The Boxee TV is official, so what do we think of its antenna / ClearQAM broadcast-to-cloud DVR aspirations? We'll dig into that, as well as Simple.TV and Aereo's announcements in the past week. A JVC-branded HDTV is launching with integrated SlingPlayer support, and AMC is finally back on Dish Network. We'll also take a peek at the latest happenings in 3D from 3net and Fox's I, Robot conversion, before digging into Syfy and Trion Entertainment's TV show / video game combo, Defiance.
