D-Link has combined the Boxee software with their Boxee Box, a device that removes the PC from the loop and delivers media to the HDTV. It pulls data from a home network, computer and Internet. It has a wireless capability of 802.11n, allowing for faster load times.
The Boxee Box also offers connectivity to social websites such as Facebook and the ability to RSS websites. In addition to videos the Boxee Box also connects to various Internet radio sites like Pandora.
While the box resembles the AppleTV an awful lot, it seemingly has more capabilities. The unit will be shipping in the first half of this year and retail for about $200.
