I am looking into getting a streaming device for my TV this fall, i want to be able to connect a gaming console, an external HD and have Spotify and Netflix compatibility. Most of the official reviews of the BoxeeBox are not good but they are also relatively old and as i understand it the software in the product has been enhanced and improved significantly over the past few years. Does anyone have any more recent experiences with the new Boxee when in comparison to other streaming devices?
Using an ethernet connection is not an option, which basically makes it a brick (given it's amorphous shape, a particularly useless brick). Can anyone help?
I put up a detailed review here: http://mattapps.com/2010/11/14/boxee-box-in-depth-...
I'm in Canada so a lot of sites are blocked but I'm happy to report they have linked to the Canadian versions of TV sites so I can watch things (CBC, CTV, Global). I hope they will be adding more - like Space.
What do you think? Post your impressions! (We just got one in the office today, though I haven't had a chance to play with it yet).
content with it. I'm running Boxee on my laptop (1.83 ghz C2D, 2gb ram) and it had been pretty poor, so I'm kinda worried how this experience would be using it on a Boxee box which will probably will be less powerful than my laptop. Any thoughts?
I like the Boxee software, but with the new Apple TV priced at $99 and Google prepping their entrance into the TV space, do you think the Boxee Box can compete?
Boxee Box and Google TV's roll out. Now with the Boxee Box being pushed back into November does it have any chance of success at all? It's pretty clear that Google, with all of it different partnerships, plans on pushing this product pretty hard this holiday shopping season. I'm afraid the Boxee Box is going to be swept away by the flood of Google TV this fall. Thoughts?
As we mentioned at the event, we'll have an announcement about the availability of the Boxee Box in the next 3 weeks. We'll make sure the gdgt guys get the news : )
If you're going to the Chicago event (or even if you're not)... What are you stoked to see from this group? Who are you psyched to meet with? What do you want to ask them? I'll follow up w/ a 2nd group soon.
