The Co-Star turns any HDTV into a smart TV and features 1080p and 3D support; and enables users to access full screen web browsing with Adobe Flash Player and HTML 5, as well as access to entertainment apps such as the OnLive Game Service, Netflix, YouTube and more. That is available without switching inputs or remotes thanks to the universal touchpad remote with keyboard, Vizio said. The Co-Star is said to be the first stream player to offer video games on demand. Through OnLive, users can demo, watch and play hundreds of top-tier video games directly from the “cloud,” eliminating the need for an independent game console, Vizio said. The unit also offers apps such as Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, iHeartRadio and more – all available for download through the Google Play Store. To pre-order visit: www.vizio.com/costar.
