D-Link announced today its latest streaming device, which is a stripped-down version of its Boxee Box , called the MovieNite.

Unlike the Boxee, that in addition to streaming can play back content stored on a plugged-in external hard drive, the MovieNite is a stream-only device. It supports popular steaming services, including Vudu, Netflix, Pandora and YouTube.

To make up for this, the new device costs just about one third the price of the Boxee Box, at around $60.

The MovieNite comes with just one HDMI port and supports up to 1080p high-def streaming content. It supports wireless N standard and a Ethernet port for network connectivity. The device also offers additional streaming capabilities, including the ability to view live mydlink-enabled network cameras on a TV as well as online photo sharing via the Picasa app.

In addition to the included remote control, users can also download free MovieNite apps for iOS- or Android-based mobile devices to control the new player. The new MovieNite streaming player is available now.
