The new Movie Library features a selection of thousands of films from Boxee's four launch partners: EZTakes, Indie Movies Online, Openfilm and MUBI. Kippen notes that, while some movies are available for a small fee, most of them are supported by ads and viewable for free. Additional movies and services will reportedly be added "soon".
