Boxee working on a set top box

I like Boxee as a way of watching internet content and it looks like the platform is going from strength to strength. Today they have announced they are working with a hardware partner on a Boxee set top box. For a long time the Media Center community have wondered if a dedicated Media Center box would be a good idea and Boxee’s idea looks like a good one but for me I love the flexibility of a PC running Boxee and Media Center

I am very happy to announce we have signed our first partnership with a CE company. At this point we can not say more about the partner or the specs of the device, but we can tell you we are working closely with them to make sure we deliver a great Boxee experience on it.

We will show mockups of the box and share more details at our upcoming Boxee Beta Unveiling event in Brooklyn, NY on Dec 7th. RSVP here.

Over the next few years there will be a great change in the way we consume entertainment on our TV. The Internet is (finally) coming to the TV and with it will come a whole new world of content, applications and innovations.
