Netflix streaming media finally arrives on Boxee Box


Boxee announced today that Netflix streaming media is finally available to owners of the company's Boxee Box. In order to access Netflix streaming media, users will need to either wait for the automatic update to take effect within the next 24 hours or manually update their set-top boxes. "Netflix support was the most common request we had on our blog comments, forum posts, tweets, etc.," Boxee CEO Avner Ronen said in a blog post accompanying the announcement. "We heard you loud and clear. We were bummed that we could not make it happen earlier, but are very excited to have it out today." When the Boxee Box first launched in November, the company said that it would make Netflix available by the end of 2010. After hitting some snags, it promised that Netflix was "still on track" for a launch at the end of January. Earlier this month, Boxee said in a blog post that it wasn't able to hit its self-imposed deadline because it had "not yet satisfied Netflix's security requirements." Luckily, that wait is finally over. But now Boxee has some catching up to do. Netflix streaming media has been running for quite some time on several of the device's competitors, including the Apple TV, Roku set-top boxes, and the Logitech Revue, among others.

If they are paying attention to blog comments, forum posts, tweets, etc. why have they not addressed the silly shape? What is so difficult about building a component that fits in a rack?

You know, a guy could get into this HT thing and drop a couple of bucks!
