A new agreement between Comcast and Boxee will let users of third-party devices like the Boxee Box access encrypted basic TV channels.
Boxee has announced that has sold 200,000 units of its Boxee Box streaming set-top box, accounting for around 10 percent of its 2 million users.
Boxee is calling on its customers to speak out against a proposed policy change from the FCC that would allow cable operators to encrypt all of their programming, forcing the use of set-top boxes or CableCARDs even for basic cable.
Boxee announced back in December that its PC client would be shuttered, and the time has finally come: Boxee will remove all copies of its app for PCs by the end of today.
Boxee has released its $49 Live TV dongle, which streams over-the-air television, as well as a software update for its set-top box.
Boxee Box is an odd creature, but it will soon be an odd creature with live TV broadcasts.
