It seems like every other device that comes out today is designed to allow streaming of media from the Internet to your TV. The feature is being included in many Blu-ray players, new HDTVs, and some game consoles can stream content as well.
Syabas has announced a new settop box called the Popcorn C-200 that is set to launch in July for $299. The device is capable of streaming 30 different video formats from the Internet to your TV including MPEG 1, 2, 4, AVI, H.264, Xvid, MKV, Windows Media, and more.
The box features an integrated LCD for searching and streaming content, the ability to stream Internet radio stations, a wireless RF remote and a gigabit Ethernet connection. A front-loading drive bay can be used for hard drives or Blu-ray drives. Too bad the device lacks Wi-Fi.
