WD TV Live features WD’s newest user interface that delivers the latest hit movies, TV shows, music and online services from companies like Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Blockbuster directly to your TV. The new streaming media player connects to the Internet wirelessly or through an Ethernet connection, with 802.11n wireless connectivity and 1080p video resolution.

In addition to Internet content, WD TV Live allows users to enjoy personal media such as photos, video and music on their home entertainment systems by supporting a wide range of file formats for streaming content from any connected USB drive, digital camcorder, or camera, network drive such as the My Book Live personal cloud storage, and any networked PC or Mac computer in the home.

Adding to the WD TV family’s current content offerings from Netflix, Hulu Plus, Blockbuster, CinemaNow, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and many others, WD TV Live and WD TV Live Hub are reportedly the first streaming media players to deliver Spotify’s music service. Premium Spotify subscribers can now enjoy unlimited on-demand access to Spotify’s catalog of over 15 million songs on their home entertainment system.

WD incorporates Spotify’s popular features in the new service, including the ability to create and manage Spotify playlists, share songs to Spotify friends, and see and subscribe to friends’ playlists via their Spotify profiles. Users can also share tracks by sending songs directly to other Spotify users’ inboxes.

In addition to Spotify and WD’s current content offerings, WD TV Live and WD TV Live Hub will also now include the Dailymotion video service. The application offers quality video content from users, independent content creators and premium partners, including high-quality and HD video.
