Sony has officially announced that its netbox streamer, the SMP-N100, will be available in the UK from next month.

We at Pocket-lint had previously reported on the internet-based media streamer, but this is the first time that we've had confirmation that it will go on sale here.

The N100 allows you to access the Bravia internet apps, such as YouTube, and Daily Motion, as well as VOD services like Lovefilm and Demand Five.

You can also hook the device up to your home network via Wi-Fi or Ethernet to stream media (it's DLNA compliant) and you can even control the device using your iOS or Android devices. There's a front loading USB port for easy connection to your storage devices.

The N100 also gives you a gateway to Qriocity - Sony's new cloud-based music and video service and you can watch back videos in full 1080p HD.

Sound should be top-notch too, due to its compatibility with the latest high-definition audio codecs, such as dts 2.0+Digital Out and Dolby Digital Plus.

There's no word on pricing just yet, but with a Stateside value of $129, expect the Sony SMP-N100 to retail for around £100 on this side of the pond.
