This brings the benefits of catch-up TV and internet video to Australians who may have recently purchased a TV that is not IPTV-enabled. They can now enjoy the best of both worlds – the picture quality that Blu-ray delivers and the convenience of TV on your terms.

The BRAVIA Internet Video channels can be accessed through the XrossMediaBar interface on the Blu-ray players or Blu-ray home theatre systems and viewed on most HD TVs. There are currently 19 live channels to choose from, with Yahoo!7 and SBS the latest additions.

Sony’s Blu-ray home theatre systems are Full HD 3D, allowing viewers to watch their favourite movies and special event broadcasts in 3D or playback high definition Blu-ray 3D content on their 3D capable television.

The black and glossy range offers the finest home entertainment experience available. All models are DLNA compatible with a wireless LAN and users can also connect their iPod or other compatible storage devices via the integrated USB port for playback of music, movies or photos.

The top of the range BDVE970W features four 5.1 inch full-tall boy speakers to ensure a good home theatre experience. For those with limited space in the home, the BDVE870 has semi-tall speakers with satellite surround, and for those looking for an affordable and compact home theatre system that does not compromise on sound quality, the BDVE370 is the ideal solution. The new range of slimline Sony Blu-ray players offer a feature set to suit every budget and home entertainment set-up.

For those looking to upgrade from DVD players and experience the Full HD resolution that Blu-ray offers, the BDPS370 provides an affordable option designed to complement a full high definition TV. Alternatively, for those eager to discover the possibilities of Full HD 3D, the BDPS470 or BDPS570 can be paired with a 3D Full HD LCD TV for the ultimate at-home 3D viewing experience. The BDPS570 also features built-in WiFi, allowing users to connect to BRAVIA Internet Video without worrying about cables.

All three models in Sony’s new Blu-ray player range feature quick three second start-up, which means users will be enjoying the benefits of Blu-ray in no time. A USB input allows easy playback of photos, movies and music, and users can also conveniently control their Blu‐ray player with their iPod/iPhone by downloading the free Blu-ray remote from the Apple App Store.
