As for the applications, Boxee TV needs to add more content which the Roku provides by default such as Amazon Video On-Demand and HBO GO. I understand that the Boxee TV was just released, so I will be patient on the supported applications. For all streaming subscriptions, we will be using Apple TV just because the applications are more polished. Due to how "Apple-centric" my house is, I am able to use Airplay Mirroring for all other content online. So I can be patient with Boxee TV in the meantime.
So if anyone wants to ditch cable, this $99 product is worth the investment. The Boxee TV is a great set-top box that provides everything for people looking to ditch cable; even if you do have cable, you can still use the Boxee TV as a Live TV + no limits DVR set-top box.
I applaud Boxee Incorporated for providing consumers an alternative to cable television and trying to battle the cable companies. Boxee's battle is going to be fierce and I am happy to buy their products even if some basic applications are missing during initial release. I feel very passionate about giving the consumer multiple options and currently living in a city that is dominated by Xfinity/Comcast, I like having an alternative to traditional cable. Boxee TV is being sold at Walmart, so you can check it out prior to ordering online.
