The box has HMDI for the TV connection, and 802.11n Wi-Fi - 2.4GHz only, so far as we can see - and Ethernet for the network link. It all runs on Intel's Atom chippage.

Once connected up, you can play internet content, slot in an SD card, or hook up a hard drive to either of the box's two USB ports. It supports pretty much every format there is apart from DRM-encumbered files. ®
