Default New Live TV Functionality For Boxee Box Users

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/10/boxee-box-live-tv-dongle-hands-on-video/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/10/...hands-on-video/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Initially announced back in November, this tool pipes coaxial signals through to a user's Boxee Box, allowing users to connect their antennas to a Box and stream select channels at no monthly fee. 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.
