Coming soon: Boxee Payments

For those of you who were wondering what Boxee’s business model was, this shed’s a bit of light to it. And it makes perfect sense…it will be interesting to see if apps that were already there will become commercial now, or if this will lead the way to bigger and better video offerings.

Boxee Blog

This is why we plan to release a Payment Platform this summer where users will be able to make purchases with one click on the remote. The content partners we launch with will offer shows, movies and channels that were previously not available to Boxee users. The content owners will be able to package and price as they wish, including pay-per-view and subscription. Content partners will have the flexibility to decide what they make available, whether it’s premium content, content from their existing library, or extras that will never make it “on air”.
