Back at CES I saw Boxee for the iPad and today the app and the Boxee Media Manager have been released. Boxee for the iPad enables you to watch videos from the web and your computer on the iPad and the Media Manager app enables you to send videos to the iPad (Mac or PC).
Both apps are free, the iPad app is available in the app store (however its not showing up if you search the UK at store at the moment but the direct link works). The Mac and PC version are available from Boxee.tv

Boxee for iPad
There’s so much to watch on the web these days. Whether it’s videos you find on blogs, your friends recommend, or you discover during 4 hour tantric Internet surfing sessions, keeping track of it all is a hassle.
Boxee for iPad gives you one place to discover, watch, and share video from the web and your computer. We built the app to be useful for any iPad user, even those who have never heard of Boxee before, but it has the added benefit for current Boxee Box users that you can send video to your flat screen throught it (we’ll include this for Mac/PC users in the fall update).
There’s 5 major functions: Friends, Watch Later, Featured, PC to iPad, iPad to TV
Friends – Never miss a hilarious or inspiring new video from your friends again.
Boxee automatically delivers new videos your friends share on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr directly to your iPad.
Return the favor and share your favorites with two taps.
Watch Later – Each day, we’re bombarded by video from everywhere. Use the freshly re-designed bookmarklet to, umm… bookmark videos from the Internet and have them waiting for you on your iPad (and anywhere else you’ve got Boxee). Now you’ve got one place to queue YouTube videos, TED talks, FunnyOrDie videos, a TV Show you missed, or anything else you don’t have time to watch right away. It’s an easy way to create a video playlist for the commute, the bed, the couch or the bathroom (this is mainly for Idan, whose iPad we don’t touch).
Get started by dragging ✚ Boxee to your Bookmark Bar.
Click it when you see a video you want to come back to later. Try it on this page.
Featured – Find stunning, hilarious, creative, and insightful videos shared from Boxee’s editorial staff. We’ll keep you up to date with the best stuff on the net. (PS – got recommendations for us? share them on our Facebook page and we might feature them to nearly 2Million other Boxee users!)
PC to iPad, Easily – No need to waste hours converting and syncing videos to your iPad. Boxee streams videos from your PC/Mac to your iPad over WiFi. You pick the video (in almost any format) and we make it play on your iPad. It’s all possible through the new Boxee Media Manager, a lightweight app for your PC/Mac that works magic on video files. Check out the screenshot below for what you can expect (buffalo not included in all apps).
Send to TV – Watching video on your iPad and want it on the big screen? Send videos straight to your TV via a Boxee Box so everyone in your living room can enjoy. Now you can go back to playing Avadon or Angry Birds on the iPad while you watch : )
