Posted by at 4:01 pm on October 16, 2012

Boxee, which traditionally made products that focused on streaming multimedia content from local storage and the web, has now introduced the aptly named Boxee TV. It will let users watch live TV content from ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and other channels in high definition. It also doubles as a DVR and bring Internet Apps to a connected HDTV.

Users can hook up an antenna or unencrypted basic cable lines to the Boxee TV. Dual tuners allow watching one show and recording another simultaneously. The recordings go up to a cloud-based storage server however, which Boxee calls No Limits DVR. Apart from never running out of space, Boxee says, another advantage of this is that users can access their recordings from notebooks, tablets, desktops, and their TV through the Boxee TV. In 2012, No Limits DVR will only be available in eight markets, including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia and DC, with more coming in 2013. The service requires a $15 monthly fee.

Preloaded apps include Netflix, Vudu, YouTube, Vimeo, and Pandora, among others, so web-connected users have plenty of entertainment options. Boxee promises to add more apps and services as time goes on as well.

The Boxee TV hardware is due to ship sometime in November, priced at $100.
