It’s great that we can access most of the TV shows and movies we watch from our computer, tablet or phone, but what about when you want to sit down with your family to watch a movie on that big screen TV in your family room? Or you want to show off your vacation pictures (that are on your computer) to a group of people? Ahh! Western Digital WD TV Live Hub to the rescue!

Digital Storage

Not only can you watch internet TV with the WD TV Live Hub, but it has a 1 TB hard drive to store video, photos or music. I decided to back up all of my family photos to the WD TV Live Hub drive and now we can look at photos on our TV. My kids love being able to access the photos themselves.

We connected the WD TV Live Hub to our home network and now we can access all our digital files on any computer (Mac or PC) in our home. My kids often needs pictures of themselves for class projects. I have given them all access to the photos from every computer they use. That saves me from having to search through all the photos for them.

As you can see from the photo above, the menu is easy to use and you can customize the photo. My kids didn’t have any problems figuring out where they needed to go.

Watching Internet TV

We subscribe to Netflix streaming and Hulu Plus, so having access to both services (plus many more) on the WD TV Live Hub is a huge plus. And if the movie or show is available in HD and you are watching on an HD TV, you will be able to watch in HD!
