Netflix To Offer Moviebeam-Like Box For Downloads?

So it seems like, from these comments by the newly hired Netflix VP of original programming Eric Besner, speaking at an LA event. He said that the firm is planning to introduce a proprietary set-top box with an Internet connection that could download movies overnight. Does this mean it is planning to tie up with relaunched Moviebeam, which offers movies through a box, though not through the Internet/broadband connection…or does it mean it will just tie up with someone to offer an ITV download box? And it might be launched this year. But Besner also mentioned that this is just one of the online download plans the company is working on.
