The WD TV Play is available now
announced a new media player today called "WD TV Play," which allows users to stream content from network-connected devices to an HDTV.
WD TV Play is a Wi-Fi enabled media player that lets users stream movies, TV shows, Internet videos and music through apps like Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Pandora, Spotify, SlingPlayer and VUDU. It has Full-HD 1080p support as well as social apps like Facebook.
In addition to these streaming options, users can also experience media they already own like pictures, music and videos. But this pre-owned content must be on a
computer or network storage
that has a Digital Living Network Alliance server. Connected digital cameras, camcorders or USB drives can air content on the HDTV, too.
“We are excited to bring popular Internet channels and the ability to play personal media from other connected devices in the home, to budget-minded customers,” said Scott Vouri, general manager for WD's connected life solutions group. “Those features and our new, easy-to-use interface make WD TV Play a product that brings smart-TV benefits to a wide range of people.”
There's a WD TV Remote as well, which is connected over the home wireless network and has pre-programmed buttons for easy app navigation. Users also have the option to use their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android device as a remote with the WD TV Remote app.
The new WD TV Play is
now available for $69.99

i have yet to use a player that can handle all formats. and screw transcoding! so i am still using a small laptop with wireless kb/mouse attached via HDMI to tv. view any websites, open any videos especially MKV, play most games, and do whatever. no limitations like these Roku, android on a stick....

You also paid a lot more for that laptop. The things these other devices can do for much cheaper is actually pretty impressive.
