After a long gestation, the Boxee Box set-top streaming device has finally launched. The $199 box, which seems not to be designed to fit nicely into your entertainment center, runs on the same platform as Google TV and can access a variety of online sources such as YouTube, Vimeo and VUDU.
Boxee claims that Netflix support will be available before the end of the year, and Hulu Plus will be coming to the device as well.
At 200 bucks, the Boxee will cost you more than either an Apple TV or a Roku box. How well do you think this “sinking cube” shaped device will fare in today’s hyper-competitive streaming marketplace?
