Tired of shelling out cash every month to your local cable provider for channels you never watch? Well the Boxee Box is the best solution currently on the market for letting you access all of the digital content you love sans a monthly subscription. Its strange exterior isn’t the most home theater friendly design we’ve seen, but aesthetics aside, it still packs everything you’ll need to connect including an HDMI out port, wireless n networking, two USB ports, and an SD card reader. On the software front, Boxxee’s highly praised UI neatly organizes media from a variety of sources including Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu, and just about any other form of audio or video you have stored locally on a hard drive, SD card, or other networked computer. There’s also a fully functional web browser with Flash support and plenty of apps like MLB.tv NHL, and Pandora to add on to the media dog pile. Navigating through it all thankfully doesn’t require wielding a chunky full sized keyboard either, since a nifty dual-sided QWERTY remote provides all the buttons you’ll need in a palm-friendly package. If holding an actual remote sounds too old school iPhone and Android apps will let you do the same things via your phone.
