Netflix Finally Comes to the Boxee Box

Posted Wed Feb 16, 2011 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Both US and Canadian customers will have access to the service.

Netflix streaming today is as common as remote controls. If you don't have a device that can stream Netflix then you're in the minority. TVs, Blu-ray players, videogame systems and even phones can access the service and bring streaming content to you.

There's something to be said about having it all on one box though, or to be more specific, one Box. The Boxee Box has been hailed as an impressive device for those that get a majority of their entertainment from the internet, but until now it's lacked Netflix.

"Netflix on the Box is different from the version you see on the PC/Mac versions of Boxee," writes Boxee founder Avner Ronen. "It has the brand new Netflix UI which they constantly update, test and improve."

If you own a Boxee Box, you can download the update now, or wait 24 hours for the automatic update to hit your Box.
