Boxee, maker of free “media center software” (software that lets you hook up your computer to your TV and navigate movies, TV shows, music and other media content), has been gaining in popularity. But potential customers have one big request for the company: Give us a dedicated Boxee box, rather than requiring us to run your software on our laptops.
Today, in sync with co-founder Avner Ronen’s appearance as a speaker at the NewTeeVee conference in San Francisco, the company announced on its blog that “a Boxee box is coming.” No further details were released, except a promise to unveil the product in New York on December 7th.
A Boxee box will open up a much larger potential audience to Boxee, as well as raising the potential per-customer profit. Ronen put it as, “The Internet is finally coming to the TV.”
