Opera browser hitting Sony Bravia HDTVs and Blu-ray players

Opera Software has announced today that they will be bringing their popular Opera browser to Sony Bravia HDTVs and Blu-ray disc players.
The company says the browser will bring applications, widgets, a full and robust Web browsing experience, and HTML5, HbbTV and OIPF.

Flash is so far not supported.

Opera says they want to give TV users a chance to enjoy VOD, exchange "opinions with friends through social networks about the program they are watching," and quickly be able to purchase items they just saw in ads, or TV shows.

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

Is it going to crap out every time you try to use it? I have tried opera browser in both linux and windows on two different machines and it would crap out every time I would use it.
