Viewsonic is Creating a Boxee Based TV

Posted Fri Jan 14, 2011 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Google's not the only one rolling out specially branded TVs.

The Boxee Box has been a success according to manufacturer D-Link. They've been having a bit of trouble keeping them in stock, and that's the kind of problem you want to have.

The D-Link set-top is currently the only home theater device short of an HTPC that will get Boxee on your TV, but that won't last long. The folks at Viewsonic are creating their own Boxee device, but it's not a set-top - it's a TV.

Viewsonic showed off a 46 inch television with an Atom CE4100 processor inside, ready to provide you with the full Boxee experience. It's the first TV to pack Boxee and only the second product announced made by someone other than D-Link.

There's no word yet on pricing or availability, but you can be sure we'll be keeping an eye on this one.
