    There is no Netflix App visible on Google Play through the GTV box and it does not appear as a service through the Sony Entertainment Network. Does anyone know when the Netflix App is coming to GTV please?

    I tried to access Netflix through the Google Chrome browser and although you can see all the services, it displays a 'system requirements' page, i.e. Netflix won't play through Google Chrome on GTV, when you choose something and press PLAY.

    As an aside, I had also expected to see the BBC iplayer App on GTV but no! Fortunately that plays okay through the Google Chrome browser as does 4OD and ITV Player.

    Of course the US version has a Netflix app, in my opinion a very good one. If the UK version does not have Netflix and it isn't accessible by a Google TV browser, there is no way to add it until Netflix and Google provide it. Do other UK streaming boxes have Netflix now?

    Yes many Smart Boxes, TV, BluRay players in the UK have NetFlix as well as games consoles and even Android devices but for some frustrating reason this Sony Google TV Box does not.

    Thanks for the info Aslan442. Did they indicate how it would be made available? e.g. App on Google Play, Netflix option on the Sony Entertainment Newtork app or something else?

    Good news! Received system update on Friday night and the Netflix app now appears in the Apps list. Used it several times over the weekend and it works a treat.
