D-Link and Boxee have announced that the Boxee Box will ship in November. The product was shown off a CES back in January and was due to be released about now. It should be interesting to see how the dedicated box market develops with Google TV and Media Center in Windows Embedded due out, personally I am more interested in a Embedded version of Media Center but then I am biased!

Our vision is to make the Boxee experience on a set top box as good as (and where we can, better than) the one you already know on a PC. The goal is to play HD videos from the web or a local network in 1080p and use hardware acceleration whenever possible. And to provide a TV browser experience that can handle almost everything you throw at it, including Flash 10.1. Not to mention making all this happen for an affordable price and on a quiet device that will not feel obsolete 12 months after you buy it.

We are looking forward to the  November launch with D-Link and believe it will deliver a user experience that sets the standard for accessing stuff from the Internet and from your home network on your TV.
