Technology is a huge part of my family’s every day life. It seems we are always jumping between the television, computers (yes, plural), Maggie’s new love – the tablet and of course our smart phones. Staying connected is important to our family. There are many days that my husband also works from home – stretching our wireless connection even more thin.
Western Digital is changing the way families take advantage of the digital lifestyle, featuring the WD TV media player family and most recently their first line of wireless home networking products, designed specifically to accelerate movies, video and gaming, providing a high-definition entertainment experience.
Check out these facts and figures from Western Digital about how typical families are using technology for family entertainment.
- 147.4 million people watch video on the Internet.
- The number of U.S. homes paying a multichannel provider for TV services last year actually declined by 1.5 million, or about 1.5 percent.
- In the fourth quarter of 2011 shows that 33 percent of consumers streamed a movie or TV show from the Internet.
Western Digital’s newest products features HD dual-band wireless N routers with FasTrack technology creating a smooth streaming experience in up to Full-HD 1080p quality. These new routers allow for even a technology novice to “plug and go” with an easy setup. And while I may not need parental controls just yet, I am thrilled to learn that these new devices offer easy customize, monitor or change the settings of the network, including setting parental controls, allowing users to program per device and time limits.
The Western Digital My Book Live Personal Cloud offers centralized storage and backup for all the computers in your house. Digital files can be accessed remotely – anytime, anywhere! Having a dependable backup system in place is important to me and Western Digital understand that importance.
