HP offers direct YouTube

HP on Tuesday announced a partnership with YouTube that will enable users of the company's HP MediaSmart connected entertainment products to view YouTube videos on their TVs, using nothing but a remote control. The company's MediaSmart products already make accessing digital media content from networked home PCs simple with one menu. In a similar fashion as Apple TV, the new alliance will bring full-screen YouTube videos to users' living rooms, requiring them only to log in to their YouTube accounts via the keyboard-less MediaSmart interface.

HP's MediaSmart lineup includes HDTVs, receiver, servers and network storage devices, with the former two featuring 802.11n wireless network connections.

HP MediaSmart products provide access to dozens of services from the Internet, including movie purchase or rentals from CinemaNow, photo sharing or printing from Snapfish, and streaming radio from Live365.
