Press for Boxee

In a posting on its corporate blog, Monday, OTT specialist Boxee announced the launch of a Boxee app from Livestation, a UK-based company that streams live news from a range of international sources, including the BBC, Al-Jazeera and France 24. The app can be found in the Boxee App Library by searching on "live tv news."

Boxee was scheduled to release its set-top box, the Boxee Box, in June, but the company pushed back the release until the fourth quarter as it and partner D-Link continued to polish the product. Several news reports this week said the release date had been moved up from the November date announced by Boxee CEO Avner Ronen last month.

Boxee, software that allows users to watch movies and TV shows from the Web on a television, is preparing to introduce a set-top box in a few months.

The video above shows Zach Klein, who oversees design at Boxee, talking about the box and the production methods the company is using to make it.

The other day I told you about Boxee, the free and super-slick media-center software that streams video from the likes of Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube.
