Broadcasters are aligning with one, blocking the others.
If you want all that cable/sat offers, you will need to get all of them.
The box is cool looking, but awkward. Where ya putting it? Can't set anything on top of it.
I dig the idea of IPTV, but with no net neutrality, if you have cable internet, and use IPTV instead, they can legally throttle back the bandwidth on that port, making 'appear' that IPTV is spotty/glitchy, which will nearly force you back to their TV.

If you're looking for a perfect device for streaming on-line content, this review is spot-on. The Boxee Box has a great interface, has made all the right inroads, but just isn't quite there yet, mostly due to the content providers trying to protect their dinosaur business models.
On the other hand, if you've got a lot of local media on a USB hard drive or network share (SMB works best), the Boxee Box is hard, maybe impossible, to beat at this time.
