WD TV Live update brings Facebook, Blockbuster

Western Digital on Tuesday announced it has added new online services to its lineup of WD TV media players. The WD TV Live Plus media player will have access to rent or buy new movie releases at the same time as they are launched on Blu-ray or DVD through Blockbuster On Demand in the US. Both the WD TV Lice Plus and the Live will also get newfound Facebook access, letting users upload photos and videos, update their status, view their wall and get News Feed info.

Other new sites and services users can now access include personalized on-demand music service Deezer, free web TV from studios, networks and video sites through Flingo and weather information thanks to AccuWeather.com. To accommodate text input, the WD Live TV products will also now support wireless USB keyboards with a USB dongle.

The WD TV Live and WD TV Live Plus start at $130. Previously, only the $200 WD TV Live Hub offered Facebook and AccuWeather access.
