Here in Washington, D.C., I plugged my new dongle (complete with HD antenna) into the BoxeeBox and after a simple set up process (and a long wait for the channel search) CBS popped onto my screen in beautiful HD, for free!
(To find out what the antenna will pick up, you can use the FCC's website.)
Aside from live television, the BoxeeBox is an Internet streaming media center. It can access YouTube, Pandora, and hundreds of other apps as well as shows like How I Met Your Mother, The Daily Show, The Bachelorette, House Hunters International for free. On top of that, the box can also access paid apps like Spotify, Grooveshark, Netflix, Vudu, HBOGo, MLB.tv and NHL Network. Learn more at Boxee.tv.
If you live in an apartment that provides basic cable, as I do, you can still run it through your BoxeeBox + LiveTV and quickly switch between the baseball game, Netflix, and the live programming of favorite late night host.
In the future, Boxee may add the ability to record shows (like a DVR). If they pump in that functionality, then it will probably be the perfect home theater accessory. Until then, I'm off to see if they've brought Community back yet.
The BoxeeBox is available on Amazon in the United States and other retailers internationally. The LiveTV add-on is currently only available through their website Boxee.tv/live.
