Vizio Releasing Twitter-, Flickr-, Netflix-enabled TV

Widgets and gadgets are the latest trend to hit HDTVs. Vizio is upping the game by equipping its soon-to-be-released HDTVs with an impressive suite of Internet applications and support for video streaming sites. So much so, that this portfolio will place them on top of many wish lists as these TVs will be better equipped than a TiVo or even Windows Media Server.
Forget about Vizio being a mid-tier, Wal-mart brand. These features might make some people question why they pay a monthly fee for a TiVo. Owners will be able to stream content from Revision3, Showtime and Pandora for free, while also able to subscribe to Vudu, Netflix, Blockbuster OnDemand, Amazon Video On Demand and Rhapsody. Plus, the sets are able to work with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and the Yahoo Widgets Engine.
