The Boxee Box is Shipping – More Features Added

Posted Fri Nov 12, 2010 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Netflix, Hulu Plus and more have been added to the Boxee Box, which is now shipping at a price of $199.

Boxee released a ton of information at their Boxee Box launch party last night, including new features, updated software and even a remote with a dedicated Netflix button.

Among the features that have been lacking in previous Boxee Box reveals, Netflix is the biggest. The folks at Boxee have heard the complaints and will have Netflix running on the box by the end of the year. Hulu Plus is coming too, though it's unclear whether you'll be able to get the traditional Hulu experience through the Box.

Of course, the Boxee Box still does everything they said it would initially. It plays back just about every video file around, handles streaming content like a champ and features new apps like Vice, Vevo and even a weather app.

The Boxxee Box is available now on Amazon for $199.
