The promised Boxee Netflix app - which the streaming media company had previously said would be released by the end of January - is once again delayed. According to the Boxee blog, the Netflix app works but has "not yet satisfied Netflix’s security requirements."

Boxee doesn't have a timeline for the release, but according to marketing lead Andrew Kippen the company is meeting with Netflix on Wednesday and hopes to have "a better idea" at the end of this week about what's happening. The issue appears to center around DRM, and how secure Netflix believes its feeds are when they reach the Linux-based Boxee Box.
