HP has been selling its interesting Wi-Fi enabled MediaSmart TVs for a while now. The HDTVs offer a direct connection to the Internet allowing users to watch Internet programs on the big screen without needing a computer.
HP announced this week that it was the first company to start including Windows Media Center Extender on Internet connected TVs to allow users to send content directly from their PC to the TV. This makes it easy to view your PC stored images, video and more on the big screen HDTV.
“Consumers everywhere want new ways to discover, enjoy and share digital entertainment and HP is making this opportunity real,” said Carlos Montalvo, vice president of marketing and services, Connected Entertainment Business, HP. “With the ability to use a premium HDTV to easily access on-demand web and personal media from any PC in the home, there’s never been a more fun time to hang out in the living room with friends and family.”
