Western Digital's $70 WD TV Play Undercuts Apple's Streaming Box

Maximum PC: Apple may have hit an affordable price point with its $99 Apple TV streaming set-top box, but Western Digital's new WD TV Play box comes in even lower at $70 MSRP. It's the entry-level model in WD's media player lineup and is similar in function to the now mid-range WD TV Live, minus the ability to play MPEG2 videos and DTS audio. Otherwise, the WD TV Play is able to stream popular Internet channels like Netflix and Hulu Plus, and can tap into your photos, music, and movies from other networked devices.
