Boxee Live TV Coming in Jan

If you have a Boxee set top box that you really like to use, but you want to be able to watch normal live TV as well this is for you. This is the perfect thing for Boxee users that don't have cable or satellite and want to route some live OTA TV stations locally to their set via the box as well.

The Live TV dongle will land in January, but it can be pre-ordered right now. The pre-order price is $49. Once the dongle is installed, you can watch your local network affiliates using the Boxee box. When you favorite network shows are, over you can then fire up your Hulu, Vimeo, or Netflix videos that you want to see and keep watching.

The Live TV dongle will not have a monthly fee associated with it. You will need an antenna of some sort to connect to the dongle via a coaxial cable. Since it uses coaxial cable, I assume it won't do HD resolutions. The Live service will be in the US and Canada only at first. It also offers no DVR functions.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
