Up and coming streaming box company Boxee isn't content sitting next to your TV. Instead, it's firing up an initiative to get inside your TV by offering an embeddable option to manufacturers.


Boxee's origins were humble: once a free-to-download media centre app for computers and Apple TVs, the software evolved into a full-blown media streaming box for home theatres, and a powerful one at that (if ultimately flawed). But it was still sequestered from the main TV experience. With Boxee TV, we get one step closer to seamlessly merging the media streaming, channel surfing, and TV hoarding experiences.


A new update just brought Vudu's collection of HD streaming movies - some 4000 of them in all - to Boxee Boxes. More movies! Never a bad thing. These ones arrive in 1080p with Dolby Digital surround sound, and they'll cost Boxee owners $US2 a pop for two-night rentals. The Boxee team says they're still on track for an update that'll brings Netflix to the set-top box later this month, too. When it rains it pours.
