Boxee: Open Source Connected TV

Filed under
Software

One of the clear trends at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show is the proliferation of ways to get Internet-based content onto your TV. But I’ve seen only one system that’s free (as in both speech and beer) and doesn’t seem to restrict where you get content: Boxee.

The current version of Boxee runs on Intel-based Macs, Apple TV and Linux machines (it works particularly easily on Ubuntu distributions). A Windows version should be ready soon, according to a Boxee spokesman. Connect any of those boxes to your TV and you’ve got a pretty powerful entertainment aggregator.
