After several months, social media center Boxee is finally available in beta. Boxee lets you play media from your computer and other devices in your home network as well as stream or download moviews, tv shows, Â music and photos Â from Internet sources to your TV. Â If you don’t want to buy the Boxee Box which was launched recently, the Boxee software will allow you to do all the things you can do with the Boxee Box using your computer.
To kickstart the release of Boxee Beta, which you can download right now here, Boxee has also snagged partnerships with several content providers including TV.com, Blip.tv, Â and IGN. TV. com has several great shows including Family Guy, Heroes and more. Blip.tv is a great source for independently produced content and IGN is of course for gaming content. Â In addition, Boxee is also bringing in an app for the upcoming awesome movie Wolfman.
Boxee Beta is available for Windows, Linux and of course Mac OS X. For more details on what Boxee can do, check out an earlier post from the Boxee blog.
To get started using Boxee, you need to sign-up at this site, grab the software, connect your PC to your TV or get wait for the D-Link Boxee Box to be released, grab a popcorn and then sit back, relax and enjoy watching media content on your 32-inch HDTV.
