Boxee

Boxee was acquired by Samsung in July 2013.

Headquartered in New York City, NY, Boxee is a free, open-source software platform that integrates personal media with internet media along with social networking. Boxee’s social networking component allows users to share information about what they’re listening to or watching with other Boxee users or friends on social networks like Twitter, Facebook, etc. The company’s goal is to be the “Firefox for the 10 foot experience” and be integrated into every device that touches the big screen in the home so consumers have unprecedented access to content.
