I'm looking for a 46-55 inch TV that can play flash videos? Someone told me the Sony Internet Tvs and the Samsungs Internet Tvs can do this? Can anyone please confirm this. Also are there any other brands capable of doing this? Thanks

The Sony Google TV's have full Flash/java with a Chrome browser, the Samsung TV's have their own propitiatory browser which if you read some of the owners threads is decent but falls well short of being a full browser.

the LG LV5500 series has a web browser and a little Wii style remote for browsing the web.

It cannot accept plugins though, and the current flash version on it is 8, so anything designed to run on newer versions will not work.

What about the non google Sony Internet Tvs , I really dont need full web browser, just that it can play flash videos like on crackle.com or putlocker.com .

Just realize that Flash player is on life support. Adobe just killed mobile flash because it didn't work as advertised, and killed battery life on all manner of devices. Apparently, only Apple among the big players were willing to draw a line in the sand, refusing to allow Flash on any of their i-devices.

The desktop (and set-top box) market can't be far behind,

Sony TV's/Blu-ray players and Roku boxes have the Crackle App on their devices. What would you use putlocker for? TV's wont download files from filesharing sites.

How about the Flash support status in 2012 TVs? Any TVs which have full support?

Your best bet is to purchase a google tv box from sony or vizio separately, no tv, even the $20,000 4k sony tv, has a good browser. They are all ****. The best tv browser is probably from an LG or Samsung, who have implemented faster processors in their TVs (which makes the browser and loading flash smoother).

FWIW, get a $100 vizio google tv or the $200 sony google tv, or better yet...get a small PC or build a pc for under $300 and use that as your browser!
