$30 off Boxee box: good deal?

Tue Sep 14, 2010 7:08 pm

Love my Roku, but am thinking about buying a Boxee box to supplement it.

They're $30 of for pre-orders (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0038JE07O/b00011ab0a-20). Good deal?

Well, I'm certainly not really qualified to answer this, but I'll throw in my .02. I've been playing with the Boxee software for a couple of days and I'm just going to buy a Roku and skip Boxee for now. I'd be interested to learn what Boxee has that supplements Roku? Boxee doesn't support Amazon Video on Demand; I couldn't really get it to work with TwitTV--although I'm told that it does. But I really would like to know what you find in Boxee that would supplement Roku?

That's fairly dated (even if it's not all that old). It's all the previous lineup of Roku models. The omitted optical audio for the Roku, and also the ethernet connection. They may be missing info for the other systems as well, but I wouldn't know.
