Sony adds Opera browser to LCD TVs and Blu-ray players

Sony today said it's adding Opera Software's browser to its BRAVIA televisions and Blu-ray Disc players as it looks to give consumers a more "lean-forward" interactive television experience.

"The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices," said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. "Our ability to address key hybrid broadcast-broadband initiatives in numerous markets makes us a natural fit with Sony. By delivering both a global viewpoint and the necessary technology, we are able to stay on the cutting edge of the industry."
