Janko’s made no secret of the fact that he likes Boxee’s set-top box, and as a master of the device he’s got plenty of good advice on how to get the most out of it. But what are three simple ways to use the Boxee Box at its full potential? That’s what this week’s episode of Cord Cutters is all about!

Next week, unfortunately, we won’t have a new episode of the show for you — but we’ve got something pretty rad planned instead. As we announced yesterday, we’re having a meet-up in San Francisco at Summit SF (which I am told has some very yummy desserts). Call it Cord Cutters Live, if you will. Full details:

What: The Inaugural Cord Cutters Meetup
When: Jan. 25, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Where: Summit SF, 780 Valencia Street (@19th Street) San Francisco.

The whole Cord Cutters team will be there, as well as some familiar faces from our Cord Cutters Confessions episode, and so any local cord cutters (or those curious about the cord cutting experience) are very much welcome to attend and discuss the cable-free life!

And if you can’t be there, no worries — the Internet means that you can still share your experiences and questions with us via Twitter or email. So please do share them, thanks for your support of the show, and if you’re in San Francisco, hopefully see you next week!
