The idea of your TV being connected to the internet has been out there for a few years, but now the concept is reality. Manufacturers are offering TVs (and Blu-ray players, for that matter) with Wi-Fi capability to take advantage of the wide variety of content on the ‘net. Learn more about where this trend is going by checking out this blog post about Why the web is TV’s future. Even Google is getting into action, reportedly working with Intel, Sony and Logitech to bring Web software to televisions.
The future is now at ListenUp, which offers Sony Bravia televisions that can connect your home theater to the internet. “Bravia Internet Video,” for example, allows you to “instantly stream a wide variety of movies, TV episodes, videos and music from a large selection of entertainment apps including: Netflix, YouTube, Slacker – the list goes on. You can also personalize your viewing experience by adding information apps to your screen to access the latest local news, weather, sports headlines, even Twitter updates.”
