These days, there are quite a few ways to turn your HDTV into a smart HDTV. In other words, it’s pretty easy for a set-top streamer from Sony to get lost in the likes of Roku and Apple TV.
Well today, Sony’s solution may gain a little popularity. We found the Sony SMP-N200 Streaming Media Player for just $48 on Amazon. This is 40 percent off the product’s list price. That discount also includes Amazon’s free Super Saver shipping.
Sony’s little box can put a slew of services on your TV, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Pandora, and Crackle. (Just remember that additional service fees and/or subscriptions may apply.) It also has a lot of the things you’d want in a streamer. It’s easy to hook to your network, via built-in WiFi. It also has support for 3D and 1080p with an HDMI output. The box even works with Sony’s iOS and Android remote control apps.
One slight standout is that this unit can deliver multiroom audio, via Sony HomeShare. Just add on Sony HomeShare network speakers, and the SMP-N200 box can stream Pandora, Slacker, and even your own MP3 collection to that room—all without wires.
Other features on this box include I/P noise reduction, a USB input, and its very own remote control.
Just remember that when you order through Amazon, you need to make sure Amazon is the seller—not one of the retailer’s third-party merchants. This is the lowest price we’ve seen, and don’t forget the free shipping is included!
