Nationwide Roku Retail Deal Places MHz Networks International Content in Mainstream

FALLS CHURCH, VA--(Marketwire - November 8, 2010) -  Having launched the MHz Networks On Demand channel via the family of Roku digital video players in February 2010, MHz Networks content has found a new demographic of viewers interested in premier English-accessible international programming, right next to Netflix and Amazon.com subscribers. 

The prospect for additional viewership and growth of the MHz brand is immense with the launch of the new 1080p Netgear-branded Roku player, known as the NTV250, now available in electronic retail stores nationwide including Best Buy, Fry's and Radio Shack.

MHz Networks is one of several on-demand channels featured through the family of digital video players from Roku. MHz Networks is included on the box product packaging next to other mainstream players such as MLB.TV, Pandora, and Flickr, among others. 

The Netgear Roku Player NTV250 is now available in 2000-4000 Best Buy and 3000 Radio Shack stores nationwide and 40 Fry's stores in Northern and Southern California. 

The NTV250, as well as three other exclusively Roku-branded and distributed streaming media players are also available at Roku.com and Amazon.com, including the new Roku HD, XD and XDS which are available, starting at just $59.99. 

Frederick Thomas, MHz Networks Chief Executive says, "MHz Networks is the U.S. destination for premier international content, and Roku is the destination technology for easy, affordable and reliable programming on-demand. We couldn't be happier with our partnership and we know that our audience thinks the Roku technology is cool -- it just doesn't get any better than that."
