New Boxee Box Firmware Adds Vudu Support, Where’s Netflix?
There’s a new firmware revision available for Boxee Box owners that
finally adds Vudu support, which Boxee has been promising since late
“Vudu on the Boxee Box means: access to the largest selection of HD
movies on-demand, new releases (same day as DVD), thousands of movies
available for rental at $2 for 2 nights (in standard definition). We are
psyched,” Boxee’s Avner Ronen wrote in a blog post.
To celebrate the occasion, Vudu is offering every new user who signs
up on the Boxee Box a $5.99 credit towards a first rental or purchase.
If you own a Boxee Box, you should have received the update by now, but
if not you can force the issue by heading to Settings > System >
The latest firmware release also adds a boatload of enhancements and
bug fixes, but still no Netflix. Not to worry, Boxee says it’s “still on
track for a release later this month.”
