Today Western Digital announced their most versatile media player to date, featuring the usual full feature set as included in their WD TV Live player, with the addition of a range of streaming services and an attractive lower retail price.
Featuring full 1080p video playback of your own local media or video and audio content from a range of on-demand streaming services, the Roku style box is currently available from the US, and will hopefully be launched in the UK in due course.
The new player features a new custom-remote and a dedicated iPhone and Android remote app will be available soon.
With this specification and price, the WD TV Play looks set to be a real contender in the HD Media Player market. We’ll be sure to let you know when it is available to UK buyers as well as a full features and specification roundup.
