Sony has added Netflix to its Sony Entertainment Network (its digital portal that features entertainment content, which is accessible through selected connected Sony BRAVIA televisions, Blu-ray players and PS3 devices).

"Adding Netflix to the Sony Entertainment Network gives consumers an even broader choice of devices to instantly watch unlimited TV programmes and films streamed over the internet," said Greg Peters, vice president of product development at Netflix. "We're always looking to provide people with new ways to enjoy Netflix."

Netflix will sit alongside other services on the Sony Entertainment Network including YouTube and BBC News, as well as unique services such as Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited. Read more here.
