Netflix for the Boxee Box Delayed Again

Posted Wed Feb 2, 2011 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Boxee cites security requirements as the big holdup.

People who own the Boxee Box - at least the vocal ones - want Netflix bad. There's no reason they shouldn't expect to have it since Netflix has become a standard feature on Blu-ray players, TVs, game systems, and even phones.

The folks at Boxee agree. "There’s not a day that goes by without dozens of emails, comments, tweets, asking about Netflix. We all want it," writes Andrew Klippen on the official Boxee Blog. The problem, he says, is that Boxee has not yet satisfied the Netflix security requirements.

"The Netflix app is up and running on Boxee," he writes, adding "we watched the intro to Full Metal Jacket earlier today." It's just a matter of getting the security just right. Klippen says Netflix on the Boxee Box is close, it's just not here yet.
