Boxee adds ABC to TV
The creators of the Boxee media streaming software have expanded network coverage to include ABC, according to an announcement. The addition is designed to coincide with the season premiere of Lost, and brings with it episodes from a number of other ABC shows such as Scrubs, Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy. Other studios on Boxee include CBS, NBC and Fox, the latter two coming by way of Hulu.
Boxee is currently available in a preview version for Apple TVs, Ubuntu Linux, and Mac OS X 10.4 or later; a Windows version is due sometime in the future. The app's developers recently revealed they are contemplating the prospect of a dedicated set-top box, or integration with existing third-party hardware such as game consoles.
