made thread a sticky
Got a new bravia tv on Saturday, I had 4OD and ITV player till yesterday, they have now disappeared any ideas?
following reply from Sony by e-mail :-
"After reading your e-mail and looking further into this for you I can confirm that Sony may be testing these new services hence the reason it appeared on screen.
I can also confirm that those services are not active at present, however that does not mean it will not be available in the future"
*****From the 3 days i could use them there did appear to be a few problems, lip-sync was out on itv player, 4od menu didn't work correctly, hopefully they will be available soon.*****

I appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm for these services, but you have to remember that while part of the process is down to Sony, the service provider also has a say.
There is an awful lot of work to do between wanting to provide a service through Bravia and seeing it go live.
As always, any and all feedback is very welcome, however I am not 100% convinced that any sort of "petition" will make these services appear any quicker; we want them to happen as much you do!
Indeed - as Lee says, its not just as simple as copy & paste existing web based services into BIV unfortunately. Sometimes they can go from NDA -> Term Sheet extremely quickly, othertimes they can take ages.
That said if people have specific requests for services they would like to see, feel free to post them. No guarantees, but can certainly consider them.
I dont know if this is offered at the moment but a few - free to view - movies on weekly rotor from Sony Pictures catalogue would be welcome.
Some sort of whats new show or infomation panel detailing new/refreshed content spread accross all the channels rather than having to go and search each channel independently. Although that isnt such an issue now if more and more content gets added then it would help to have some sort of news front page.
Plus the VidZone channel from the PS3.
Thanks for the information. At least it's good to know that testing is under way and that we have this to look forward to.
I have to compliment Sony while I'm here - we have a KDL40EX713 and love it to bits. iPlayer is fantastic on it's own and I now have wireless streaming media from the media server on my NAS which is fantastic now I've sussed it out properly.
Yes SET are launching on Sky this year sometime.
So the content they offer on BRAVIA will get a big boost then as rights become a lot easier.
Totally agree with you about the Info panel for content - my colleagues in Sony Austalia do this very well and we are looking at trying to replicate this.
Itv player and 4OD has to come soon, ive had my bravia internet TV now for 6 months and cant wait for the arrival on these two services
I have started a facebook group:
"ITV Player and 4OD on Sony Bravia Internet TV"
It would be great if everyone joined and maybe Sony might realise that they need to roll out theses services more quicly or at least give everyone a specific release date
Some dates are being suggested by "drumtochty" on the Digital Spy forum...
COME ON SONY!
Add the ITV Player and Ebay to your Internet Video channels quick as I bought a Bravia on the basis that I would get these channels after seeing them on your website
Recently bought a BDS570 Blu-ray player and thought I should compliment the guys & girls at Sony for doing such a great job linking up with BBC I-Player.
However, just like everyone else in the UK who's got a Sony product with Bravia Intenret I'm wondering we're going to be able to enjoy ITV Player and Channel4 on Demand.
Any firm dates for these services yet ?
The technology involved in streaming ITV player and C4OD is not exactly rocket science. I would hope that those clever people at Sony could work out a speedy solution to implementing these 2 channels.
Why the delay for ITV Player on the Bravia's when it's already on the PS3?????????
Don't tell me it's penny pinching by ITV like when they reduced the text service to adverts, not that it was so wonderful in the first place.
Even an estimated launch date would be nice from Sony.
Join the facebook group
lets put pressure on sony because they are providing no indication when these two services will be avaliable
