Netgear Digital Entertainer Live player
A Web video streamer that looks just like one of Netgear's routers? That's what the Digital Entertainer Live turned out to be. This small set-top box had its own remote control, and could pull in content from YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and pay-per-view movies from Roxio's CinemaNow service.
The carryover here to Google TV, is that Netgear included a search tool that would let users parse the Web for video clips, then watch them right from the box. Google TV is promising to do something similar, though using Google's own search index.
