According to reports Samsung has bought Boxee.


"Samsung has acquired key talent and assets from Boxee," said a Samsung spokeswoman. "This will help us continue to improve the overall user experience across our connected devices."
A representative from Boxee confirmed the company was joining Samsung.
As the world's biggest TV manufacturer, Samsung has been expanding features on its Internet-connected TV sets such as Skype video calling and apps that directly tap Netflix and other streaming video content.

Interesting - I'm not a fan of Samsung's 'smart TV' integration... so I'll be interested to see what their Boxee purchase brings to the table. I wonder if it means a highly featured BluRay player / TV, or a separate steaming box?
