Does anyone have experience with Internet TV using a Sony Bluray player with Sony TV or equivalent?
Does it work ok? Thanks.

what do you mena by internet TV?
If you mean the apps that are available on those platforms you are limited to youtube, quickflix, and a bunch of stuff nobody cares about.


youtube is, well, youtube (hope that doesn't need explaining!)
Quickflix is pretty good value I think. Don't expect it to be like sky though. You are paying only $15 a month, not $70-80, so naturally the content will be a lot less.

as for whether they work.. They work fine for me. quality is good. Youtube HD is available and quickflix has quite a bit of HD stuff on Sony Bravia TV/Blu-ray, but not on PS3.

obviously you need a reaosnable broadband connection for the HD stuff to work,  probably in the region of 5Mbps.  I get around 15Mbps and it works seamlessly. never had a problem, even at peak times.

We have Netflix/Hulu (unblock-us), youtube and Quickflix (which we don't use) apps working fine on our Bravia.

yes me too actually. (Netflix is awesome. I beleive it's not illegal to use it, but it takes a little bit of fiddling around with DNS settings etc)
