Topic: Sony discontinuing support for the dash on July 1, 2017
Sony has apparently publicly announced dropping support for the Sony dash as of July 1, 2017.
See the banner here: http://community.sony.com/t5/Dash/bd-p/other-Dash
Here's the official announcement text, provided to me by Sony:
As of July 2017, Sony Electronics will no longer support dash devices and functionality will terminate. As of April 3, 2017, no further over-the-network updates for enhancement or maintenance can be performed on dash devices. Some functionality on dash devices may continue - without further updates - between now and July 2017.
As a long-term dash customer myself, I am, of course, disappointed in the situation.
