NETGEAR's media players include the $199 (MSRP) ITV2000 Internet TV Player, which looks interesting, but won't ship until "early Summer". This is the first off-the-shelf device that I have seen that NETGEAR says will allow video streamed from any website to be displayed on a TV—without requiring a computer.

The "slightly larger than a deck of cards" player connects via Ethernet or optional wireless USB adapter and also will play paid movies on demand from and downloaded videos. This I gotta see.

Looks like NETGEAR is using CES to officially roll out the cheaper, BYOD version of its powerful ReadyNAS Pro six-bay NAS, the RNDP600E ReadyNAS Pro Pioneer Edition. NETGEAR didn't provide feature details or pricing in the announcement. But you can find a comparison matrix here and I have been told that street should be around $1200.

The last group of products are available to service providers only. Intro'd were the WNMR834 Wireless-N MoCA Router (shown below), CGD34NT DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Data Gateway with 802.11n Wireless, DVG631G and DVG834G Families of ADSL2+ Voice/Data Gateways, VVG834 and VVG934 Families of VDSL2 Voice Data Gateways and EVG834N Gigabit Ethernet Voice Data Gateway.
