NETGEAR Brings Live TV To NeoTV Streaming Players With SlingPlayer

Addition of SlingPlayer to NeoTV means you can extend your living room TV viewing experience to any TV in your home

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), (www.netgear.com), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, announced today at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES®) the addition of Sling Media's SlingPlayer® to the NETGEAR line of NeoTV Streaming® Players. SlingPlayer software ensures that you will never miss your favorite programming by extending the live TV experience to any TV enabled by a NeoTV Streaming Player, whether NeoTV (NTV300), NeoTV PRO (NTV300S), NeoTV MAX (NTV300SL) or the just-announced NeoTV PRIME with Google TV™ (GTV100).

With the combination of a NETGEAR NeoTV Streaming Player and a Slingbox®, you can now easily enjoy streaming of your favorite live TV shows, sporting events, recorded programming and even premium movies on any TV using your Internet connection. The living room TV experience can now be extended to a second or third TV and even remotely to a TV outside of your home using SlingPlayer on a NeoTV, without having to lease additional set-top boxes from your cable or satellite service provider.

In addition to SlingPlayer, NETGEAR has also added TuneIn Radio and ShopNBC to a growing list of hundreds of existing NeoTV streaming channels including Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu, Pandora, Rhapsody, YouTube, Intela Wireless Display (WiDi) and many more. TuneIn Radio offers streaming music, sports and news from every corner of the earth, with over 70,000 radio stations and 2 million on-demand programs, while the ShopNBC channel gives you access to live streaming feeds from one of the most popular home shopping networks. Another enhancement to the international content available via NeoTV is WKNTV, which offers Korean programs that include both live streaming and video-on-demand (VOD) content.

"The line between broadcast live TV and broadband streaming continues to narrow," said Damir Skripic, product line manager for connected entertainment at NETGEAR. "With the addition of SlingPlayer, Slingbox owners can now use their Internet connection to stream live or recorded TV programming to NeoTV Streaming Players connected to any TVs at home or even remotely."

NeoTV Streaming Player (NTV300) is a simple-to-use device that's an ideal solution for streaming thousands of movies, TV shows or songs to TVs in full 1080p HD and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound. In addition to all core NeoTV features, NeoTV PRO (NTV300S) also offers Intel® WiDi, giving consumers the ability to wirelessly display their compatible laptop screens on their TVs at up to 1080p full-HD resolution. Building on the features of NeoTV PRO, NeoTV MAX (NTV300SL) extends the home theater experience a step further by offering a two-sided remote control with a full keyboard, and giving you the ability to play your personal media files from a range of external devices, including USB hard disk drives, USB thumb drives, and DLNA Certified® media servers. NeoTV MAX is an honoree in the 2013 CES® Innovations for Design and Engineering Awards program.
