As if to give us a lovely Valentine’s Day present, Boxee has gifted us with news that they now support Netflix on their set-up box, the Boxee Box. Owners can start streaming movies and TV shows from Netflix once they update the software. The service is available now to customers in the US and Canada.
Adding Netflix capability is big with its massive library of content and more than 20 million members. With VUDU previously available and now Netflix, Boxee Box owners won’t need to leave their couches very often.
The Box will update the software automatically within the next 24 hours, or owners can manually update the device themselves. Netflix on the Box will be different from the PC/Mac versions of Boxee as it has the brand new Netflix UI. There are also more discovery options such as unique Netflix recommendations. HD movies are also available.
