Netgear has decided to upgrade their existing line of media players and has come out with three new ones. They hope that these will be decent competition for Apple TV and Roku's streaming boxes. The basic model the Neo TV will be available for $49.99, while the NeoTV Pro and NeoTV MAX will go for $59.99 and $69.99 respectively. The new line will have HTML 5 support and more content sources compared to previous models, also it will have Push2TV media streamer for pushing media from smartphones or laptops to the big screen.

All of the presented devices will offer Netflix, Vudu, Hulu Plus, Youtube, Best Buy CinemaNow, Pandora and Rhapsody and more to come. The biggest bonus is support for HTML5 which Roku doesn’t have at the moment, as this standard is being adopted by many content producers that are moving into TV platforms. They will also have 3d content support for Vudu and special Just for Kids Netflix interface. “We keep adding content, and bringing HTML5 to this box allows us to provide a couple more content providers that we didn’t have before. A lot of content providers are moving to HTML5. We’re talking to TuneIn radio, we’re talking to Sling Media for their Sling player, we’re talking to all HTML5 guys that will allow us to differentiate ourselves and continue to enhance the value of the product.” Damir Skripic, their product line manage, stated.

The features for the basic model will include an Ethernet port and built in N150 Wi-Fi a basic remote is also included. The PRO edition will support N300 Wi-Fi, Ethernet and also Intel's Wireless Display for streaming from Windows PCs with Intel chips. The top model will feature a QWERTY keyboard on the back of the remote, microSD port, DLNA streaming and 3D Vudu support as well as all other goodies found in the cheaper models. If you still have trouble deciding what to buy here is a little help.
