Boxee Box Gets Priced at $199 – Available November 2010

Yesterday, Boxee’s Avner Ronen commented on the Apple TV announcement and explained why he thinks people will choose his product over Steve’s (or Google’s Google TV for that matter). Bottom line: he believes Boxee’s choice, openness, and lack of complexity in terms of menus and input systems will win at the end of the day. In the blog post he also stated that the upcoming Boxee Box would be $100 more expensive than the new Apple TV. So quick math tells us $99 (2nd gen Apple TV) + $100 = $199 for the Boxee Box. What do you think? Still Interested? Hardware-wise the Boxee Box is superior to the competition (other than, maybe, Logitech’s Revue Google TV box) — and the interface ain’t bad, either.
