Boxee Gets Baseball
Media center software provider Boxee announced Tuesday that it has reached a deal with Major League Baseball to make its game broadcasts available to Boxee users. The announcement coincides with the first release of Boxee's software for Windows.
The baseball deal will work for customers who subscribe to the MLB.tv online service, which allows streaming of live games to users' computers. The Boxee deal will bring the broadcasts to users' TVs.
"MLB.TV Premium on boxee means you can now watch thousands of baseball games, live and on-demand in HD (where available)," Boxee's CEO, Avner Ronen, wrote on the company's official blog. "On top of that, MLB.TV Premium offers DVR functionality to pause and rewind a live game. MLB.com represents a big step for boxee as we hope this is the first of many different live sports offerings we can bring to you."
