This was my encounter recently when trying to rent the Blu-ray Cowboys and Aliens. That got me considering, what about purchasing 1 of the new Media Streamers and attaching it to my Plasma tv?
Getting a fairly quick internet speed of 11MBytes/sec would permit me to open up a whole new world of digital media, from streaming music files and internet radio to HD films from the likes of Netflix and Blinkbox. But which device would suit my method, simply because my web router is situated in my study upstairs.
I could buy a device like the more expensive D-Hyperlink Boxee which consists of a wireless connection or invest less cash and go for the new Sony SMP-N200 which is much more of a simple streamer at half the cost.
Because becoming released a few years ago the D-Hyperlink Boxee which was able to play a wide range of video and music files has undergone a software program upgrade. It's price is £200 and can play high high quality audio formats (FLAC and WAV) as well as HD video (inc MKV files).Outputs consist of two USB sockets to allow it to connect to external devices and that could consist of an external Difficult drive. This would successfully create an affordable server. Also the Boxee will communicate with any NAS (Networked Storage Device) on your system which will allow you to browse your library of video,music and media data.
Interestingly, Boxee now has a dedicated BBC iPlayer app onboard which indicates it is simpler to navigate around and as long as you have at least 2MB/sec internet speed, browsing high quality ought to not be a problem.
However what struck my interest the most was the reality that the movie-streaming provider Blinkbox had now signed up to include a dedicated Film app too. YouTube was also catered for and a big plus for music fans the addition of Spotify.
