Verismo VuNow POD

Verismo Networks on Tuesday announced the release of its VN100SD device which allows users to watch YouTube videos and other online video content directly on their TVs without having to connect to a computer first. The PoD connects to TVs like a DVD player would, requiring a wired Internet connection via its Ethernet port, before offering an easy interface with YouTube.

Users will be able to sign into their YouTube accounts and search for videos using the interface and a soft keypad. The Verismo VuNow PoD is available for purchase online now, priced at $99. It can be upgraded to support Bit Torrents and live global Internet TV channels for a $29 fee, and Verismo promises CinemaNow support is coming soon. A high-definition capable version (up to 720p) of the product, the VN1000HD retails for $149 and swaps the standard definition version's S-video output for an HDMI output.
