"Boxee has been an awesome service to use if you want to get easy access to full length TV shows from networks across the web. Along with having a great interface, Boxee even has their own set top box and payment system. All that said, access to TV shows all that Boxee really offered...until now. This week, Boxee is adding a new feature to their platform called Movie Library."
Boxee now offers movies from EZTakes, Indie Movies Online, MUBI* and Openfilm. They plan to add new partners and make ongoing tweaks/improvements to the service in the near future. Interesting to see more and more competition to the 'traditional' content providers like cable and satellite. The Boxee Box by D-Link is pretty impressive - anyone have any comparisons with Apple TV? I especially like the remote control with the QWERTY keyboard on the back side!
