There are many different options when it comes to viewing the vast volume of Netflix movies on your television, one of the very best ones is a device that goes by the name of Boxee.
There is no need to hook this up to your PC or laptop as it handles the streaming of your programs for you, and can show the output on pretty much any television; however if you have the luxury of a HD TV then you can take advantage of Boxee’s 1080p HD signals.
If you do want to hook up your existing media collection from the PC or Laptop then you will be delighted to know that Boxee can stream them to your television too.
So once you get your new Boxee set up it is just a question of deciding which of the many Netflix movies that you want to watch first, finding one couldn’t be easier with the excellent full QWERTY remote control. The main side has just a few buttons to allow easy operation; however flip it over to gain full access to the keyboard element.
If it’s on the internet then Boxee will be able to play it
The general rule of thumb for Boxee is that if it is out on the internet then you will be able to view it, and if you have a file on your PC’s hard disk that can be played then again you should be able to view it on your television.
Boxee has been around for a number of years now, in fact 2008 saw the introduction of the first Boxee unit; from there the company have continued to work hard to ensure that their customers get the benefit of being at the fore front of streaming technology. Developments including the Boxee Box by D-Link which is able to put out a true 1080p signal, more than twice the resolution of Apple TV’s version.
Such is the way that the Boxee has been received, it caused Rory Cellan-Jones of the BBC to say that Boxee have been able to create something that very few other manufacturers have been able to do, in making Apple’s rival product seem distinctly average. High praise indeed for this wonderfully styled, hi technology streaming player.
Regular updates are provided in over the air (OTA) updates, so users can be safe in the knowledge that their Boxee will always have the latest advancements.
