This morning Boxee unveiled their followup to the Boxee Box: Boxee TV. It’s $99 and comes with an antenna built in, allowing you to watch live, over-the-air broadcasts.
But the real secret sauce is their “No Limits DVR,” a $14.99/month service that they describe like so:
Instead of storing your recording on a local hard-drive, Boxee TV uploads your recordings to the cloud. It means there are no limits to how much you can record and no limits to where you watch - on your laptop, tablet and, of course, your TV.
Upon launch in November, No Limits DVR will be available in eight markets and rolling out to more in 2013. We’ll see about that…this is the same company that, back in 2010, promised to add Hulu Plus to the Boxee Box in similar “sometime next year” fashion, a promise that remains unfulfilled.
But the price is right to compete.
