But Sony has also confirmed to us that the update will only apply to 2012 models – Netflix won't appear on older Sony devices.

Netflix costs £5.99 a month for a selection of SD and HD films, which you can watch on a range of devices including your PC or laptop.

The service is already available on LG, Panasonic and Samsung TVs, plus Apple iOS devices, the PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.

Sony already offers its Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited services, which allow users to buy or rent films on a pay-as-you-go rather than subscription basis across a range of devices, including the Sony Tablet S.

The Netflix app will be available on all 2012 Bravia TV, Blu-ray and home-cinema-in-a-box products.

Greg Peters, vice president of product development at Netflix, said: “Adding Netflix to the Sony Entertainment Network, gives consumers an even broader choice of devices to instantly watch unlimited TV programmes and films streamed over the Internet. We’re always looking to provide people with new ways to enjoy Netflix.”

“We’re very excited about the addition of Netflix to our SEN portfolio” said Edd Uzzell, Sony category development manager. “All of our consumer products – whether that is a BRAVIA, VAIO, Tablet or Xperia – are designed to provide the best quality content possible, and having great content providers offers consumers greater choice for their home cinema experience.”
