In addition to the release of Western Digital’s My Book Live and its supporting mobile apps, the external solutions company have also launched the WD TV Live – a Wi-Fi-enabled media player.
The new-to-market streaming media player connects to the internet wirelessly or through an Ethernet connection and features a clean, intuitive user interface, allowing for easy access to internet content from video services, social networking (YouTube, for example) and internet radio delivered directly to your TV in full HD 1080p view.
As Macworld Australia discovered during the press demonstration, the player’s interface is completely customisable. Users can tweak and manipulate the font, images and style that appears on their TV screen, keeping the look personalised and fresh. This, coupled with easy operation, makes it a device that the whole family can get to grips with.
WD TV Live comes with a Fun Spot Games service, that offers casual gaming options, like Sudoku, Black Jack and Poker.
Also included is the Dailymotion video service. This new service offers video content from users, independent content creators and associated partners.
The media player displays personal media like photos, video and music on home entertainment systems, external drives, digital camcorders and any networked PC or Mac.
The WD TV Live is currently available in Australia for $179.
