For those that don’t have the benefit of Xbox Live or Playstation Network, the good folks at Western Digital have unveiled their latest and greatest creation: The WDTV Live Hub.
Dread Central was invited out to their “Night of the Connected Living Room” launch party where the company was using it to play all kinds of streaming horror content. We were able to access everything from NetFlix Instant, YouTube, Facebook, Pandora and Flickr all in HD on our TV sets. Who needs an iPad?
Priced at US $199.99, it’s a sweet piece of work! Check out the pics below!
