Boxee have announced that their promised paid-content upgrade will be arriving in July or August 2010, now that they’ve settled on payment partner Vindicia. Interestingly, while the system will debut on Boxee’s current TV platform, the company highlights Vindicia’s cross-platform compatibility and say they will “eventually” expand to mobile platforms like the iPhone, Android and iPad.
As for the types of payment supported, Boxee’s content providers will be able to choose from subscription or pay-per-view models, and it will be up to them which media is offered free and which carries a charge. Boxee suggests that could include archive content or “DVD extras” style background media. Credit card, gift card and Paypal payments will be supported.
