Society: Netflix button to be added to remotes
With the recent talk of the lack of popularity of 3D television, television manufacturers have begun to look elsewhere for new innovations in TV. The most popular option to emerge seems to rest in bringing the world of apps to the TV experience.
Bringing apps to the TV experience seems to be slowly coming to fruition. Just yesterday, Netflix announced that most of the world’s largest remote manufactures have agreed to add a Netflix button to their latest models of remotes. The Netflix button will allow viewers to have one click access to the movie database. The manufactures that have agreed to produce remotes with a Netflix button by this spring include: Panasonic, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Toshiba, Best Buy’s brand Dynex, Haier, as well as Memorex.
