    Western Digital introduces new WD TV streaming box? without Netflix ? Tech News and Analysis (click for full article)

    by Janko Roettgers - May 27, 2014

    Western Digital introduced a refreshed version of its TV streaming player Tuesday: The WD TV Personal Edition, as the device is being called, combines personal media playback with Miracast mirroring, but there’s an important downside: the device doesn’t have a Netflix app, and it doesn’t sound like this will change anytime soon.


    The new WD TV’s suggested retail price is $100. It looks and sounds a lot like its predecessor, the WD TV Live, and comes with 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi as well as an Ethernet port for connectivity, HDMI, Composite A/V and optical audio out ports and a USB 2.0 port for external storage.

    Sounds like it may retain the niche WD has always had when it comes to playing back local/LAN media. Miracast is a nice addition if it works.
