Boxee box to come to Blighty
D-Link outs delivery date
D-Link's Boxee-branded set-top box will go on sale in the UK on 12 November.
The box has HMDI for the TV connection, and 802.11n Wi-Fi - 2.4GHz only, so far as we can see - and Ethernet for the network link. It all runs on Intel's Atom chippage.
Once connected up, you can play internet content, slot in an SD card, or hook up a hard drive to either of the box's two USB ports. It supports pretty much every format there is apart from DRM-encumbered files. ®
That's going to stack well....
Still, I guess that's what you get when you leave case design up to the newly recruited graduate design wonk. Ho hum.

I dont get why Boxee is targetting £200?
Looks like someone was cutting corners in the design.
