Boxee TV is now in Walmart Retail Stores
Tags: Boxee TV, Walmart (all tags)
The unique DVR/streamer combination is now available to the masses at $99.
Boxee TV isn't what hardcore digital media fans were hoping for in the next iteration of Boxee products, but it's definitely an interesting new gadget. It functions as a DVR, but without any local storage. Instead of sitting on a hard drive, your content goes online, ready to be viewed from wherever you are.
It's a bit of a strange concept, even for those who are already on board with the whole digital distribution thing, and the idea of being limited to certain channels is a bit of a blow. Still, this is where Boxee and Walmart are putting their bets this holiday season. The mega-chain will be the exclusive carrier of the Boxee TV through the season, and will provide signage and information on the device inside of stores.
