Boxee has signed a deal with an unnamed manufacturer to produce a set-top box compatible with its service, the company has said. The device will have its public debut (in mockup form, at least) at a December 7 meetup in NYC. Boxee says it would also reveal more details on the set-top unit at that time.
The deal has been in the works since the 2009 CES, according to CEO Avner Ronen. Ronen disclosed in a blog post that during the show, Boxee met with several manufacturers interested in integrating the Boxee service into an existing set top box or completely new unit.
Technologizer will be at the Boxee meetup next month, so stay tuned…
