D-Link Boxee Box coming in November Boxee has announced that the D-Link Boxee Box will hit North America in November, finally putting a set timetable down on the much-anticipated set-top box.
Initially, the company had hoped to release the box by June, but production delays set shipments back.

The goal of the Boxee Box is to give users a way to play 1080p HD videos from the Web or their local network while using hardware acceleration.

Additionally, the box will "provide a TV browser experience that can handle almost everything you throw at it, including Flash 10.1."

Boxee also wants the box to be affordable and "not feel obsolete 12 months after you buy it."

Hell, I just like the fact that you can use HDMI on this. May not be a wow factor to some but it is to me, considering that my laptop only has VGA port on it. Bummer.

I wonder how long it'll take to be hacked to run XBMC?

@gehx it will have the ability to run XBMC by default. They are paying homage to there roots (Boxee is a downstream port of XBMC :))

I'm really looking forward to this box. The software is awesome and this box will be rad as. Although november is fricken ages away!

Yeah but the S-Video cable is video only, no sound or HD.
