Just about every Internet connected media device now a days has access to Netflix. This shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the mail-order/streaming video company has well over 10 million active subscribers. However, while most set-top boxes have Netflix connectivity, not all do. One decently popular piece of hardware that is missing this key feature is none other than the Boxee.
Now, earlier this month we let you know that the Boxee would be getting Netflix functionality by the end of the month. However, it was just made known today that the Netflix roll-out is being delayed with the company only telling us that access to the service is “anticipated soon”. What’s the reason for the delay, you ask? Well, we aren’t entirely sure but reports say that Netflix was not satisfied with the security precautions put in place behind Boxee’s implementation of Netflix.
We’ll let you know as more information is made known regarding the roll-out of Netflix to the Boxee.
