Boxee Box Gets VUDU Streaming Movie Rentals

We’re just 13 days away until the shipping of the D-link Boxee Box on November 10th, 2010.  Today, Boxee announced that they have signed a deal to bring premium streaming HD content king, VUDU, to the Boxee Box, PC,  and MAC.

Per Boxee Blog, “Boxee is honored to be VUDU’s very first Mac & Windows delivery platform, allowing users both new and old to access VUDU’s huge library of content from any computer.  In turn, VUDU will be Boxee’s first premium pay-per-view movie service with access to new release movies as soon as they come out on DVD along with a huge catalogue of TV shows and critically acclaimed films.

Boxee’s free software will give viewers access to VUDU’s immense movie collection in standard definition. Users who have the Boxee Box by D-Link will experience the mind-blowing quality of VUDU’s full HD and HDX library delivered directly onto their televisions in 1080p with Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound.

Each movie rental will cost $2 for 2 nights.  Which is not too bad really, since Vudu is owned by Wal-mart. I can’t wait to give it a try on my Boxee Box!

It also has Wireless b/g/n, wireless keyboard and mouse, and vesa mount.

Maybe we can get our hands on one of these units and see if Nvidia was able to fix the chipset bottleneck that has kept the ION 2 from playing Flash 10.1 smoothly.
