Netflix Streaming Comes to Boxee



Boxee today announced some new improvments to it’s media center application.  The biggest news is that it now has Netflix streaming.  The bad news about that is that they don’t have it working on AppleTV, yet.  I’m sure they will be hard at work trying to get it on there.  Some other features/improvements listed below.

* a new Hulu – looks more like hulu.com, enables you to login (so you can get your Hulu Queue), works faster, and playback should be greatly improved on Apple TV
* a new YouTube – new look, as well as higher quality video playback. some of these YouTube clips look pretty good on your 46” LCD
* a new CNN, Flickr, Picasa and Apple Movie Trailers – we’ve re-written all of these plug-ins to work faster and look better
* Boston Globe’s The Big Picture – it’s a great photo-blog, which we really like, and thought could be pretty cool in a 10-foot experience. if you’ll like it we could bring much more of these type of services (let us know!)
* integration with MTV Music – when you click on an album you’ll see a new option to let you watch music videos of the artist. check it out. MTV said they can give us higher quality videos, and we have a few more ideas for providing a great music video experience on boxee
* theWB – on our quest to bring more TV content to boxee theWB is the latest addition. it means shows like Buffy, Babylon5, Firefly, One Tree Hill and The O.C. are now available on boxee
