T3 - a technology magazine here in the UK, just reviewed the Hub along with Apple TV etc from the point of view of IPTV. It was interesting to see that whislt the reviewer felt the Hub was the best player, it lost points due to the lack of IPTV. WD would have a killer product if it allowed IPTV but it seems too scared of this. Perhaps copyright fears and the RIAA are stopping this. Shame because this is the one factor which will optentially kill this product.
I really doubt that they are afraid, this is more related to copyrights.
Copyright and being afraid is something which seems to go hand in hand nowdays. AKA Homeland secrutiy domain take downs, ACS Law shakedown, special 301 report… don’t get me started.
