Sony Bravia TVs and Blu-ray Disc Player add streaming from Netflix

Netflix members can now instantly watch movies and TV episodes streamed from Netflix directly to TVs via Sony BRAVIA Internet Video-capable HDTVs and the Sony Network Blu-ray Disc Player. Sony has added the Netflix service to these products through a software update. Specific Sony models now available to instantly stream movies and TV episodes from Netflix include the Sony BRAVIA TV W5100, Z5100, XBR9, and XBR10 series in 40-inch, 46-inch and 52-inch screen sizes; the Sony N460 Network Blu-ray Disc Player; and Sony's BRAVIA Internet video link module when used with compatible BRAVIA TVs.

  1. And yet no fix for Silverlight's lack of v-sync support in the foreseeable future.

  3. Any chance of ever adding Panasonic Blu Ray players (Viera Cast) to those able to stream movies from Netflix - I can only access Amazon movie streaming at this time.

  4. Any timeline on when a Widget for Samsung TV's will be created? Pleaseeeeee.

  5. I'm streaming Netflix content to my 52z5100. The problem I'm having is that my internet speed can't support HD content without serious audio/video sync problems and buffering delays. Non HD content is fine. The issue is that I can't tell Netflix to explicitly not attempt to download in HD. Apparently it tries to determine the appropriate speed and thinks I have enough bandwidth for HD... I don't.

  6. Second the Panasonic support comment. The hardware is already there, it would be great if the two would work together.

  9. While on the topic of streaming - a great way to add to your instant queue if you have an iPhone is with the Leonard Maltin Movie Guide app. New lower price is nice too. This link takes you to it's page in iTunes: www.tinyurl.com/iPhoneMovieGuide

  11. I understand your desire to increase your methods of distribution by adding more devices, but if you want your customers to be happy try putting more focus on keeping your movies on instant watch. My family is taking an "at home" vacation the first week of December so I sat down to set up my queue. Whole genres are dropping off at the beginning of the month, whats with that?

  17. Consider this another vote for adding Netflix support to Viera Cast-equipped Panasonic blu-ray players.

  18. Why would Microsoft create a player (Silverlight) that...
    A. doesn't support video (no v-sync)
    B. works better on their competitors operating system (Apple)
    C. works better on their competitors browser (Firefox)

    It just seems so back-asswards

    And why would Netflix associate themselves and their reputation with such a company?

    Oh yeah. Money.

    I agree with Bruce & the others. Please bring it to Panasonic! I don't even use the Amazon on Demand. The prices are too high when I already have a Netflix subscription.

    Why have user ratings dropped from the summary pop-up boxes. Now I only see my best guess. I liked seeing both like it was before.

  26. I wanted to leave a comment for Netflix in general, but it really does tie into this streaming discussion: when will we have more availability of titles on Watch Instantly? Netflix seemed to really launch out of the gate with this new option a year or more ago and yet it still sits in stagnation with only a fraction of titles available.

  31. Echoing the call for Vieracast integration. I've have two Tivo HDs, and a Samsung BD-P1600 w/ Netflix integration. The Tivos just can't cut it. They are plugged in via Cat6 ethernet to a router getting 40mb down/10 mb up (Docsis 3.0) and the Tivo butchers it, conks out, etc., while a friend's Roku box looks great on the same connection. Samsung BD-P1600 works pretty well too.

    Anyway - I'm abandoning hope for the Tivo streaming, please bring it to Vieracast.

  34. Got booted while watching streaming movie @ about 8:30p.m. EST and haven't been able to access any others Sony TV. I can access other internet content through the TV and checked bandwidth with computer on network 22MB/sec. It gets as far as "checking link speed" and nothing. This happened several days ago. Is this "a work in progress situation?" or is everything fine on your end?
    Thank you in advance.

  43. This is good and all, but I have found that the quantity of movies available for on-demand is really, really lacking.

    After I finish watching a few shows, I'm going to cancel my membership. Many of the movies, documentaries, etc, I want isn't available to watch instantly. And this is why I joined Netflix!

    What a shame, becasue watch instantly is really a great idea. It's the content that's making me turn it off.

    So much for the money spend on a Roku box...

