Latest WD TV Media Player Adds Netflix

The new WD TV Live Plus Media Player from Western Digital can stream content from Netflix.

Western Digital has come out with another version of its media player that adds network connectivity features to any HDTV. The new WD TV Live Plus HD Media Player now adds Netflix to its list of supported Internet sources for audio and video content. It also streams content from YouTube, Flickr, Pandora, Live365, and the MediaFly network. It also can access your own locally-stored content, either through a USB storage device or across a home network. It is capable of 1080p HD playback, and supports both wired and WiFi connections to your home network (though WiFi support requires a separate, optional adapter at additional cost).

The box is available now with an MSRP of $149.99, though I have found sites offering it for under $120.
