Editor's Choice: New Sony HDTV connects with Yahoo widgets


Sony recently announced a new line of HDTVs with Yahoo Widgets. The Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year was a coming out party for internet-friendly, or "connected TVs." Most Connected TVs support streaming video from services like Netflix and news feeds through widgets.

Sony's new Bravia W-Series HDTVs do both. Bravia uses the Yahoo Widget Engine to track news, finance, sports and weather as well as photos posted on Flickr. The Bravia Internet Video service allows you to stream video from YouTube and others. Watch the Yahoo TV Widgets demo here.
