Unlikely.

Most of those channels are offerings from the 3rd parties and not from Panasonic. If you follow such discussions you find folk dis on this on almost every brand.

I can explain why folk expect more. They are used to updates and upgrades by the boatloads on personal computers. However the TV makers are not making these channels and are getting a quick education about the new consumer.

Gone are the days where you were told to "sit down and watch what we want you to."

Maybe for new models

I don't think they will add more internet channels for existing models, but I do think they will for their new upcoming TV models. Internet "smart" TVs are becoming a new selling point for the manufacturers so I would think that Panasonic will keep adding more internet features each year when they release their new models.

Out of Luck

Unless Panasonic comes out to say different, if you bought a model with Viera Cast, they won't be doing much if "any" updates because of the concentration on the new Viera Connect. Everyone who has a T.V. or Bluray with the "old" system could be out of luck.
