Boxee in set top
December 9, 2009
Boxee said on that it would put its software into a set-top box that will go on sale next year. The company announced a partnership with D-Link, a Taiwanese manufacturer of networking equipment, which will make a device that will allow people to browse Internet videos on their TVs.
The companies hope to keep the price of the device under $200.
Boxee collects videos and music from Web sites like Netflix, MLB.TV, Comedy Central and Pandora, and presents it in a visually friendly format that resembles a television directory, while adding some features from social networks.
