Western Digital hopes to serve a worthy alternative to the Roku and Apple TV boxes with the new WD TV Play. WD TV Play comes with streaming apps and network streaming. It costs $70 dollars.<br /><br /><h3>WD TV Play</h3>This is certainly not the first media box from Western Digital but the latest WD TV Play is created to combine the best from the internet streaming world with the best from the network streaming world.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/wdtvplay-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/wdtvplay-1.jpg" alt="WD TV Play" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>WD TV Play</i></p><br />This basically means that you can access popular streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu, Spotify, Pandora and more.

WD TV Play supports 1080p streaming.<br /><br />The box comes bundled with a simple remote but you can also opt to control it via the app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
