Sport on smart TVs: what's on offer in Australia

Nothing beats watching sports on a big screen. Thanks to the new range of "smart TVs" hitting the market this year, there are now a lot more ways you can get your sporting fix delivered directly to your TV via your internet connection.

Hi there - is there one tv particularly 'linked' to surfing? I couldn't see it above? Great article by the way - we are taking our first shakey steps towards a smart tv and this has helped enormously!

Any of these apps available through Boxee? I currently have my plasma connected to my laptop and use the Boxee application to stream media from the internet/home network. Anyone had any luck getting these sports apps on Boxee?

None of the current range offers this app. That's not to say it won't appear in the future, but at the moment, only the services in the story are actually available.
