Popbox Hardware Weeks Away – Still No Word on Netflix

The official Popbox blog isn't doing a lot to raise confidence either.

People have gotten pretty excited about the Popbox. It's up there with the Boxee Box as far as hotly anticipated media streamers go. But when the Netflix logo started disappearing from Popbox press material, it raised some questions. Questions that don't yet have answers.

The official statement on the Popbox blog doesn't do a lot to raise confidence. "Rest assured that we will, in advance, post a complete list of all App partners that will be available on the PopBox before Amazon.com ships to customers who have pre-ordered."

The reason behind the lack of information, according to Syabas, the makers of Popbox, isn't choice, but legality. "Because of legal considerations we cannot currently post that information today but we are actively engaged with multiple partners as we speak to have their services available shortly on the PopBox."
