Boxee gets a $6M catalyst

Some FANTASTIC news for Boxee fans all around, as they have quickly closed a Series B round of funding. The funding is impressive in this climate, but no doubt the investors saw the immense growth that Boxee has accomplished with such a small budget. This should guarantee the continuation and improvement for quite some time–which hopefully will result in more content deals for you the viewer to enjoy.


We are happy to announce that Boxee closed a $6M round of financing led by Boston-based General Catalyst with participation by prior investors Spark Capital and Union Square Ventures. Neil Sequeira from General Catalyst will join our board. We closed our Series A late last year, but given the momentum and opportunities we’ve seen over the past few months, we thought it made sense to bring in a new partner and additional funds.