  53. I find it interesting that Netflix say they stream to 50 States (which means the none contiguous Alaska and Hawaii is included) and Washington, D.C., but yet they do not stream to, or allow instant viewing in, the U.S. Virgin Islands, a significant part of the United States. No passport is required to enter the U.S. Virgin Islands from the mainland just as it is not required to enter any other State or Washington, D.C. It has representation in the Congress. Its men and women have fought in all its wars since 1917 and continues to be highly represented in the military, with boots on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan. It pays U.S. taxes and vote in all primaries. It has all the rights of mainland residents and have to answer to all federal laws as do all U.S. citizens. So, why does Netflex discriminate against these citizens in the U.S. Virgin Islands, implying that they are foreigners, and in doing so, have justified that licensing prevent them from streaming "outside the 50 States and Washington, D.C."?

    I know this isn't the best place for this, but I don't know of a better one.
    You know what would be cool? If you'd have a section with posted Best Of lists from the year (and decade!) for simple Add to Queue action.
    Also, if when looking at my own ratings, I could sort by date, so that it'd be easier for me to make my own Best of Lists.

  59. I'm a huge Netflix fan. With the speediness of your returns to get DVD's back to me, there is an awesome feature called Netflix on XBOX, which is amazing to say the least.

    However, it is Christmas time, and I am finding it very difficult to find ANY Christmas movies on Watch Instantly. I know most of them are old, but nothing? At all? Wouldn't you find it a quite popular choice this time of year?

  68. So, I don't get this with studios getting nervous about Netflix streaming. Why is it I can rent a dvd but not stream it. Can't they find a business model where they are essentially equivalent? It's really annoying to wait for the damn dvd to show up and all you have are crappy low rated recent movies for streaming. Don't get me wrong. I love streaming and it should be the way to watch movies but except for the good old movies, you really have any good choices. Even for the tv shows, you can only watch really old seasons for some popular ones. This is really bad.

    Soooo.... A suggestion for the site:

    It would be nice if I could sort my Queue by something other than List Order. I have nearly 500 movies on my list and am sometimes in the mood for a certain genre; it would be nice to click the header and have the list re-sort... Thanks for your time!

    Once they started using Silverlight, they took it off their website (I guess they got sick of hearing paying customers complaining about how shitty streaming was because of Silverlight). Someone found the link and posted it here. Within 2 weeks, Netflix killed it.

  76. Two suggestions:

    1. Have somewhere on the site to leave suggestions.

    2. It'd be really useful if we can input some sort of note to ourselves for movies we add to our queues. As an example, I have a single disc of a TV show sitting in my queue. I remember it was because of a specific episode, but I couldn't tell you why or which episode.

    Or, a friend suggests a movie to me, so I add it to the queue. Useful if I can make a note that it was that friend that told me about it, so I can get back to him/her after I've seen it.

    Thanks.

  79. I know that this is probably the wrong place to put this, but I honestly can't find any other place to send Netflix suggestions, as they have absolutely no email system and I don't have a land line.

    I really would love to see a Randomize button in the movie queue. I add all sorts of movies, sometimes when I'm in a mood for action/adventure, the mood for sci-fi, the mood for anime, or the mood for a good old-fashioned Rat Pack movie. My picks tend to bunch up into different genres, which can make getting them a bit predictable. I would love to be able to hit a button and have all of my suggestions do a crazy tap dance.

    What about it, Netflix?

  87. HD streaming? I just want a player that supports v-sync, unlike Silverlight. And the argument that they need a browser plug-in to thwart piracy is bullshit. If you get Starz Play through Verizon, you use media player 11, and the movie is downloaded right to your hard drive. It's Netflix/Microsoft that just wants you to use Silverlight. Even though they both know it sucks.

  97. I'm leaving this on here even though it has nothing to do with this topic because I don't know where else to leave it. Netflix needs to seriously do something about their Friends feature. It is so difficult to navigate sometime (i.e. adding friends, looking at your profile). My % similarity with my friends on my page is different from what it says on theirs. Sometimes I will go to community home and it will say that I have no frieds. Also, it never updates my ratings. The last ratings it has for me are from this summer. Talk about annoying!

  98. Hi,

  112. Netflix HD stream on the Sony BDP-N460 is very poor. Video motion is sluggish and jerky, as if on an old PC with weak video card. No stopping or buffering, just jagged motion. SD streaming looks fine, and HD streaming from Amazon looks fine. Roku player on same router looks fine.

    Anyone else having this problem?

  113. I really don't understand how Netflix can claim to be focusing on Internet streaming while *removing* content from their instant play section.

    Yes, I said removing. My son watches a lot of the instant view verisons of the Mighty Machines series, and Thomas the Train, Bob the Builder and some other children's shows. Given the attention span of a 2-year old, this was a great way to have a ready collection of these programs. However, lately we've noticed that a lot (literally 80% of some series) of the shows we used to watch are no longer in the catalog.

