Sony Electronics is hoping to get in the Internet TV game with the introduction of its BRAVIA Internet Video Link, a new feature it says will allow most Sony TVs to access free Internet-based video.

The BRAVIA feature relies on a small module that users add to their TVs to connect to the Internet. Then, using Sony's Xross Media Bar user interface -- originally developed for the Sony PSP -- users can browse and access content form AOL, Yahoo!, Grouper and directly from such content providers as Sony Pictures Entertainment and Sony BMG.

All content is streaming video, not downloadable, including Internet-shared videos, music videos, movie trailers, user-generated videos and RSS feeds. It does not require a connection to a home PC.
