The digital media hub is a set-top box that is marketed under many different names. Gotta love free enterprise! See digital media hub and set-top box.

Hub or Server
Products with the following descriptions may also be "digital media servers" as well as digital media hubs. A media server may provide all the functions of a media hub but in order to be a "server," it must have local storage for content. The media is typically copied onto the server's hard drive or solid state drive (SSD) from a USB drive, external drive or from a PC or Mac via the home network. See digital media server.


   See Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV and Chromecast.
