D-Link Boxee net TV box priced and dated

D-Link’s Boxee media streaming net TV box, a potential rival for Apple’s set-top box, has been stamped with a UK release date and price.

The Boxee Box is based on the media centre software of the same name, and is powered not by an Nvidia Tegra 2 as was first intended, but an Intel Atom CE4100 SoC processor.

The switch was reportedly made due to concerns that the Nvidia solution would struggle running full 1080p footage smoothly. Funnily enough, the same Intel system-on-a-chip is on board Google’s set-top hardware.

The Boxee Box will offer a large library of web content upon its launch in November, including material from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Comedy Central, MTV Music, CNN, and the likes of Facebook, YouTube and Last.fm.

Connection wise, D-Link’s Boxee Box will come with an HDMI port, stereo and optical audio outputs, a pair of USB ports and an impressively chunky sounding remote sporting a full Qwerty keyboard.

The not-so-good news is that the price is a lot more than Apple is planning to ask for its hardware. The Boxee Box will set you back £199.
