The new Boxee TV box got unveiled and it looks very promising. Boxee offers a single UI for DVR, Cable TV and Internet Apps like Netflix. The dual tuner box can record shows while you watch live TV. The DVR works with cloud storage and costs you a monthly fee of $14.99. The advantage though is the DVR storage is unlimited. No more cleaning up of hard-drive space. You just set your recordings and watch your favorite shows.
The Boxee TV No Limits DVR feature is rolling out to 8 of the top TV markets in the US: New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia and D.C. We will be rolling out in additional markets later in 2013. I am not quite sure why the Cloud based DVR is on a limited roll-out.
The Boxee TV box will be available in November for $99. ViaBoxee TV.

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.
