While it was at the LG press conference that Netflix announced its Netflix Recommended TV program, it was Hisense who made a point of letting booth visitors know that their TV made the list. This is a little misleading. Netflix stated that Roku TVs are expected to make the list but didn’t specifically name Hisense who makes a Roku TV. Sony, LG, Sharp, and VIZIO are some of the manufacturers whose names are expected to be the first to receive a Netflix Recommended TV logo.

If you're old enough, you'll remember those days in high school when you could show your love by gifting a mixtape (or CD) of music that you created for the object of your affection. Netflix has launched the 2016 equivalent—Flixtape.

Netflix Co-founder and Chief Executive Reed Hastings joined Consumer Technology Association President Gary Shapiro in the opening Keynote of CES 2016 to discuss the history of TV from three broadcast networks to pay TV and VCRs to DVRs and now streaming. The emphasis was that we are moving toward what people want from TV—being able to watch anything we want, anywhere we want—and ended with an announcement that Netflix is now making that happen globally.

“What’s the best way to connect my PC to my TV?” is a question I am frequently asked. While many TVs have PC connections and many laptops have HDMI outputs, there’s still the issue of controlling the computer while sitting on the couch. The NTV-300SL (aka the NeoTV 300 Max) is a great, relatively inexpensive solution that lets you keep your laptop in your lap.

At the CES 2013 NETGEAR press conference, the company announced NeoTV PRIME, a Google TV streaming player that is available now for $129.99. Like other Google TVs, a growing number of apps can be added from the Google Play store. And like other Google TVs, it has global search to find the titles you want whether they are on live TV, streaming Internet services, web pages, or your own media on your home network.

What NETGEAR brings to the PRIME is a full access Chrome web browser. With Flash and HTML 5 plug-ins, it will (theoretically) play videos from any website (though certain websites have blocked Google TV access).

The included two-sided remote has a QWERTY keyboard, appears to be identical to the Vizio's Co-Star Google TV keyboard. The other side has a touchpad mouse control, directional navigation buttons and direct play buttons to immediately access Amazon on Demand, HBO Go, Crackle, Netflix, and YouTube. The YouTube smartphone app will have a "play to Google TV" button to send a video directly to the Google TV YouTube app. There is also a button for MyMedia that brings up the network attached storage (NAS) drives and other DLNA sources including ReadyShare available on NETGEAR routers.
