Iomega TV with Boxee released in the UK tomorrow but not heading to the US yet.

Way back in January at CES Boxee announced that Iomega where going to be bringing out a Boxee box and finally tomorrow its going to be available on Amazon.  There are two version available, there is the £219 Iomega TV without storage which is essentially the same as the D-Link box and there is the £299.99 box with 2TB of storage.  I am not sure if the market needs another box but the addition of local storage is an advantage over the D-Link box.  Not so good news for US readers, according to gigaom.com the Iomega are not planning to launch the box in the US:

“Currently, there are no plans to launch Iomega TV with Boxee in North America,” Iomega’s Senior Director of Worldwide Communications and Public Relations, Chris Romoser