    I have *no* idea why they'd be eliminating any content at all -- isn't the #1 complaint that there isn't enough streaming content? And since it's SD content, it doesn't seem like it could possibly take up much space on their servers either.

    Netflix seems to be in the process of eliminating the only reason I get my Roku and kept my Netflix subscription, which was the high-quality children's content.

    Unfortunately, Netflix also really doesn't provide an avenue to complain about such things either (trying finding an email address or phone number for that on their web site!), so we have to leave comments on blogs like this and hope someone from Netflix reads them.

  116. I just want to say that I'd really like to see Netflix become available on Panasonic Blu-ray players. I've been a Netflix subscriber for about three years now. I was just given my first Blu-ray player for Christmas... you guessed it, it's a Panasonic. I was quite disappointed that I wouldn't be able to stream my Netflix selections through it.

    Netflix, Panasonic, help your loyal customers and team up!

  117. Consider this another vote for adding Netflix support to Viera Cast-equipped Panasonic blu-ray players.

    Thanks!!

  118. Also adding my request for Netflix on Panasonic Viera Cast.

  119. The Sony Blu-ray Disc Player is great. I have it connected through a wireless bridge. I can get video but no sound. All other internet content through the player is fine. Sony says it is Netflix - Netflix says it is the router - been holding for Linksys tech support for over an hour - can anyone help?

  121. Here's another vote for adding Netflix streaming to Panasonic's Viera system. Please work out a deal with Panasonic. It's beneficial to you both!

  122. I check for firmware updates for my Panasonic BD player all the time just hoping that Netflix is added as a feature.

    I even went as far as to get the Netflix streaming disc for PS3 just to try it in my Panasonic Blu-Ray player (it didn't work, but it really looked like it wanted to!!)

  123. One more vote for Netflix streaming to Viera Cast. Amazon on demand is kind of lame and just as expensive as the cable company.

    ReplyDelete
  124. It's seriously frustrating you are adding support for more hardware devices but are not doing anything about HD playback on the PC. The quality of SD is horrible.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I am also puzzled as to why Panasonic and Netflix do not have a relationship. Panasonic needs to support their loyal customers with the ability to stream video through Netflix as well as other free internet resources that allow for the streaming of many TV shows at no cost. Can we get a response from Panasonic....PLEASE!

    ReplyDelete
  126. When hooking up my blu Ray player it's ask for a code? What's this code??

  127. Add me to those who want Panasonic and Netflix to engage each other. I did setup a Amazon account and have streamed several movies in the past two weeks in HD, but they are lacking some TV shows (HBO), and I find the price model a bit high given I can pick up a redbox movie for $1. Here is hoping Panasonic and Netflix find a solution !

  129. Guys, there is a ton of demand for viera cast to have netflix support! All that would be required is a simple firmware update and it would make my choice a lot easier to keep my panasonic system. After researching many unit, I decided to go with the SC-BT300 system. After comparing many features it was a high quality system and the best deal for the money. But...an important feature for me was the BD live and online capabilities. After comparing so many models with netflix from samsnung, sony, and others I just assumed the panasonic had netflix since it did have the other online capabilities like amazon, youtube, etc. I was wrong and am quite dissapointed. I thought maybe a firmware update would do the trick and allow my panasonic unit to have netflix, but this didn't solve the issue either. I am now considering returning my panasonic unit for a sony or samsung and I know many other people are in the same boat. The panasonic system is a great deal, but a serious selling point is the netflix service for so many users that it only makes sense for panasonic to integrate this feature. There is 2coming soon sections on the viera cast homepage so I can only hope that netflix will be added VERY soon so I can keep my system and be happy with viera cast supporting netflix. Come on guys do yourselves a favor and add this service. It will encourage more to buy panasonic systems and surely netflix would love to have their service integrated into viera cast.

    A frusturated panasonic customer...Please help!

  130. I'm very irritated with this Panasonic/Netflix issue. I'm not quite sure what's the hold up. I'm a major panasonic fan and all my electronics are panasonic. I loathe Samsung and will not buy them just for netflix support. I already have my $4K panasonic plazma and certainly I'm not gonna switch it for netflix either. Netflix should really allow PC users to stream HD, or allow third party software makers to make something like Hulu Desktop to stream HD on a PC. Either that or resolve the VieraCast / Panasonic issue, who cares to stream netflix on their phone??? wtf? concentrate!

    ReplyDelete
  131. You can always purchase a Roku Player for $99.00 that will allow you to download Netflix and other programs and play them on your systems. Netflix did inform me that the best download quality currently through any system is 720p and that most downloads are only 480p. That may be a deterrent for me to pay an extra 100 bucks for 480.

