The system also features Facebook integration, allowing you to see what shows your friends are watching, with their profiles displayed under each show within the sidebar menu."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1326910356.usr110171.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>You should be able to find this new Boxee product in stores in the next few days. It will set you back $50 (US), but it does offer some impressive new functionality. Check out the Read link for a demo video.</p>

These is one of those products that seems to be a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. It's hard to imagine there are too many Boxee owners that don't have a TV that already has a tuner built in. If they had included DVR functionality via a USB attached hard drive, THAT would have been the killer feature.
