    Sponsored post or what?

      No, not sponsored. We have covered Apple TV and Mac media centers on multiple occasions and Boxee Box looks to be a genuinely worthy competitor in the niche.

      The Boxee software is actually free, you can run it on top of Mac OS X (or Windows and Linux):

      You can also install the Boxee app on top of an Apple TV:

      It is worth checking out even if you have no interest in obtaining the hardware. If a sale of the hardware is made via the Amazon link we do get a small commission through the Amazon partner program.

    And it’ll let you stream/watch HD YouTube videos since the interface is based on Mozilla/Firefox. My WDTV Live HD can’t do that. I will buy it but I guess I have to wait for a while — I’m in Stockholm, Sweden.
