At the South by Southwest Interactive Festival, Boxee announced that it’s now offering 20 to 30 shows from online video service blip.tv on Boxee, including shows like “Casanovas” and “Epic Fu.” While not replacements for the TV network content that Hulu’s lineup had brought to Boxee, the blip.tv deal signals that Boxee plans to seek new paths toward its goal of becoming a viable over-the-top cable alternative.
For blip.tv, Boxee represents yet another route to the consumer and adds to blip’s existing distribution partners like AOL, MSN and iTunes, said Mike Hudack, CEO of blip.tv.
In addition to the blip.tv deal, Boxee also launched its iPhone app, providing another point of entry to the Boxee service.

  1. As a producer who’s just launched a show on Blip.tv, we’re really excited about this additional distribution opportunity. One reason we are shooting our shows in HD is to make it possible for our shows to be watched and enjoyed on a nice big widescreen TV in people’s living rooms. Cool stuff.

  2. Terror notifications in European countries. Proper. I am much more terrified of idiot gun men and women with this nation. Normally feel safe and sound within the EU.

  3. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
