BRAVIA Internet Video Link coming to PlayStation 3

bravia video link e1263581565233 BRAVIA Internet Video Link coming to PlayStation 3You may never heard of it but BRAVIA Internet Video LinkĀ is a service provided to many Sony BRAVIA TVs and Blu-ray players.

Well Sony has now announced that the service will be making its way to the PlayStation 3 this year.

The free HD Internet video streaming service gives users content from providers such as YouTube, AOL LLC, Yahoo Inc, Amazon, Netflix and more.

Furthermore, the service includes Yahoo! TV Widgets which features weather reports, stock ticker updates, financial news, Yahoo! Video, Flickr images and more.

Now obviously because it is all free the content will not be quite up to scratch as say the video store, but we really can’t complain when we don’t have to use our wallets.

To give you some sort of perspective, the early BRAVIA TVs required a box that was priced at around $300 when launched a couple of years ago.

Sony are looking to spread the PlayStation Network service across many of its brands, and in return PS3 owners are getting content previously exclusive to Blu-ray players and TVs – with content many people have asked for.

In the future, perhaps we will see other video content through this feature such as Hulu maybe.

No release date has been released, but the sooner the better.
