Vizio's flagship XVT series HDTVs are now shipping, the company announced on Friday. All of these flagship models have Vizio Internet Apps preloaded and can connect wirelessly thanks to integrated dual-band Wi-Fi.

All the sets use local dimming areas in their LED panels, with the 55- and 42-inch sets sporting 120 zones and the 47-inch TV featuring 160 zones. The larger sets are now also less than three inches thick, while the smaller ones are under two inches in girth.

Vizio Internet apps include access to Vudu, Pandora, Yahoo! Video, NBA Game Time, Twitter, Facebook, Netflix, Rhapsody and Amazon VOD among others
