Today D-Link announced it has expanded the capabilities of digital media adapters (DMAs) by adding more than 200 channels of Internet TV to its best-selling MediaLounge(TM) Wireless HD Media Player (DSM-520), a wireless device that allows users to enjoy videos, music, photos and more from a PC on a TV using a simple remote control.
More than 200 online channels serving millions of Internet videos are brought to the TV by the D-Link HD MediaLounge Player using active-TV technology, a new service that allows easy access to Internet video and entertainment sites with a remote control.
The active-TV line-up includes programming from 36 U.S. channels, offering movies and music videos, radio stations, sports, news entertainment and shopping. In addition to YouTube, some of the notable channels include: Comedy Central, AOL Video, CinemaNow, Google Video, Movielink, ROOtv Music Videos, Akimbo, MTV, Musicmatch, Napster, VH1, ESPN, FOX Sports, MSN TV Today, Reuters News, Yahoo! Sports and eBay.
The new Internet TV lineup also includes international programming from 14 countries, including the BBC and other networks from the United Kingdom, along with digital entertainment from Australia, Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, France, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway, Poland and Taiwan.
The D-Link MediaLounge with expanded Internet programming is now shipping. Existing DSM-520 customers will receive a free upgrade to their products that will allow them to access the new channels. The upgrade is available now for Microsoft(R) Windows(R) XP and Windows Vista(TM) operating systems.
"Our MediaLounge Player has revolutionized the way people receive and watch digital entertainment. Now you can expand your viewing beyond the PC and bring a vast amount of Internet TV directly to your living room," said Steven Joe, President and CEO of D-Link Systems, Inc. "There are other media players out there, but they only provide limited programming. With D-Link's MediaLounge player, the channel line up is already far-reaching
and continually expanding."
