Samsung To Shut Down Boxee Cloud DVR Service This Month, TVs Could Get A Boxee Interface
Samsung snapped up Boxee for around $30 million, but those hoping that their Boxee Cloud DVR service would continue humming along will be in for an unfortunate surprise. That service, which was made available to select users in beta form, will shut down on July 10th. This means that those users won't have access to their existing recordings after 7/10.
Boxee apologies for the trouble, but there's no turning back. Hopefully, we'll see a similar approach added into Samsung wares in the near future. The Boxee interface could bring a much needed shot in the arm for Samsung's Smart TV experience, enhancing the complete solution.
