Boxee Box By D-Link Review

D-Link Boxee Box Review

The origins of the Boxee date back a number of years with roots in the Xbox Media Center software and the core product is a media centre application with 10foot GUI and cross platform compatibility. Several chunks of investment have taken Boxee Inc to their current level of development and feedback so far has been positive, with Boxee receiving a number of awards including CEA iStage Winner and CNet Editor’s Pick @ CES.

Boxee is marketed as "a new way to think about TV" and is essentially an interface that combines with hardware to create a fully functional, standalone media player/streamer. Today we will be reviewing the Boxee Box (DSM-380) by D-Link which is a set-top box developed in co-operation with D-Link.

With a Boxee Box connected to a TV we are able to watch any TV show from the Internet, and films from services like Netflix, VUDU, and MUBI. Boxee automatically delivers video recommendations from our friends on Facebook and Twitter to the TV and enables us share with them from the click of the remote. As well teaming up with hardware manufacturers Boxee INC. also allows us to download the Boxee software for free. Boxee runs on Mac OS X (Tiger 10.4, Leopard 10.5, and Snow Leopard 10.6), Linux Ubuntu (9.04 Jaunty Jackalope, 9.10 Karmic Koala) and Windows (XP, Vista, 7).
