Sony Readying Apple TV Competitor
Sony last week unveiled a new streaming media player that will serve as a competitor to Apple TV, Roku and other such products.
The SMP-N200, which sports 3D capability, will arrive next month at an MSRP of $99.
“The Streaming Player is ideal for consumers who want to upgrade to a connected television, but are happy with the TV they currently have,” Charles Speidel, vice president of Sony’s Home Audio and Video Group, said as part of the announcement. “Whether using it in the family room or on a secondary television in the house this new set-top-box offers access to the full complement of streaming content available from Sony, without committing to the cost of a new Bravia.”
