Bloomberg has the news
that, starting tomorrow, Walmart will be offering D-Link's new $99 Boxee TV exclusively. There's a little bit of ambiguity in that word, "exclusively." Does it mean that Boxee TV will only be available at Walmart, or that Walmart will sell Boxee TV only instead of the alternatives?
My guess, based on the evidence, is that, at the very least, Boxee's distribution will be through Walmart alone, at least for a while, because as of right now, both Roku and Apple TV are available for store delivery through Walmart.com.
