[After Acorn] [Companies }
Net Products was set up in 1996 by Hermann Hauser to produce an OEM version of the Acorn NetStation NC for NetChannel. NetChannel was the UK subsiduary of a US company planning to offer Internet acces on the TV via a Set Top Box and telephone line.
Since the NetProducts NetStation was designed for use with NetChannel which was closed down by NTL (now VirginMedia) some time ago, I suspect that this information is of purely historic value.
Here is the NetStation QuickStart Guide.
Here is the NetStation Users Guide .
Here are some pictures of the NetProducts NetStation:
