Sony has just launched a significant update to its 2011 line of Bravia TVs that adds a few new social networking features as well as video content.  To start with, you'll be getting YouTube HD so you can catch up on your favorite web series and cat videos.  If you want to share those videos, you can do so via the new Facebook app.

Sony is a company that's really trying to turn things around, and at the head of that movement is CEO Phil Molyneux.  He's been in position for 14 months and he's already starting to see things improve.  Black Friday sales were particularly strong. Numbers aren't in for every store yet, but Sony Store sales were up a significant 20 percent.  Calls to their online service also increased significantly, which is a good sign.  Molyneux gives a lot of credit for the sales increase to Blu-ray players which he calls "a phenomenal success."

It's been an uphill battle for 3D televisions, but things are really starting to pick up for the new format.  In fact, in the third quarter of 2011, shipments of 3D televisions were up 27%. Active set shipments increased by 23% while passive sets like those offered by LG and Vizio went up an impressive 34%. The National Polling Data group estimates that 3D TVs will be in 10% of American homes by the end of the year, bringing the total to 21.5 million units.

Sony and Harris Interactive conducted a poll earlier this month to find out just how attached people are to their TVs.  The results are a bit surprising as it turns out over half of TV owners are unhappy with their current sets. Of those dissatisfied owners, 32% say that the size of their TV is the biggest problem.  We'll just go ahead and assume that means that those folks would like bigger TVs - it's hard to imagine many complaints the other way around.

When products are out longer, costs get lower and processes become more efficient, it's not uncommon to see prices drop.  That's not what's happening with LCD tech though - prices have been dropping consistently, with a huge spike over the last two months.

The Netflix streaming service is known for having plenty of movies and TV shows for you to watch at a nice low price.  It's also known for not having anything even close to new - something that the folks at Netflix are trying hard to change. This weekend they announced a new deal that's almost certainly a coup for the company.  'Arrested Development,' the prematurely cancelled Fox comedy series, is being brought back on the air.  Fox isn't going to be airing it though, nor is any TV channel.  The new episodes will be available exclusively on Netflix.
