Boxee Partners with Sonic Solutions

Posted Mon Jun 21, 2010 at 11:30 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The new arrangement will create a whole new line of content for Boxee users.

Sonic Solutions is the company behind Best Buy's CinemaNow service, Blockbuster's video on demand service, and a few others too. It's a pretty big name in the digital delivery world.

And that's why Boxee has licensed the RoxioNow entertainment platform. The addition of the Roxio service is huge, since it will allow users of both the Boxee Box and the standalone Boxee software to access all new content that includes HD movies with 5.1 surround sound.

If that's not cool enough, the RoxioNow service is friendly with a lot of different devices, like PCs, DVRs and mobile devices. If you rent a movie in one place, you can watch it wherever you like. Not a bad setup.

Boxee is in the midst of integrating RoxioNowand according to the official Boxee blog, we'll see everything Roxio up and running by the time the Boxee Box ships this November.
