Building on the features of NETGEAR NeoTV, NeoTV PRO and NeoTV MAX family of
streaming players, the new NeoTV PRIME with Google TV extends your
entertainment experience beyond just streaming video or even basic TV viewing.
NeoTV PRIME opens up the world of apps from Google Play, delivering access to
a growing library of entertainment including movies, TV shows, and music from
streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, HBO Go, Crackle,
Flixter, Rhapsody, Pandora and many more. Google Play gives you movies and new
releases in HD, music albums, and apps designed specifically for the TV.

NeoTV PRIME supports playback of your personal media from external USB hard
drives and home media servers. With the pre-installed aVia media player app on
NeoTV PRIME, you can play, manage and share your videos, music, and photos
from any of your digital storage and Google Android devices to your big screen
TV. Thanks to the 'My Media' quick-start button on the NeoTV PRIME remote
control, you easily access the media player app with the mere push of a
button.

"Today, more than ever, consumers have to go back and forth through a number
of home theater devices to find the entertainment they want to watch," said
Damir Skripic, product line manager for connected entertainment at NETGEAR.
"With your NeoTV PRIME, you can access apps, live TV programming, and the web
through one home theater device that continues to learn as you watch."

NeoTV PRIME with Google TV offers PrimeTime, an app that helps you find and
watch your favorite movies and TV shows all in one place, whether they are on
live TV, an app, or the web. The remote control has a keyboard that makes it
fast and easy to search for the shows that you want. With the press of a
button, PrimeTime finds content recommended for you by learning what you like
to watch and organizes it so you don't need to scroll through the numerous
pages of a live TV guide, or browse different apps to find the right movie.

The Chrome^browser offers access to the entire web directly on the TV, while
Search enables you to look across multiple sources simultaneously to find your
favorite entertainment. Even more, with the picture-in-picture feature, you
can surf the web while watching live TV, all at the same time.

Thanks to NeoTV PRIME with Google TV, it's never been easier to watch YouTube
on your big-screen TV. Furthermore, when you update the YouTube mobile app on
your Android smartphone or tablet, you will see a new button within the
YouTube mobile app making it possible to send videos from your mobile devices
to NeoTV PRIME with a single tap. Find a video on the YouTube app for Android,
click the TV icon that appears on the app when your Android device and NeoTV
PRIME are connected to the same WiFi network, and the video will play
instantly.

NeoTV PRIME comes with a two-sided remote control, featuring a touchpad and
directional pad on one side and a full-featured QWERTY keyboard on the other,
giving you fast and easy control of all your applications and helping you to
effortlessly search across the web, apps and television listings.
