Western Digital's New Streamer Adds Wi-Fi and Spotify

The latest WD TV Live also includes a brand new interface for simpler use.

Western Digital doesn't bother too much with individual names for each version of its media streamers. The newest is the WD TV Live, just like the one before and the one before that.

The name doesn't change, but the device definitely does. The latest addition - and it's amazing it wasn't put in earlier - is built-in Wi-Fi. No more messing about with cords, no more trying to figure out how to get the internet to your TV and no more dealing with complaints of cables running across the ground.

The new WD TV Live player will be shipped with an updated interface as well as Spotify and Dailymotion capabilities.

Jim Welsh, VP of Western Digital, says that the company has a commitment to offering up the best to their customers. "By marrying advanced features of the new wireless WD TV Live with quality content from service providers, including a first of its kind service with Spotify, we are excited to deliver on that commitment."

You can pick up the newest WD TV Live on Amazon for an MSRP of $129.
