Own a WDTV Live or Live Plus and feeling left out now that the appilicious 1TB WDTV Hub has arrived? Well, WDTV hasn’t forsaken you. Their latest firmware update brings new apps including Facebook, AccuWeather, and Flingo. Additionally, USB keyboards are now supported to facilitate text entry — I assume this includes wireless HID keyboards. Lastly, the WDTV Live Plus (our review) also receives that Blockbuster Video on Demand service found on the Hub. (However, they’re not long for this world.)
Installing the update is as simple as firing up your networked set-top box and awaiting the upgrade prompt. Alternately, a USB update option will be available soon. Which doesn’t make much sense (beyond disaster recovery of a bricked device).
