Netflix streaming hits VIZIO Connected HDTV [UPDATED]

Vizio Connected HDTV Netflix is launching a new platform that they’re calling “Conneced HDTV,” and with it comes confirmation of the second direct-to-TV partnership.

Hulu?) that you’ll be able to pull up as well. This is a trend we are definitely liking, let’s eliminate set-top boxes while providing more viewing options for the consumer.

EDIT: Okay, we just got more details on this. Aside from Netflix, the VIZIO Connected HDTV platform also brings Amazon Video on Demand, Pandora, Flickr, Blockbuster OnDemand, Rhapsody, Adobe Flash content, games from Accedo Broadband, and the Yahoo! widget engine. Very, very interesting!
