    Analysts: Blah blah Internet TV boxes are blah blah a dead end

    Standalone set-top boxes like the Boxee Box and the Roku Player are good because they add Internet content to heretofore unconnected TVs. That’s a good thing. However, analysts at the Diffusion Group believe that the devices will eventually peter out to be replaced by Blu-Ray devices. Read More

    More details emerge about the Boxee Box

    Everyone, where everyone means Internet nerds, has been talking a lot about the Boxee Box the last few days. For good reason too. It brings the ultra-cool software to your living room in an official product. AppleTV hacking will soon not be required to use Boxee on your HDTV. But with all the talk recently, some points have been missing. No more, Andrew from Boxee just posted a bunch of info… Read More

    Boxee and D-Link present the Boxee Box

    We know Boxee. We like Boxee. And when we heard Boxee was planning on dropping some dedicated hardware, our hearts… well, maybe they leapt a little bit, but there was also some skepticism there. Part of the fun of Boxee has been its hardware-agnostic nature. Put it on your AppleTV, put it on your micro-PC, put it on your iPhone — whatever. Would dedicated hardware take away the fun?

  • Boxee + Clicker = so close, yet so far

    Boxee + Clicker = so close, yet so far

    I don't watch a lot of television programming, and I'm not particularly patient with the way "Big Media" treats me, the consumer. I really wanted to like Flash Forward, but it's pretty clear that the show is more interested in hitting that 100 episodes mark to earn syndication than it is in delivering an interesting, gripping story. So I gave up on that, and on a lark decided to try Fringe, to… Read More

    Next up on Boxee: Sony Picture's Crackle

    Boxee is only days away from announcing the details about its upcoming hardware venture, and the good news keeps rolling. Crackle, which is a site I've never heard of but is apparently a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment, is the latest video site to be available on Boxee. Actually, this is really good news for Boxee users. Crackle has some great shows. Read More

    Hulu Gets Ripped Out Of Rippol

    We've seen in the past year that Hulu gets testy about their video content being used on other sites or platforms, with Boxee and TV.com both forced to remove Hulu content from their sites and applications. Now startup Rippol is facing the same fate. Rippol just publicly launched their video discovery sites at yesterday's Real-Time CrunchUp, which combines both complex algorithms with user… Read More

    The Boxee Box will rock your sox!

    Boxee, everyone's favorite HTPC software, just announced that the company just partnered with its first CE company. But that's all the company is saying. We don't know anything else. However, there is an event coming up on December 7th right around the corner from John's house where we should learn more. I'm already excited though. Just think what this means. Read More

    Myka ION brings Intel Atom and ION graphics into the living room

    Think of the Myka ION as a nettop built for your HDTV. The little media streamer utilizes an 1.6 GHz Intel Atom 330 CPU and an NVIDIA ION GPU to provide your TV with quality high-definition content. Actually, the Myka ION is more computer than dedicated media playback device, which is good thing. Well, a Linux-powered computer with Boxee and XBMC installed, that is. Read More

    Real-Time Social Identity Platform Cliqset Launches Desktop And Boxee Apps

Cliqset aims to be a one-stop-shop for social communications, pulling in content from close to 70 social networks and services, including… Read More

    Boxee Watches $6 Million More In Funding Stream In

    Boxee, the media center software startup, has won a lot of fans with its open approach to streaming content. And as a result it has won some more money, to the tune of a $6 million second round, led by Boston's General Catalyst Partners. The new money will be used for growth: Both expanding the team and expanding the service's reach in the market, we're told. But why now? After all, Boxee raised… Read More
