Boxee aggregates the best Internet content and locally stored media and makes them available through an easy-to-use interface that’s designed for a TV and remote. Boxee is available as a free download for Mac and Windows computers as well as via the Boxee Box by D-Link. The Boxee Box is a set-top box powered by Boxee that brings everything you love to watch on the Web to your TV without the need for a PC. Through the Boxee App Library and via Boxee’s unique QWERTY remote, users can find and download apps from the most popular video, music, and photo services including Netflix, VUDU, NHL, MLB, Pandora, Flickr and soon blinkx!
The blinkx app for Boxee gives users the ability to search across blinkx’s index of more than 35 million hours of video on the Web and offers three distinct entertainment channels:

"The proliferation of Internet-enabled TVs and intelligent set-top boxes means viewers will soon be able to tap into the Web’s vast domain of video content directly from their televisions," said Suranga Chandratillake, founder and CEO, blinkx. "The blinkx app, which combines our robust search technology with our massive index of online video, perfectly complements Boxee’s existing entertainment options and will further allow Boxee users to find, discover and enjoy the best that Internet video has to offer."
As the pioneer in video search technology, blinkx has built a reputation as the smartest way to find rich media on the Web. The company has made more than 720 partners and indexed over 35 million hours of video and audio content to date. blinkx has also opened its TV API to provide partners in the fast-growing Connected TV ecosystem—from box makers and TV manufacturers, to app developers and game consoles—access to blinkx’s video index.
