D-Link Announces MovieNite
D-Link added another option to the over the top (OTT) media streamer market today with the just released “MovieNite”. While the name isn’t that interesting, features like 1080p, VUDU and Netflix coupled with a price of $60 are. The PR (available after the click) doesn’t mention if Netflix is the full fidelity experience (5.1 + subtitles) so we’ll have to wait for some proper reviews to find out where the device ends up in what is becoming a crowded market.
