"The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices." ---Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software

Opera announced that they’ll be coming up with Sony TVs and Blu-ray players. The new Opera solution will be sporting HTML 5, OIPF and HbbTV support. However, Flash isn’t announced yet, but we’re wishing it will be included upon release.

“The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices,” said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. “Our ability to address key hybrid broadcast-broadband initiatives in numerous markets makes us a natural fit with Sony. By delivering both a global viewpoint and the necessary technology, we are able to stay on the cutting edge of the industry.”

Meanwhile, they didn’t include any other information about the devices which’ll be supporting Opera, but somehow we have a good guess that these devices are those presented during CES 2011.

C out the video from Opera after the skip.

Another company is on the works to launch an Internet TV system challenge and set to become the latest rival of Google and Apple TVs.

Though not yet an actual product, Snaptick gave CNET a good glimpse of its Internet TV system which will be a challenge for Google TV and Apple TV. The company promises the “full web” on your TV which is controlled by aphone a phone and/or laptop. On their iPhone app, you can actually browse content from your iPhone for your television. In addition, the technology is also capable of a multiple people control on the same TV with the use of several iPhone units.

The only problem as of the moment is that the company hasn’t finalized the materials for its external properties. The company is still deciding between a good old set-top box or a built-in Blu-ray player or TV. Also, there is no price and release date yet. However, the company is now accepting apps for a private beta. Can’t picture it out? See the video after the break.
