WD TV Live brings the best of internet entertainment to your HD TV

For a software engineer (Alfie) and a blogger (me), our home entertainment setup is pretty low-tech.  We subscribe to Dish Network and occasionally stream episodes of tv episodes that we've missed onto an iPad/ or laptop, but nary do internet and home entertainment meet.  I've always felt like we don't take full advantage of the internet to watch movies and tv, but we've taken the first step to correct that with WD Live TV device, a streaming set top box  from Western Digital that's ready to go, straight out of the box.

Last year I attended a Western Digital event where they set up a lucky group of bloggers with the WD Live TV, a WD My Net N900 wireless router (which is specially designed for the home with multiple streaming devices) and a MyBook Live home cloud storage device so we could update our home network.  WD TV Live is the first thing we installed, and it has earned a permanent place on our tv entertainment system!

Here are some things I like about WD TV Live:

You can connect a USB stick, USB device (i.e. digital camera, videocam, etc..) so you can listen to music, watch movies or view slideshows of your photos on your HD TV.  Great for parties!

The device connects to your home wifi network so you can access music, movies or photos from the devices on your home network.

It's super easy to set up and use.

There's an app that allows you to use your smartphone as a remote control device.

What I don't like:

Unless you have a Netflix or Hulu subscription, the choices for streaming and watching movies from the internet are limited -- notably, you can't watch movies from Amazon Instant Video or iTunes.  Because of that limitation, so far we use it mostly to play music from our Pandora and Spotify playlists  However, that alone is actually a good enough reason to keep the WD TV Live around -- after all, music sounds much, much better on our stereo system than on a laptop or tablet's tinny speakers!
