Panasonic adds iPlayer, Twitter to tellies

Software upgrade available... if you know where to look

High performance access to file storage

Panasonic has quietly rolled out a software update for its 2009 series of internet-connectable HD TVs. The patch usefully adds BBC iPlayer and - perhaps less so - a Twitter client.

Reg Hardware reader Andy Whittaker alerted us to the presence of the update, which we learn was covered by regular Reg Hardware scribe Nigel Whitfield last week.

Twitter on Panasonic

Nigel's piece is worth a look because it seems Panasonic hasn't made the update as easy to access as it might have done. To summarise, you need to do it through your TV's VieraCast UI, but, as we say, Nigel has the details.

Aprés update, your telly will be running software version 2.303 - and you'll be able to Tweet using the numeric pad on your remote. Or you can just keep your phone/iPad/tablet/netbook handy instead... ®
