Netflix Available on Boxee Box at Long Last

first_imgTo show its love on this special Valentine’s Day, Boxee Box announced it will now allow Netflix streaming in the US and Canada. Boxee dealt with some delays — Netflix was supposed to be available to the Boxee Box by the end of 2010, and then it was supposed to be available in January –, but Boxee Box owners can finally breath a sigh of relief.In an e-mail from Boxee, the company said it was bummed it couldn’t get it out sooner, but that it’s “happy to have the Netflix app just in time for Valentine’s Day so our users can have a date night with their Boxee Box (and hopefully a significant other).”The user interface of the new Netflix app is the same as the one recently released for Google TV and Sony’s PlayStation 3. It allows users to search and browse the entire catalog. Automatic firmware updates will roll-out later this week, but owners can force the download now by updating the firmware manually. [Update: The Netflix service will cost $7.99 a month.]last_img
