Sony Brava KDL-40CX523 Smart TV Apps Bland
Is there a way to refresh or get more apps on this TV as the ones on it are rubbish and all require a subscription? It has You Tube and BBC I player, but all the others are total rubbish and un-usable without subscription, and are nothing one has heard of. For EG: What about ITV Player?
Yes I have refreshed Internet content.
Will Sony be revamping the Apps?

No, you can't add apps - only Sony can do that.

As with all 'smart' TV's, they aren't very smart.

I'd love to know what the situation is with ITV Player though, as almost nothing supports it.

As this model is at least two years old it is highly unlikely that there will be any updates to the Internet Video features.
Not all of the streamed channels require a subscription although some do.

What exactly do you think you should get without subscription? Recent films and sport will not be free on any 'Smart-TV'

If you want more 'apps' consider a 10 NOW TV box - but be warned subscription is required for 'premium' content.

And on Youview too but I think that Nigel Goodwin was really referring to Smart-TVs (in the context of the original question) where support is very limited

'SMART' TV's, set-top boxes (satellite or Freeview), BD players, almost nothing supports it.

YouView 'was' supposed to be the end of all this, a common interface for all products, so all units would provide the same IPTV capabilities.

But in the end it was a total cock-up, so many years late that pretty well everyone abandoned it, leaving it to become just another non-compatible subscription system.
