NETGEAR Unveils NeoTV Streaming Players That Are Smarter Than Your Average Smart TV

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NETGEAR ®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today announced a new family of next-generation streaming players that deliver a superior connected home entertainment experience. The three new NETGEAR NeoTV® Streaming Players are among the first to support the HTML 5 standard, which is rapidly being adopted by content providers as the ideal method for streaming entertainment into homes. The new NeoTV Streaming Players use HTML 5, HLS, and digital rights management tools like Microsoft PlayReady® to provide access to hundreds of HD streaming channels and a variety of entertainment features that offer an outstanding home theater experience for consumers.  

The new NETGEAR streaming players are perfect for upgrading standard TVs to smart TVs.  Additionally, if you are unsatisfied with the content availability or ease-of-use of your smart TV, NeoTV will broaden your access to content and features apps that turn smartphones into remote control devices to simplify finding and playing content.

The streaming players NeoTV (NTV300), NeoTV PRO (NTV300S) and NeoTV MAX (NTV300SL) are perfect for streaming thousands of movies, TV shows or songs from Netflix, Vudu, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Best Buy CinemaNow, Pandora, Rhapsody and many other channels to your big screen TV in full 1080p HD and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound. All three streaming players offer flexible Internet connectivity through built-in WiFi or a wired Ethernet connection. Each streaming player includes a remote control featuring one-touch Quick Start buttons to ensure easy access to your favorite streaming channels like Netflix, YouTube and others. An optional free remote control app is available for download from Google Play® or from the Apple App Store. The app turns an Apple® iPhone®, iPad®, iPod® Touch, Android® smartphone or tablet into a simple touch screen remote control for any of the NeoTV Streaming Players.

According to a study by Parks Associates, the percentage of connected device owners going online every month to watch streaming movies and TV shows grew nearly 20% from the third quarter of last year to early 2012. NeoTV Streaming Players feature higher performance processors for faster navigation and support for HTML5 streaming channels, providing a rich, interactive and dynamic streaming experience. These enhancements strongly position the NeoTV Streaming Player line to take advantage of the rapid growth in web-based content delivery.
