The Boxee Box left CES 2010 with 4 awards safely in tow, including “Best of CES”. Mike McDonald dropped by the Boxee Box booth to check out the device.
At it’s core, The Box is a media player designed to utilize the convenience of users’ televisions. The device connects wirelessly or wired to a network, and organizes all the media found. Which in turn, is available for viewing on a variety of screens and monitors. Along with physical media, the device scans certain places on the internet for publicly streamed shows, and news feeds, bringing them all directly to a television set.
The Box comes with a standard remote control, which can also double as a QWERTY keyboard allowing for optimal web browsing.
The Boxee Box is schedule for a May release, and will retail for around $200.
