Boxee Looking to Get Hollywood Content With RoxioNow Deal http://bit.ly/amE5ZA Boxee’s on a roll even though the hardware is delayed.
Important step for Boxee: having that direct access to premium movie content will make the service that much more valuable. Boxee already does a good job of indexing and making available web video. Hulu keeps blocking them, though.
Boxee is looking to expand the amount of premium content it has available with a deal that could soon enable its users to purchase feature films. Boxee is integrating Sonic Solutions’ RoxioNow video platform into its software as a way to gain access to a wider range of film titles — including new releases and major Hollywood hits — from content providers like Blockbuster and Best Buy.
