Sony VAIO adds BBC iPlayer widget

Sony VAIO televisions will now come equipped with a pre installed BBC iPlayer widget on their desktop, according to Sony UK.

The widget will enable users to access the BBC's live and on-demand TV and radio programmes directly through a desktop shortcut. Sony VAIO users will also be able to pre-book a series of upcoming shows to be downloaded when available.

Edd Uzzell, Proposition Development Manager for Sony said "We are delighted to be able to offer Sony VAIO customers this added entertainment functionality giving users the ability to watch and manage their favourite programmes at the click of a button. We are really excited to be partnering with the BBC to bring their fantastic iPlayer service to Sony's VAIO range".

The iPlayer desktop service will be available as a pre-install from September.
