The good: The WD TV Play offers an improved interface and a greater selection of content than before. Setup is easy and the connection stayed solid during testing. The WD TV Play is one of the best values available in the market.
The bad: Missing some important apps, including Amazon Instant and live sports apps. The device couldn’t playback all test videos despite listed compatibility. The gaming apps aren’t very worthwhile.
The bottom line: The WD TV Play is the best alternative to Roku and Apple TV for viewers looking to access their personal media collection.
