    Why so few apps on 2013 device?

    Hi.

    I've just bought a BDP5600. It seemed like a good choice for playing BluRay AND getting Smart TV function.

    But there are not many good apps other than Netflix. Using this site http://appsontv.nettvservices.com/ I can see that there are more apps on last years model (Viaplay, TuneIn) and so on, but theese apps are not availble on my new model (using the webkit platform?)

    Why is it, that when you buy a brand new device, you get fewer apps? Do I just need to wait for the developers to convert their apps for a newer platform?

    Looking for replys as I can return the device before 14 days.

    Thank you!

    Kind regards,

    Morten

    I agree totally. The number of apps on this device leaves a lot to be desired.

    Last night I counted close to 200 apps on my Sony TV. Go figure.

    Hi,

    reason is, that the 5600 is using a different web browser - apps need to be adapted to this by the owners of these apps.
