Boxee beta announced for December 7 release

An e-mail sent to Boxee users this morning reveals that the beta version of Boxee will be unveiled at a special event in New York City on December 7 at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. The beta news comes on the heels of a Boxee box being planned for a 2010 release.

The beta release of Boxee includes:
  • A redesigned interface
  • Improved navigation
  • The ability to search for TV shows and movies both on the Internet and on local networks
  • A queuing function, most likely similar to what Hulu has now.
  • Shortcuts for apps, movies, and other programs
There will be a 4-week early-access period before the beta version is officially released on January 7 at CES. Those who want a sneak preview do need to sign up.

Those in New York City who want to attend the beta unveiling can reserve a spot. A live stream will also be provided through Boxee's blog or directly through the program itself.
