It seems like Boxee is making a push to be relevant in the set-top world. We all know that content is king when it comes to internet video. With that in mind, Boxee announced today that they signed an agreement with CBS. From EngadgetHD:
The New York Times is reporting that the company has inked a deal with CBS for selling episodes through the software platform. As you know, the aforementioned network has traditionally tread carefully in the digital distro arena, while this is the first such deal between Boxee and a television network.
While I think it is great to see the advancement in Boxee, I am little leary of paying for network television shows on the internet. Isn’t that what a DVR is for? I do not think this announcement at the end of the day is a game changer, rather it is just another means for people to watch television.
