Some people have logged disappointment/suprise over the topics of choice for the VIA surverys. Personally, the surveys are what I expected because of these 2 points.
1. The TV is the same as the 551 EXCEPT FOR the VIA apps. So there is really no need to test the features that already exist in the 551.
2. IMO, The apps choosen for the survery are choosen because they are streaming based not because they are subscription based. VIZIO needs to know how the streaming music and movie apps function as far as APP functionality, speed, buffering, content, etc.
There is really no point to having a survery on the Yahoo Finance or the TV Guide App.
Streaming media directly to the TV is still fairly fresh technology and I'm happy to be part of a testing program that paves the way forward. I don't see the VIA VIP program as a ploy to sign up customers for VIZIOs streaming partners.
