The Twitter- and Netflix-equipped Vizio HDTVs are now shipping

Vizio announced the 1080p LED XVT line way back in June of ’09 and they are just now starting to ship. These are the sets that come with that oh-so-awesome QWERTY remote to work the TV’s collection of Internet apps. It’s too bad that most owners will still need a cable or satellite box because this TV line is nearly an all-in-one solution for home entertainment.

Get this, the XVT and upcoming XVT Pro line have all these services built-in:

  • Vudu
  • Netflix
  • Yahoo TV Wdigets
  • Flickr
  • Twitter
  • Blockbuster OnDemand
  • Amazon Video On Demand
  • Rhapsody
  • Pandora
  • Showtime videos
  • Revision3 videos
  • CBS
  • NBC
  • CNBC
  • The Weather Channel
  • Roxio CinemaNow

Now some of these services like Netflix and Blockbuster OnDemand require a subsciption, but the access is built-into the set. The technical specs are just as impressive with a 240Hz, localized-dimming LED backlit screen, 5 HDMI ports, and 802.11 b/g/n for all that Internet fun. The 42-inch set starts the line off at $949 with the 47-inch and 55-inch fetching $1,549 and $1,999, respectively. [Amazon via Big Picture Big Sound]
