Holy! Boxee Releases Hulu Streaming and More

Holy Hulu!  Boxee beats the big-time HTPC software companies to the punch with Hulu, CBS, Comedy Central, and MySpaceTV streaming by integrating those companies streaming players into Boxee.  This alone should give Vista Media Center, SageTV and BeyondTV pause as web-based video/television/move content is becoming more-and-more important to the end user.
The New, alpha version of Boxee includes:
  • Streaming TV shows, movies and clips from Hulu, CBS, Comedy Central and MySpaceTV (we integrated their players into boxee)
  • Major changes to the UI
  • Web interface to adding RSS feeds
  • Improved performance
Current Alpha version Supports Linux, AppleTV and Mac with a Windows version scheduled for sometime this Fall.
