Netgear introduced the NTV200 NeoTV Streaming Player, which instantly turns any television with an HDMI port into a smart TV connected to a world of streaming movies, TV shows, music, videos, news and games from Netflix, Vudu, YouTube and many other sources.
The NeoTV Player brings you a wide choice of news and information through channels and connects you to friends through Facebook and Twitter channels. Vudu Apps, a companion to Vudu HD movies, offers a wide selection of free channels with videos, music, photo browsing, news, weather and social networking. There's also a collection of free casual games.
Netgear provides two easy ways to connect the NeoTV Player to the Internet — through built-in high-speed 300Mbps WiFi, perfect for delivering 1080p HD streaming, or through an Ethernet cable. The player also has optical audio out (S/PDIF) for high-quality surround sound.
A free NeoTV Remote app also turns your iPhone or Android smartphone into a remote control for the NeoTV Player. For those without a smartphone, the NeoTV Player comes with a regular remote control.
Pricing and Availability
The Netgear NeoTV Streaming Player (NTV200) will be available later in September 2011 in the United States at $79.99.
