These days there is an alternative using fast Media Streaming devices via online direct to your Plasma television. In this short article you can discover just what device might suit your needs!
This was my experience just recently when attempting to rent the Blu-ray Cowboys & Aliens. Which got me thinking, what about purchasing one of several new Media Streamers and connecting it to my Plasma television?
Having a relatively fast internet speed of 11MBytes/sec would allow me to start a whole new arena of electronic media, from streaming music files and internet radio to HD films from the likes of Blinkbox and Netflix. But which product will fit my system, since my internet router is situated in my study upstairs.
I may possibly purchase a keyboard including the costlier D Link Boxee which includes a wireless connection or possibly spend less and pick the new Sony SMP N200 that is more of a simple streamer at half the expense.
Since being introduced a several years ago the D-Link Boxee which has been fortunate to enjoy a wide variety of video and music files has undergone a software update.

Also the Boxee will communicate with any NAS (Networked Storage Device) on your system that will let you to browse the library of yours of video,music and media information.

It would seem that D-Link are on to a winner here!!

Wifi is included by this device plus its software menus are not hard to navigate around and like those found on its Blu ray players and TVs. A big plus for those of us with slightly older TVs would be the fact that the SMP N200 also sports analogue audio and component video outputs.
If you have a 3D Flat Screen TV, Sony also can display 3D Video both online and via USB. Whether you are streaming the BBC iPlayer in HD or with its Video Unlimited digital movie service, we have been told the sound and image quality is great.
