Geek deals 20 off WD TV Live streaming media player

first_imgCable TV is dead (to me at least). I haven’t had a traditional TV service since 2009, instead relying on web services like Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu. I haven’t missed the ginormous cable bill and for the most part haven’t missed much in the way of content.Netflix has a reasonable selection of films, though not necessarily the newest, and Hulu has most of the TV shows covered. For those, like me, who have an addiction to a handful of popular shows, Netflix becomes a savior from boredom with the entire running of many a show.Initially, all of these services were only available on your PC. Being able to enjoy your favorite content on a PC was nice, though not ideal. For the majority of us who want to partake of these services on an existing home theater setup, devices like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 were among the first to offer such access.Not long after, we finally saw lower-cost devices like the popular Roku that are dedicated to web streaming with custom software to access these popular services. As the popularity of web media streaming skyrocketed, more and more dedicated devices have sprung up.Western Digital’s entrant into the media streaming market is a strong one. WiFi is of course built in and they include support for all the major services: Netflix, Hulu, Facebook, YouTube, Pandora, Spotify, MLB.TV, and more.The WD TV Live doesn’t stop at web services though, it has USB and network file sharing support, too. You can stream your favorite media from a network device or play it directly from a USB drive.For a limited time you can get the WD TV Live with a special 20% off coupon, bringing the price down to just $79.99 with free shipping.Visit LogicBuy for the WD TV Live media playerlast_img read more
