boxee gets Lost

boxee certainly knows which direction it is going, and in this case they are heading right to digital streaming stardom. boxee, already includes Hulu, CBS, and WB has now added ABC to it’s allstart lineup :). You can check out my blog post here for a little more information on but rest assured your favorites are all here including Lost, Scrubs, Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives. The  Mac version will be out immediately with a Windows version to follow shortly. Below is a snippet from the blog post.


We strongly believe that given the option most users will opt to streaming a TV Show (with a reasonable amount of ads) rather than using a file-sharing service. the online streaming offered by ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, etc. has made great progress over the past 12 months in terms of quality, breadth of selection and release windows (i.e. the time it takes for the show to be available online after it originally aired). in my opinion they are creating a great alternative to the file-sharing networks. if they want to really eliminate illegal downloads they should release it simultaneously online (in HD) and remove the geo-restrictions, but i’ll save that discussion for another post.
