Boxee just announced a new dongle that'll let Boxee users watch Live TV on their Boxee Box. Sounds cool! Well, sort of. Boxee's Live TV only supports local networks and costs 50 bucks but it will route everything you watch through Boxee's sweet interface.
For those of you who like Boxee but couldn't be bothered getting the Box for your home theater setup, D-Link is now offering you the remote that came with it for your Mac or PC. Just to show they care.
As Jason noted in his review, the Boxee Box was a really good local media streamer, but the software was also pretty damn buggy. Well hopefully that will change for the better now that Boxee has issued their first firmware update. Not only does it offer 30 bug fixes, it adds improvements to navigational and sorting…
So it's shipping, and will support Netflix and Hulu Plus before the end of the year, but what's actually inside D-Link's Boxee Box? iFixit found "build quality that rivals Apple's [TV]," and "is much more solid than the Logitech Revue."
The D-Link Boxee Box (in addition to Boxee clients for PC and Mac) will offer HD movie rentals when it lands in living rooms in coming weeks, courtesy of a new partnership with Vudu. Vudu's full HD rentals—1080p, Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 Surround Sound—cost 2 bucks a pop for two nights of viewing. Not a bad service to…
For anyone who pre-ordered the Boxee Box on blind faith that it would one day reach your door: the adorable little set-top box will arrive on the doorstep as early as November 11th. Everyone else will have to wait some.
The Boxee Box is really, finally on its way, and you'll be able to pre-order it today for $200. One quick switch-up before they're out the door: the boxes will house Intel Atom processors instead of NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipsets.
Uh oh. Looks like it'll be a while before you can get your hands on a D-Link Boxee Box. Apparently the device's availability date has been changed to November:
There isn't a whole lot we don't already know about the Boxee Box, the set-top box developed by D-Link and media center software company Boxee which stands to basically ruin the set-top box party for every other player. Except, that is, the price: Initial reports had it pegged at $200; now a needlessly cryptic press…
Long the nerd connoisseur's do-it-all media software, Boxee has bigger ambitions. Not just a box. But the conquer-the-whole-world, embedded-on-every-TV kind. And the newest release of Boxee looks mighty capable of doing just that.
Boxee's post on the box has nothing in the way of details yet, so I'm just going to have to take a WILD guess at what this thing will look like: It'll be a box, with an Ion chipset, a medium-sized HDD, HDMI-out and a Boxee sticker and a $200 price tag. Why? Because nothing else would really make any sense.
