Weekend Poll: Battle of the Boxes Edition

8 Comments

This is shaping up to be an exciting year for online video in the living room: Google TV is scheduled to come out this fall, Boxee is almost ready to sell its first set-top boxes as well, and now comes news that Apple will push its long-rumored next-generation Apple TV with $0.99 TV rentals — a price point that already helped the iPod to succeed.

So what is it going to be for you? Are you looking to combine TV content with web apps and search, like Google is promising, are you a fan of Boxee’s polished UI and growing app catalog, or are you just about ready to buy the new Apple TV, despite the fact that we don’t know all that much about the device yet?

Please let us know by answering the poll, and feel free to elaborate in the comments!

Considering Roku is the de facto leader in the space, why is the Roku player not listed?

Good question. I own 3 ROKU’s and am extremely satisfied. Well made and well thought out.

If ROKU comes out with a new box capable of web browsing with a keyboard on the remote, 1080p I’ll buy one pronto. The future of how content will be delivered is IPTV.

For sure, it won’t be a google device. Google already possesses far too much information about me; I don’t need to give them the opportunity to mine my viewing habits and interests too…

I’ll stick with my HTPC running Windows Media Center and Zinc.tv

Sticking with my Mac mini, the flexibility to run and play anything is important.
