Boxee TV’s refined blend of Live TV + No Limits DVR + Internet Apps is now available!
And while we announced a lot about Boxee TV earlier this month, there’s still lots of goodies to reveal here. First and foremost is where you can get it.
Where to Buy
We’ve partnered with the world’s biggest retailer, Walmart, to offer Boxee TV in all their US stores. You’ll be able to find them in the electronics section with a nice big display. In trying to reach a more mainstream audience with Boxee TV, Walmart was an easy choice since more than 100 million people visit Walmart in the US each month. As of today you can walk into any Walmart and pick up a Boxee TV. They’re also available at Walmart.com and at Boxee.tv.
Now that you know where to get your Boxee TV, we want to introduce you to a few more apps that will be available on it. We’ve already announced that premium apps like Netflix, VUDU, YouTube, Vimeo, and Pandora will be available on Boxee TV. Today that list grows to include…
- WSJ Live
We couldn’t be happier with this list of initial launch partners, and we’re looking forward to adding even more over the coming months.
As far as special offers go, we feel like our holiday deal can’t be beat. Everyone who buys one of the first Boxee TVs is going to receive:
- 3 months of Netflix for new & existing subscribers (normally $7.99 / month)
- 3 months No Limits DVR (normally $14.99 / month)
- 12 months free No Limits DVR for Boxee Box owners
- a $5.99 credit from VUDU for new subscribers
- 1 month of Spotify Premium for new subscribers
There’s no other device that’s going to give you that kind of offer - nearly a $75 value for free. And just because we’re really excited about our No Limits DVR that lets you record as much as you want - if you buy Boxee TV this year, you’ll only pay $9.99 / month for as long as you’re a subscriber. At this rate, just buying the box nearly pays for itself!
We told you about Boxee’s No Limits DVR last month and we can’t wait to roll this out to the whole country, but for starters we’ll be launching in 8 top TV markets including:
- New York City
- Washington DC
- Dallas / Ft. Worth
- Los Angeles
If you’re in and around these areas, you can use our simple DVR tool to see if it’s available in your neighborhood.Since this DVR is based in the Cloud, as soon as it’s available in your city, you’ll be able to start using it right away whether you buy your Boxee TV or 9 months from now.
As we begin service in these markets we assume there’s going to a few growing pains so we’re marking the service as BETA, but most users should have full functionality (and it will be FREE during this period).
We think Boxee TV is the perfect blend of everything we want to watch in a way that suits the on demand, on any device lifestyle. Because of this, Boxee TV is easily the most ambitious set top box on the market. Pick one up and see for yourself just how powerful No Limits can be.
