LAS VEGAS--If you have a FreeAgent Theater+ from Seagate and are a fan of Internet media streaming, I have some good news.
Seagate showcased at CES 2010 plans to collaborate with content and technology providers, including YouTube, vTuner, and Mediafly to deliver access to more user-generated and licensed Internet content directly on the FreeAgent Theater+ HD media player.
Seagate's FreeAgent Theater+ media player is one of the digital content players on the market that allows people to play collections of photos, movies, and music saved on a FreeAgent Go or any other external hard drive, directly on a TV. … Read more
Do you want to turn a USB hard drive into a cheap, easy network-attached storage device? Seagate's DockStar is designed to let you do just that. Like the preceding Dock+ model, the DockStar can host a FreeAgent Go drive in its cradle, plus up to three other USB drives.

FreeAgent Theater HD Media Player currently comes in three versions--two include FreeAgent Go storage drives (either 250GB or 500GB) as part of the package, while a third model is a "bring your own drive" version that retails for substantially less.
Western Digital recently released an HD media player that was designed to leverage the content people were storing on that company's external storage devices. Now Seagate's followed suit with a similar product, the Seagate FreeAgent Theater HD media player, which connects to your TV and plays back video, pictures, and music from external storage devices.
Seagate describes the FreeAgent Theater as an accessory that enables "people to easily enjoy stored digital media on their TV screens rather than their computer monitors." It works like this: you transfer files from your computer to your FreeAgent Go--or another … Read more
