“We’ve been writing a lot recently about Boxee, who develop a powerful media centre application for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and the Apple TV,” Jonny Evans reports for Distorted-Loop.
“For Apple TV users, of course, the big news is that after an extensive push by the hard-working developers behind the project, the new version of the software that’s compatible with the recently-software-updated Apple TV 2.3 is available now,” Evans reports.
“Seems not only media-junkies have been paying attention. Boxee recently revealed a $4 million investment from Spark Capital and Union Square Ventures which will see Bijan Sabet from Spark and Fred Wilson from Union Square join the Boxee board,” Evans reports.
“Boxee lets you access content from third-party providers including Hulu, CBS, Comedy Central, or Last.fm using an intuitive and neatly-designed interface. It will play most audio and video file formats and also display images from various sources, including physical media, flash drives and the ‘Net. YouTube, Apple movie trailer and podcasts are also supported, as are image sharing services, Flickr and Picasa. There’s a feast of additional features, including Twitter support,” Evans reports.
