The Sony Dash is one of the latest network-connected displays to add support for Netflix streaming movies and television.

Sony has a new Wi-Fi enabled touchscreen device that it calls the Dash Personal Internet Viewer. Last week, Sony announced that it was adding a dedicated application to the Dash for the Netflix streaming video service. If you have a Netflix subscription, an icon on the screen will provide access directly to your “Watch Instantly” queue selections.

Consumers are steadily adopting network-connected displays and other devices (such as Blu-ray players), which is resulting in rising demand for video content delivered over broadband connections. All the signs seem to indicate that this trend will accelerate.
