The Boxee Box is well on its way to being a complete solution for streaming media needs, and Vudu is a big piece of the puzzle.

Vudu is an alternative to Netflix for those that are looking for quality over quantity.  You pay by the rental instead of monthly, but you get a 1080p resolution at 24 frames per second and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound.

The folks at Vudu are so sure you'll notice a difference that they're giving Boxee users a free rental in the form of a $5.99 credit on your account. 

In addition to Vudu, the firmware update added a few tweaks to searching, web browsing and even organizing media.
