The date is set for the release of the Boxee Beta.
On December 7th at 7pm we are going to have an unveiling event at the
Music Hall of Williamsburg. If you're in NYC it would be great if you
could attend (RSVP at bit.ly/boxeebetanyc
In case you can't make it to the event you'll be able to tune in to a live stream (provided by LiveStream.com) at blog.boxee.tv
or directly on Boxee (we've worked with Cliqset to overlay messaging onto the stream so you'll be able to chat about Boxee
while you're watching Boxee on Boxee. woah.) We'll make a recommendation for this App on the day of the event.
At the event we will demo the new Beta, launch new applications and start
a 4-week early-access for users to test the Beta before we release it
to the public at CES on Jan 7th.
Sign up for early Beta access here: bit.ly/boxeebetaea
The Boxee Beta will look, feel and behave differently
from the Alpha. It takes into account many of the requests and feedback
we received from users over the past year.
The Beta will feature:
- a completely re-designed look and feel
- improved navigation across the platform to quickly and easily access entertainment
- search for TV Shows and Movies on the Internet & on local hard drives / networks
- queuing functionality to let you save things for later from the web
- shortcuts for your favorite apps, movies, shows, etc.
- and the proverbial "more"
In the meantime, we hope you can join us for the Beta release event,
either in person or virtually on Dec. 7th.
