Boxee has just affirmed that the leaked Live TV dongle is legit, and it'll be splashing down on North American shores in January. The Boxee Box Live TV dongle will allow North American users to connect an antenna to their Box to watch channels like ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC in HD with no monthly fee -- assuming you're close enough to an OTA tower to receive said signals, of course. Once equipped, a Box will be able to fetch content from the major networks, Vudu, Netflix and Hulu, though you may want to spring for that bolstered internet connection.
Boxee Live TV works with signals from HDTV antennas (using ATSC) or an unencrypted cable connection (using ClearQAM), and a portable antenna is included. Users who live out in the 'burbs may want to consider something a bit beefier.
Sony Corp. is considering launching an Internet-based alternative to cable-TV service, people familiar with the situation said, posing the latest threat to the cable and satellite operators that dominate pay TV. The Japanese electronics and entertainment company has approached several big media companies to negotiate the rights to offer their TV channels over the Web in the U.S., the people said. Sony is proposing to beam the channels over Internet connections to Sony-made devices, including PlayStation gaming consoles, TV sets and Blu-ray players, the people said. Sony has sold about 18.1 million PlayStation 3 consoles in the U.S. alone, according to NPD Group Inc., and many homes have other Internet-connected Sony devices. The biggest U.S. cable operator, Comcast Corp., has about 22.4 million video subscribers and serves a geographic area with over 52 million homes.
A release from the company this morning says that Amazon's much anticipated 7-inch, $199 slate will beginning showing up on customers' doorsteps a little sooner than anticipated. "We're thrilled to be able to ship Kindle Fire to our customers earlier than we expected." said Amazon's Kindle VP, Dave Limp in the statement. "Kindle Fire quickly became the bestselling item across all of Amazon.com, and based on customer response we're building millions more than we'd planned." Amazon's promotional effort of the Kindle Fire, which many believe could be the first substantial challenger to Apple's iPad in the tablet market, has been closely controlled. For months, Amazon refused to even acknowledge it was developing a tablet. Then, earlier this fall it unveiled a whole new line of Kindles at greatly reduced prices while also introducing the Fire.
