Boxee beta to be unveiled on December 7th

updated 01:15 pm EST, Fri November 6, 2009

Should differ dramatically from current alpha

The first public beta of Boxee will be shown on December 7th, according to its developer. The app is primarily used to stream movies and TV shows to an HDTV, including remote content from sources such as Hulu and Netflix. Music and photos can also be streamed; versions of the app have been produced for the Mac, Windows and the Apple TV.

Long in development, the beta version of Boxee is described as a radical departure from the latest alpha. The software has been given an entirely new user interface, with improved navigation including shortcuts. Users can now also run searches in the movie and TV show categories, and create a custom queue, eliminating the need to return to menus between clips. Public availability of the beta is scheduled for January 7th.

    really?

    OK, maybe I'm just out of it, but why would you need this? I'll give it a shot, but I really can't see them improving on Plex all that much.

    Haven't used Plex, but for one thing, Boxee installs on AppleTV.
