A WD TV Live or a Raspberry Pi Is Your Cheapo-Media-Player-Project Deal of the Day

By Andy Dawson on at

Now that Christmas is over, the retailers are keeping the bargains close to their chests, so the pickings today are fairly slim, but there's a couple of nice media-playing offers.

First up is the Western Digital TV Live, a media player that will handle almost anything you care to chuck at it. Attach a hard drive filled with all of your 'legitimately acquired' movies and TV shows and it'll play them through your TV. There's also built-in catch-up TV, YouTube, Spotify, Netflix and a bunch of other stuff. A veritable snip at only £62.90. Better still, if you're not scared of something slightly more complicated, you can pick up a Raspberry Pi Type B (512MB) for just £25.92 and run XBMC on it to make it into a nifty media player. Go on -- start the new year with a challenge...
