D-Link launches Boxee Box

Posted on: November 11, 2011


  • D-Link India introduced their popular Boxee Box in India to get first mover advantage in the nascent market. The D-Link Boxee Box is based on open-source multimedia software—Boxee. The software can be installed on a Mac, Windows or Linux machine and it will categorize multimedia (images, music, videos) on your system. In addition, Boxee also pulls in content from computers on your network allowing you to have a comprehensive library of your multimedia spread throughout your computers.

 

  • In the US, Boxee comes with several applications for 3rd party services like Netflix, Youtube, Pandora, Grooveshark etc. In India however, D-Link’s press release for Boxee Box launch doesn’t mention any of the major content providers. As noticed by Medianama, country-locked service—Pandora—is listed, which is intriguing.

 

  • D-Link and Yahoo announced a partnership in early 2011 during CES and looking at how both companies are trying to get a footing in India’s online multimedia market, it wouldn’t be a bad idea for them to join forces.
