There's also streaming from Android phones using the aVia media app, which Netgear will be preloading on the NeoTV PRIME, and the PrimeTime app for holistic search of content across live TV, app, or web. The Prime's remote, meanwhile, has an integrated keyboard for swifter search, plus a trackpad and directional pad.

As for the SlingPlayer integration, Netgear's deal with the company means users will be able to stream content to a NeoTV box, such as from the recently announced range priced from $49.99. It's also loaded on the new PRIME version.
