That's all fine and good but have you noticed that unless you have a Blu-ray player, there's just a lack of high-definition content in this country.
Well, if you're tech savvy, that's not a problem of course - geeks like us have been getting video podcasts, trailers and some stuff off the Internet for some time now.
The problem, of course, is how to play the files you've downloaded. You can easily connect a bulky PC capable of playing HD content to your HDTV, but Western Digital has a more elegant solution in the WD TV.
