HP is making YouTube content available through its HP MediaSmart connected entertainment products, such as the upcoming MediaSmart Connect digital media receiver and the high-definition MediaSmart TV.
Viewers can log into YouTube via the remote control and watch video content on HP MediaSmart products, as well as create playlists. The products aggregate digital media from multiple networked PCs into one menu for HDTV playback.
“With the addition of YouTube to the HP MediaSmart platform, consumers will have even more ways to enjoy the latest entertainment on the Internet,” said Carlos Montalvo, VP of marketing and services, connected entertainment business, HP. “Bringing YouTube to HP MediaSmart products will let users browse and select a series of videos, then relax and enjoy the show on their big screens.”
