Boxee Live TV Coming In January
The idea is that although the programming you can get from the Internet is increasingly comprehensive and diverse, most people still watch a lot of shows broadcast on the big networks, which is a barrier to “cord-cutting”, or cancelling your cable or satellite subscription.
Can you get those channels with your existing antenna? Yes. But with Boxee Live TV, you can get them on your Boxee Box; in other words, Boxee Live TV allows yo to keep all your programming in one place. It’s more of a convenience than anything, but it’s a welcome one.
Note that there will be no DVR capabilities (at least not yet), and Boxee Live TV will only work on the Boxee Box--so there’s no PC or Mac support.
Boxee Live TV will be available in January, but you can pre-order yours on the Boxee website now for $49.
