Widgets, Flickr, Twitter, Rallycast, Blockbuster On Demand, Ebay and You Tube services.  It also offers the exclusive Crystal Full HD engine, Wide Color Enhancer, two built in speakers with SRS TruSurround, one PC video input, four HDMI inputs, two component video inputs, one composite video input, one optical digital audio input, one ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports, and Anynet Plus capability.
