According to a blog posting by Boxee CEO Avner Ronen, the Boxee Box by D-Link will ship in November in the United States and Canada. The original plan was to have the Boxee Box out by the end of the second quarter, "but that time-frame proved overly ambitious," wrote Ronen.

"Our vision is to make the Boxee experience on a set top box as good as (and where we can, better than) the one you already know on a PC," he said. "The goal is to play HD videos from the Web or a local network in 1080p and use hardware acceleration whenever possible. And to provide a TV browser experience that can handle almost everything you throw at it, including Flash 10.1. We are looking forward to the November launch with D-Link and believe it will deliver a user experience that sets the standard for accessing stuff from the Internet and from your home network on your TV."
