Not a good device for Netflix

Rickymem, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: This device is "OK" if you want to use it for Yupptv. But it is horrible for Netflix. By mistake I have selected my kids profile on Netflix on the NeoTV and I am not able to change that profile. I did complete factory reset, still it is not allowing me to change the profile. Now I have to watch only kids movies that was setup for my kids. Planning to get some other device for netflix. Also this device does not have an option to select subtitles for the movies.

WiDi does not work with Windows 8

B. Copeland, Amazon
27 December 2012
  • Summary: I went with this player instead of a Roku because of the WiDi feature. I was very disappointed when I hooked it up and the device was not compatible with Windows 8. After looking around, I found I wasn't the only one to be disappointed by that and it appears that Netgear isn't all that interested in fixing the problem.

No Windows 8 connectivity

Stephen K. Horn "Chefkowboy", Amazon
29 November 2012
  • Summary: Streams beautifully. Connected with MyWiFi on Windows 7, which presented some difficulties with connection. Couldn't find the device a couple of times, had to unplug to reconnect. Now loaded Windows 8 and Intel has not provided an upgrade for the NEO TV so I can't use right now. Tried contacting support but registration tells me my serial number isn't valid. Wow, I guess Netgear is a crap company after all.

Not enough content

Sameer, Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: We are currently using the Netgear NeoTV Pro as a Netflix interface :( All the other content offered via the Netgear servers are not usable. The content partners offered are all B tiered services. Most of the content are trailers or videos that are less than 5 mins. Even the remote iphone app is stopped working.

Not good for Hulu Plus

mtnbiker72, Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: I got this because the net top I own just isn't up to streaming Hulu Plus. Well this product isn't either, in an attempt to watch shows on Hulu it would lose it's connection and I would have to "retry". When it did play it was smooth but too many interruptions which I have not experienced with Hulu Plus on my net top or on any of my laptops so I know it is a Netgear issue and not a Hulu issue. Also videos loaded VERY slow in both Hulu and Netflix.

I tried to leave the following feedback but ironically thier website is malfunctioning. "Yesterday, I talked to a technician for hours. He spent hours trying to solve my issue with the NTV200s.

Sooooo slow!

Julie R, Amazon
15 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to play Netflix on my TV. Once you get a movie going, it's just fine. But getting to that point is insanely difficult! Pulling up any menu is extremely slow; loading a page of titles, such as my instant queue, takes several minutes to load, and to highlight the next selection takes at least 30 seconds. Forget browsing movies on your TV this way!
