Patriot Offers Low Cost Streaming Media Player

Posted Tue Oct 20, 2009 at 02:00 PM PDT by Mike Attebery

Supporting a wide variety of file formats, Patriot’s Box Office Media Player offers an inexpensive 1080p streaming solution.

If you’re looking to do a bit of streaming on the cheap, Patriot’s got your back. With a 1080p output and support for Dolby and DTS surround sound; the Box Office Media Player has its bases covered. While it doesn’t come with a hard drive, the storage is expandable thanks to a 2.5” SATA slot.

Patriot’s new media player features support for basic music and photo formats, and a fairly large variety of video formats including AVI, WMV, MPEG-4, and MKV. It can take media either directly from an attached USB storage device or – using the built in Ethernet port or an optional wi-fi adapter – via your home network.

The Patriot Box Office Media Player is yet to be released, but is available for preorder on Amazon at $129. A mail-in rebate of $30 knocks that down to $99 for those that remember to send it in, convenient since the wireless adapter for the device seems to run about $30 itself.
