Tailored to Your Couch
The Internet gives you the freedom to watch what you want, and the power to choose what you want to pay for. It's awesome. What's not awesome about the internet: no big screen, no HD, no home theater experience, no easy interface designed to sift through the mountains of TV shows, Movies, and content available online. And the real killer: no remote. If only there was a little box that brought the freedom of the Internet to your HDTV in stunning 1080p, Dolby Surround Sound, and had a slick interface to simplify everything and -- wait for it -- a remote to put it all at the tips of your fingers. Too bad nobody has thought of that yet. Oh wait, we did. Haha! Ahem...

See What Your Friends Are Watching
One of the greatest things about the Boxee Box is that if you can't find something to watch, you've got your friends to turn to. Stop watching the same stuff over and over. With the Boxee Box, your friends can see what you've been watching and give fresh recommendations from Facebook, Twitter, and the Boxee network.
And it goes both ways. If its on Boxee and you like it, you can recommend it to anyone -- TV shows, amateur youtube videos, movies, and more. With the Boxee Box, you're pretty much free to be that guy: recommend anything you've ever watched to everyone.
Less Mystery, More Machine. TV on Your Terms.
Never be limited by what you can watch and when. The Boxee Box makes it easy to choose the TV shows you want to watch, and most importantly, the ones you want to pay for. And with over 40,000 TV episodes from your favorite networks instantly available -- that's a lot to choose from. The Office, Family Guy, Entourage, True Blood, and much more.
If we can't find it for free, the Boxee Box will connect you with premium options who can, instantly. Get tons of free stuff, and never pay for the stuff you don't want to watch. Easy.
YouTube on Your Tube
If you can watch it on your computer's web browser you can watch it on the Boxee Box, only better. Our browser is similar to IE or Safari, but optimized to work with a QWERTY remote and your HDTV, seamlessly. University courses, panel discussions, TED Talks, Current TV, Stanford Online, FORA.tv, whatever -- the Boxee Box delivers all your favorite web-videos and web-only content, no matter how obscure they may be, straight to your TV set.
Get Into the Game
Why sit on the sidelines when the Boxee Box offers apps to ring the bell of even the most diehard sports fan? Start by taking a courtside seat with NBA.com. Follow your favorite teams. Watch video highlights and get live game updates. Or check out player stats, and sift through league standings. Big on baseball? If so, MLB.TV is a guaranteed homer. Now you can keep up with every club, and be the hero of the block by hosting all the out-of-market games, live and on demand. As for those who need a good slap shot to send them off, NHL GameCenter LIVE is all that and a bag of peanuts. Watch up to 40 live out-of-market games every week. Plus, get unlimited access to the NHL Vault, featuring condensed and full-length replays of over 100 classic NHL games. If you've been in the bull pen too long, let the Boxee Box put you right in the middle of the action.
Hundreds of Your Favorite Apps, Optimized for Your HDTV
Netflix, Pandora, MLB, NHL, Flickr, Facebook, Vimeo... With Boxee Box, your favorite Apps have been optimized to be enjoyed from the comfort of your couch. We're adding new apps everyday and already have hundreds to choose from. Sit back and put your feet up, because with our remote your favorite Apps are now at the tips of your fingers.
Give Your Wallet a Break
Think about it: your cable bill is probably about $80 or more per month. You get 500 channels -- some are great, most have a ton of commercials, and you only watch a handful of them. The Boxee Box model is simple: Buy the Boxee Box once, and get instant access to all the entertainment the web has to offer, forever. No rules. No contracts. No monthly fees. If we can't find it for free, the Boxee Box connects you with premium options that can, instantly. Man, we should've started doing this years ago.
Say Goodbye to Files and Folders. Say Hello to Boxee.
Not only does the Boxee Box give you access to thousands of TV shows and movies from all over the Internet, it takes your personal video, picture and music files from your hard drive and home network somewhere they've never been -- your HDTV. The Boxee Box works with virtually any file type (MP3, MP4, .jpeg, .avi, .mkv) and makes it easier to sort through than ever. If you can create it, the Boxee Box will play and organize it. Automatically download all relevant artwork and info and simplify all your digital stuff with big, colorful thumbnail photos in a TV-friendly interface you can access with a remote. You're friends will be impressed, or jealous. Probably jealous.
Turn Your TV Into a Jukebox You Can Share
Your MP3 files are organized and simplified and ready to share with your friends, anywhere on the Boxee network. And with our Pandora App, you can create unlimited radio stations by genre, artist, or song you can also share from the comfort of your couch.

Top customer reviews
youtube, netflix, vudu, and other integrated apps are perks. bought boxee to use as a remote access machine to playback a/v content from pc in office and it does a wonderful job. full 1080p support, true-hd, dts-ma hd, 7.1, etc.
rf-integrated remote a huge plus. wish remote was a bit smaller and had backlit keypad, but overall it does the job.
"free" television content offered from major networks hit and miss, but i didn't purchase the product for said feature.
netflix streaming nice. vudu 1080p dolby 5.1 rentals are wonderful (far better quality than hd broadcast pay-per-view).
built-in wireless adapter supports only wireless n 2.4ghz band. if wireless is an only option, might recommend high performance wireless bridge to connect to ethernet to take full advantage of available wi-fi bandwidth (for bandwidth heavy files / blu-ray rips / etc).
work pc connected via cat6 to apple airport extreme, boxee connected to airport extreme via cat6. boxee connected to denon avr-1912 via hdmi 1.4. wonderful little machine for $199. in comparison, boxee makes apple tv look like a mother's day gift.
a little know-how in mac or windows required for initial setup (to share directories for local playback). nothing terribly challenging.
did plenty of research on boxee forum, reseller sites, etc before purchase. keep in mind these are all developing technologies - time will iron out kinks, bugs, and issues. loving boxee and excited to see what future updates bring. haven't watched cable tv in weeks!
If your friends come over with a USB stick filled with images/video, the Boxee is hands down the most likely player to play it without problem. Why waste time converting your existing library into something your media player can read? It's much more time/cost effective to buy the player that plays EVERYTHING!
Do a Web search for "Bartsidee" and "Navi-X" 3rd party repositories. These are amazing installable apps that provide access to the few things that appear to be missing from the the Boxee Box at first glance.
Purchase a wireless keyboard/touchpad combo and you can turn the Boxee into a living room media PC for surfing the Web or playing Flash games. Note that high-speed Flash games play about 60% of their normal speed (e.g., Cannabalt) and that certain web apps will not work since Boxee's browser is Webkit-based (e.g., google apps).
Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 with Built-In Multi-Touch Touchpad (920-003070)
Rii Mini Wireless Keyboard (Built-in TouchPad/Laser Pointer) - Black
If you're an intermediate-level computer user, you will grow to love the extensibility of the Boxee Box. This is not a product that makes you feel like you're being corralled into a corporate media ecosystem. On the other hand, if you're a novice computer user, with no local library of 'downloaded video content' you might be better served purchasing a player with a simpler interface (e.g., a few buttons on the 'home menu' that directly send you to Hulu, Netflix, Amazon VOD, etc).
And finally note that you'll need a HDMI connector on your TV or display. A cheapo HDMI to VGA or HDMI to DVI converter WILL NOT WORK! Boxee needs HDMI to HDMI.
