I’m watching more and more video over the Internet. It all started when I’d (illegally) download South Park episodes in RealPlayer format. I’d set up the download before bed, and if all went as planned, I’d have my 7 megabyte file waiting for me in the morning ready to watch in all it’s low quality, grainy glory. Times have changed, and some broadbrand providers can deliver a file that size in just over a second. That means that we’re watching more and more video over the Internet, which also means that we’re watching more and more video on our laptops. That’s a waste when you have a perfectly good tv with a much bigger screen sitting in your living room. I ended up buying an AppleTV so that I can watch MLB.tv and Netflix on my flat screen, but I strongly considered a Boxee Box. Boxee is located in New York, NY, and they provide both software and hardware to make watching online video a more pleasurable experience–namely by enabling you to watch on whatever device you want to watch on.
Boxee started out by building free software for all kinds of devices–Macs, PCs, Apple TVs, and more. You can still use that software, but now Boxee has a Box that you can get for under $200, hook up to your tv, and start watching. The cool thing about Boxee is that they provide access to an extremely wide range of content. They say that “if you can watch it on the web, you can watch it on your TV with Boxee.” I’m pretty sure that excludes Hulu (because they block devices like Boxee), but the statement is mostly true. It’s going to be interesting to see how the whole watch Internet video on your tv thing develops, but right now Boxee has a great market position. If you want to be part of the Boxee team, then check out their Jobs page. Right now they’re hiring in Technical Support, Front End UI Develoment, and iPad and iPhone App Development. They also have a higher level Marketing position and a Marketing Internship posted, so maybe there’s a chance that you can squeeze in somewhere in between.
