Seagate Announces New FreeAgent Theater+ HD Media Player


Seagate today unveiled its new FreeAgent Theater+ [Plus] HD media player, the next generation home theater solution designed to instantly connect your digital media library to your home entertainment system.

The FreeAgent Theater+ HD media player leverages a docking system unique to Seagate FreeAgent Go portable drives and accessories, providing a quick way to connect your external hard drive to your television or home entertainment center. After loading the drive with your favorite movies, videos, music and pictures from the home PC, simply slide it into the FreeAgent Theater+ dock to get instant access to your digital media library. With the FreeAgent Theater+ player, you can just sit back, relax, point, click and enjoy as digitally captured memories and your favorite movies come to life in 1080p HD video, DTS 2.0 + Digital Out, or Dolby Digital technology. The interface is easily navigated with the included remote control.

The Seagate FreeAgent Theater+ HD media player includes two additional USB ports for connecting other USB attached storage devices. Also incorporated into FreeAgent Theater+ is an Ethernet port for network connectivity, which allows access to digital media through your home network.
