Vizio Brings Facebook, Twitter, Vudu to Connected HDTVs


It’s nice to see low-cost manufacturer Vizio really pushing the technology expectations of television sets these days. I’m sold on these feaures needing to be a part of the TV, but I’ll hold my judgement until I see them in action. Nonetheless, I am a fan of the qwerty keyboard remote control…at least it’s unique for a television remote.



The VIA Connected HDTVs have integrated 802.11n dual-band wireless and wired networking to access these Internet features. The sets will also work with the Yahoo! Widget Engine, Amazon Video On Demand, Blockbuster On Demand, Flickr, Netflix, Pandora and Rhapsody.
