Sony BRAVIA Gets Slacker

Sony today added support for Slacker radio to its BRAVIA Internet Video Link for its HDTVs. The addition lets users tie an existing Slacker account to the link and stream their customized radio channels; Sony doesn't say whether users have access to the full favorite, ban or skip controls from the web or the Slacker G2 but implies users will have to configure stations away from the TV.

Access to Howcast is also launching today and gives access to just short of 100 how-to videos through the TV separated into different categories.

Both Howcast and a basic Slacker account are free to use on the Internet Video Link, which itself costs $300 and needs a broadband Internet connection. Full Slacker premium accounts range between $30 and $90 depending on the length of the contract.
