Sony TVs to Play Internet Video

Sony Corporation has announced it will enable most of its new televisions, including high-definition flat screens, to play video from the Internet.

The company, which unveiled this plan at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, said that the drive to combine Internet and other digital video with traditional devices was part of a bid to showcase its four strategic growth areas, including video gaming, digital imaging, high definition, and mobile products.

Going further with this move, Stan Glasgow, President and Chief Operating Officer, Sony Electronics, unveiled the company's first Internet video system. Glasgow announced that starting this year, the majority of new Sony televisions, starting with several 'BRAVIA' flat-panel LCD TVs, would accept an attachable module that can stream broadband high-definition and other Internet video content with the push of a remote control button.
