The beta release of Boxee includes:
- A redesigned interface
- Improved navigation
- The ability to search for TV shows and movies both on the Internet and on local networks
- A queuing function, most likely similar to what Hulu has now.
- Shortcuts for apps, movies, and other programs
Those in New York City who want to attend the beta unveiling can reserve a spot. A live stream will also be provided through Boxee's blog or directly through the program itself.
