In tandem with the launch of the Boxee Box, the folks at Boxee have announced brand new software for the streaming solution.

New features like Vevo and Vice apps as well as an Accuweather application are live, but it's Netflix streaming – the one big feature initially missing from the Box – that's getting people really excited.  Not only will Netflix launch on the Boxee Box before the end of the year, but future Boxee controllers will even sport a dedicated Netflix button.

Of course, the Boxee Box will still do everything else you were promised.  It handles a huge variety of digital media files including just about every video codec you could ask for.  It can handle a 1080p resolution and it can even pass through 7.1 channel audio to your receiver.

In addition to all that, Boxee has announced that a Hulu Plus app will be on the way soon.  An official release date has yet to be revealed for that.

The Boxee Box is available now for a price of $199.
