Well it's about time.  Now that every other company, game console and even some cell phones have Netflix capabilities baked right in, Panasonic has decided it's time to add Netflix to the Viera Cast lineup.

"Panasonic is constantly looking to provide the best possible entertainment experience for our customers," says VP Merwan Mereby.  " The features now available on VIERA CAST provide consumers with access to a wide range of the leading entertainment and interactive sites."

The downside is that only Viera Cast enabled Blu-ray players and TVs made in 2010 or later will have access to the service – your old gear won't update.  You'll need a Netflix subscription to use it, of course, as well as an internet connection.

Panasonic's VT20, VT25, G20, and G25 series televisions are now able to jump on Netflix, as well as the BDT100, BDT300, BDT350, BD65, BD75 and BD70V Blu-ray players.  The B500 portable Blu-ray player gets the update as well.
