D-Link adds MovieNite media hub

D-Link threw itself into low-cost media hubs Tuesday with the MovieNite. Borrowing from the design cues of the Apple TV and Roku 2, the device at $60 is one of the least expensive capable of 1080p video. Its primary sources are Netflix, Vudu, and YouTube for video as well as Pandora for streaming music and Picasa for photos.

The hub can work with D-Link's mydlink network cameras to monitor other parts of the home. Both Android and iOS apps will be available soon to steer the hardware when the included simple remote isn't as practical. MovieNite owners can get the device on a TV either through HDMI 1.4 or a single-plug RCA jack, while Ethernet and 802.11n Wi-Fi provide the Internet connection.

An unusual partnership has made Walmart the exclusive home of the MovieNite, which should be in stores today.
