Philips ships media player box in the UK

Philips has entered the set-top media player segment with its own HMP2000. It connects to displays using HDMI and home networks over integrated Wi-Fi, though there is no Ethernet connection. It does sport a USB port for local media playback, however. Preloaded apps let users connect to Netflix, YouTube, and BBC iPlayer in the UK.

Netflix and YouTube even get their own, dedicated buttons on the remote control. Supported multimedia files include common formats like MPEG1, MPEG2, H.264, and WMV as well as MKV (Matroska) and VC-1, all up to 1080p resolution. Popular music and photo formats get extra support.

The box is now on sale in the UK for 50 (about $79), though whether or not it will ship to the US isn't known. [via SlashGear]
