    Members to Benefit with a Netflix One-Click Button on Remote Controls for New Internet Connected TVs, Blu-ray Disc Players and Other Devices that Stream from Netflix



    LOS GATOS, Calif., Jan. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Netflix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) today announced that streaming from Netflix on TVs will soon be as easy as one click of a remote control as a number of the world's leading consumer electronics companies have joined in a development effort to place Netflix-branded one-click buttons on remotes that operate Internet connected TVs, Blu-ray disc players and other devices that connect the Internet to the TV.



    Beginning this Spring, buttons that specify "Netflix" – including some featuring the iconic red Netflix logo – are planned to be situated prominently on remote controls that operate certain new Blu-ray disc players from a variety of companies including Best Buy's in-house Dynex brand, Haier, Memorex, Panasonic, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, and Toshiba. Sharp, Sony, and Toshiba also will place the Netflix one-click button on remote controls for select new Internet-connected TVs. Remote controls for the Boxee, Iomega and Roku set-top boxes also will feature the Netflix one-click remote.

    "For members who want even more convenience when instantly watching TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix, the answer is about to be right in their hands," said Netflix Chief Product Officer Neil Hunt. "No more turning on the TV, going to a home screen and searching for the Netflix icon. With the Netflix one-click remote, it's simply a matter of pushing the Netflix button to instantly watch any of the vast selection of TV shows and movies available to stream from Netflix."

    The Netflix one-click remote is the latest in a series of rapid technological advancements by Netflix to enable Netflix members to instantly watch TV shows and movies streamed by Netflix over the Internet. Today there are more than 250 Netflix ready devices on the market.

    One device to stream Full HD, 3D and digital audio content from up to six A/V devices as well as USB keyboard and mouse integration make the Wireless 3D Media Kit a hub of digital home activity.

    LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- International CES 2011 – January 6-9 – Central Hall #13427 – At the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show, IOGEAR today announces the Wireless 3D Media Kit (GW3DKIT), the company's first device to wirelessly stream HD audio/video and offer 3D support up to 100 feet away.

    Leveraging its own integrated private Wi-Fi (802.11n), the IOGEAR™ Wireless 3D Media Kit broadcasts with almost no latency and no interference from nearby wireless routers.

    A USB port on the GW3DKIT can serve as a wireless keyboard /mouse connection allowing mobile control of a home theater PC or laptop within the 100 foot 3D receiver radius. Full access to stored videos, photos and music or management of online social media or work content is a breeze when combined with an IOGEAR wireless keyboard.(1)


    "There is growing interest in 3D as major display manufacturers continue developing the technology to be more affordable and compelling," says Bill Nguyen, senior marketing manager for IOGEAR. "Our Wireless 3D Media Kit serves a complementary role that allows consumers to experience 3D, HD or standard definition content with more ease than ever before."

    I prefer not to give Netflix a shortcut, I'm expecting them to just be one of MANY great services in the next year.