    ReplyDelete
  132. As others have said - Get Netflix on the Viera Cast! Do a deal with Panasonic!

  133. I just purchased a Sony Blur-Ray DVD Player BDP-S560 w/WiFi at a wonderful price (and is non-refundable) only to learn that not all Sony's - only the BDP-S460 model can be used for Neflix . . . What with that ???? A New and better model of Sony and I cannot use it to watch any Instant Streaming from Netflix . . . SOny and/or Netflix needs to do an update to their firmware or system . . . Or at least does anyone know of a work around for me . . . HELP - I finally buy a Blue-Ray DVD player so I can also watch Netflix via WIFi only to learn that I am still stuck watching instant movies on my laptop -HELP ! ! ! !

  135. Not to brag, but I had bought a LG BD370 for $77.00 at Fry’s Electronics on Black Friday, and it works great. I have it bridged with my AirPort Express and Airport Extreme. I am able to view NetFlix, YouTube, and CinemaNow. I love NextFlix, my only complaint is that I wish they would have more New Releases on Instant Streaming.

  136. Need to buy a Blue-Ray player. I would like to get a Panasonic but I am holding on. Would they allow Netflix streaming in coming months? If not, then I need to go with another brand like Sony. I sent Panasonic an e-mail but never heard back.

    ReplyDelete
  137. In my experience, Panasonic makes the best/most reliable Blu-ray players--going with another brand just isn't worth it. I am currently not a Netflix subscriber; however, if Panasonic included Netflix streaming capabilities through Viera Cast, I would certainly subscribe.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I only have only bought Panasonic TVs and want to buy a Panasonic blu ray player. But if Netflix and Panasonic don't work out a deal, I'm canceling my Netflix account. This is only about the 500th comment to that effect on this forum. Is anyone listening? We're all gonna start talking with our feet soon!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I am yet another Panasonic owner, who would like to use the streaming video from Netflix. With only one HD port on the TV, we'd not be adding the Netflix Ruku (?) player, for sure.

    It appears it's very much in demand...so why has Netflix not responded? Why can't Netflix and Panasonic work and play well together?

    ReplyDelete
  140. And...why doesn't Netflix respond? Why no word from Panasonic? I'm a 10 year Netflix customer and I find it infuriating that they do not really care any longer about their customers, since they've become so big. When I started using Netflix, they had one location in California - and I'm in FLORIDA! I waited a long time for my movies back then, but stuck with them. I'm wondering if it's worthwhile to continue supporting a company that doesn't support it's customers' needs.

  142. Wow! I am a soon to be Panasonic TV owner and also a Netflix subscriber. I really hope someone from Netflix addresses this issue soon or else I will also be canceling my account. I say all us Panasonic + Netflix subscribers revolt and make Netflix FEEL THE PAIN WE FEEL!

  145. Streaming is pretty cool, but man, do the selections suck. Most of the movies are so old they don't even play them on TV anymore! I'm not paying money to watch old, old stuff nor am I paying to watch stuff that can't even get more than three stars! My wife and I spent the last 30 minutes trying to find something to watch that wouldn't put us to sleep and finally gave up. I'm glad this is a free trial I would hate to think I lost some money with this!

  149. About hooking your laptop to your TV, I'm the anonymous who made the suggestion earlier. Your LT most likely has RGB out, and if it is a newer model it may even have HDMI out. Your HDTV should have one or all of the following inputs, HDMI, DVI, and RGB. I've listed them in order of preference. However, all three connections can cary an HDTV signal. In any case you run a cable from your LT to one of your TV's inputs. You will need to find the right adapters/cables (most at radioshack) expecially if you're converting fromone connector to another (for example RGB to HDMI etc.)

    After connecting them, use your laptop to detect the new monitor (your TV) usually you do that in video settings or if you hook them up and then power on your LT it may just detect it automatically. You can switch monitors by pressing FN + F8 (works on most LTs) and then adjust the resolution in windows to preferable 1920 x 1080 if you can, otherwise try 1920 x 1200 or you may have to consult your TV manual to see which resolutions are supported on each type of connection. Email me directly if you need help.

    Now if only I can only get a responce from either Netflix/Sony when they plan to do a firmware up date to the DBP-S560 Blue-Ray DVD player so I can just stream movies to my HDTV . . . Or am I dreaming - or having another nightmare thinking either one will respond . . .

    I thought the 560 had netflix but I guess only the 460 does.
