Avner Ronen through Boxee blog announced:We launched our public alpha for Mac / Linux in January at CES. During the program we found several equipment manufacturers interested in embedding Boxee on existing equipment or the construction of a special unit to Boxee.
I am very pleased to announce that we signed our first partnership with an enterprise EC. At this point we can not say more about the couple or the device specifications, but we can say that we are working closely with them to ensure we offer an experience of great Boxee on it.
We will show the prototype of the box and share more details at our next event Boxee Beta archiving in Brooklyn, NY, 7 December. RSVP here.
Over the next few years will see a big change in how we consume entertainment on our television. The Internet is (finally) comes to TV, and with it comes a new world of content, applications and innovations.
We are building a platform Boxee :
- easier for users to consume and to find content - whatever the source
- To provide content owners, aggregators and developers of tools to create unique experiences with different business models
- CE enables companies to improve their equipment
This will be the first rider Boxee connected device, but the idea is to give consumers a way to get boxing in their living rooms, whether it is in a connected television, game console, set-top box, BluRay player, computer, etc.
Our goal is to be on every device plugged into the room.
