Boxee showed off its iPad app at a small East London gathering this week. The new app is not yet available, but those who attended the sold out event got a sneak peek of what Boxee has in store for its iPad users.
Boxee is home theater PC software that runs on a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer. The company also produces a set-top box that takes the place of the computer and lets you watch streaming video on your TV. The tablet app will bring Boxee to your iPad and let you watch streaming content, video shared by your friends and video files from your local network if you run the Boxee Media server. If you own a Boxee box, you can also send content from your iPad to your TV. No word on when the app will debut in the app store, but if Boxee is showing it off to people, the launch can't be too far away.
