Boxee is Toast
Samsung purchased Boxee for $30 million. I’ve been a long-time Boxee user that’s been getting increasingly frustrated by the way the system works. Each release seems to cause more issues than it fixes, and the focus on ‘user experience’ seems to be non-existent. It worked better when the interface was simpler, and while the newer interface has more features, it’s also far buggier.
Saying that, this is a perfect purchase for Samsung! I only used Boxee to stream from a network drive, and that solution is easy to replace. Meanwhile, for things like youtube, netflix, and most other features the Apple TV is perfect.
