Noted: Web TV-ish service Boxee has a deal with Fountain Valley’s D-Link Systems to release the first piece of hardware with Boxee’s online video service. That won’t be out until next quarter. Now, NewTeeVee reports that Boxee isn’t limiting itself to D-Link’s hardware. Could there be a Boxee Blu-ray player in the works?
Boxee, a free web service allowing users to watch TV shows on the Web while socializing with online friends, told the news site that it wants another hardware device for consumers by the end of the year.
Interestingly, NewTeeVee writer Janko Roettgers also mentions the Hulu dilemma. Hulu owners like NBC don’t want the free Web TV shows to be accessed by the Boxee Box or other similar devices. Boxee said it plans to ask for a licensed application. Read the story: Next Up For Boxee: A Blu-ray Player?
