Cloud-based DVR system offered ahead of November release

Boxee will start the promotion of its upcoming Boxee TV set-top box by giving away free units. A number of customers that have registered on the Boxee website and completed a survey have been e-mailed, offering the device at no charge before its expected release date of mid to late November.

The form has been up since the system was initially unveilled, according to The Verge. Initial reports suggest that residents of Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, DC. stand a chance at receiving one at no charge, though it isn't clear if it will be for people that have previously signed up on the website, or if new registrants will be eligible.

The Boxee TV allows users to watch live TV content from ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and others in HD, and also acts as a DVR and a Smart TV device. Unencrypted basic cable lines and antennas can be hooked up to the dual tuners, and show recordings can be hosted to the cloud-based "No Limits DVR" storage at a cost of $15 per month.

Aside from receiving one from the company for free, the Boxee TV system is expected to cost $100.
