Former Roku licensee Netgear is now taking them and Apple TV on as they go solo with their latest digital media streamer. The new NeoTV 200, which we first learned of last month, “turns your TV into a Smart TV” for all of 80 bucks. Like Roku, the requisite Netflix app is present, but Netgear appears to have slightly better hardware specs for the money (when it comes to networking and audio output)… along with a YouTube app and Vudu video ondemand. Further, free Android and iPhone smartphone remote control apps will be made available. Yet like the Roku, there appears to be a de-emphasis on local media playback.While there’s no USB port, Netgear could conceivably provide LAN playback capabilities via DLNA or similar. Interestingly, from the promotional video above, there looks to be a Showtime app headed to these over-the-to platforms… finally! Amazon’s got the NeoTV 200 shipping on October 10th, so it won’t be long now.
