Boxee Readying Live TV
Boxee announced Wednesday that it will release an add-on early next year that will add live TV to the box. The new Live TV stick, available now for preorder at $49, makes live, HD TV from ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox available for Boxee users.
With the slogan "Boxee Live TV is coming, Time to cut the cord," the company is clearly pitching the product as a cable TV alternative. The product will arrive in January.
"There is a better way for you to get TV and we think Boxee with Live TV can deliver that promise," Boxee's Avner Ronen said in a post on the Boxee blog. "We want Boxee to be your alternative to Cable TV."
