This past Wednesday, Boxee announced its latest Boxee Box firmware upgrade which also activated the highly anticipated (and also highly delayed) Vudu content partnership.
Today I did the firmware upgrade on my Boxee Box and checked out the Vudu app. Here’s a quick video demo of how it works:
- Vudu’s large selection of 1080p movies turbo charges one's home theater
- The highly cross-linked user experience facilitates content discovery
- The app’s GUI on the Boxee Box is well organized and easy to navigate
This coming Friday (January 28), I’ll be interviewing Boxee’s Andrew Kippen live at Hill Holliday’s TVnext summit. I’ll be asking him more about the Boxee + Vudu partnership and what’s the holdup with Netflix. Be sure to tune in via Ustream. The event kicks off at 9:30am (EST) and the Boxee interview will be around 1:30pm.
