Netgear introduces new streaming players
Most homes in developed countries these days come with not only any Internet connection, but rather, a speedy one at that. Having said that, the way we consume media has also changed rather dramatically, no longer do we rent DVDs from a store or a kiosk, but rather, we prefer to just stream whatever we want to watch right there and then onto the TV itself. Not only that, it has been possible for a fair number of years now to be able to record what we do not have the time to watch for consumption later on. Well, Netgear has introduced a trio of new streaming players to the masses, where all of them offer features such as 1080p HD, built-in WiFi, Intel WiDi, access to personal media and hundreds of popular streaming channels including Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu and many others.
All three of the new Netgear streaming players fall under the NeoTV name, where one unique point of these new streaming players would be the fact that they are one of the first few in the market to support the HTML 5 standard, a standard which is rapidly being adopted by content providers as the ideal method for streaming entertainment into homes.
You will find in the new NeoTV Streaming Players a widespread use of HTML 5, HLS, and digital rights management tools like Microsoft PlayReady in order to provide access to hundreds of HD streaming channels in addition to a variety of entertainment features, where you as the end user or consumer will be able to enjoy an outstanding home theater experience.
If you have wanted to get a smart TV but have yet to make the upgrade, then fret not – the new Netgear streaming players will be able to get the job done just as well for a presumably far more affordable price. Not only that, if you are not satisfied with the content availability or ease-of-use of your smart TV, NeoTV will be able to broaden your access to content and features apps which are capable of transforming smartphones into remote control devices, making it a snap to find and play content.
The streaming players are the NeoTV (NTV300), NeoTV PRO (NTV300S) and NeoTV MAX (NTV300SL), playing nice with Netflix, Vudu, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Best Buy CinemaNow, Pandora, Rhapsody and many other channels.
The whole Netgear NeoTV Streaming Player range is already in the US, where the NeoTV Streaming Player (NTV300), NeoTV PRO Streaming Player (NTV300S) , and the NeoTV MAX Streaming Player (NTV300SL) will retail for $49.99, $59.99, and $69.99, respectively.
