Boxee users will soon be able to access their video collections via a free iPad app. Boxee, Inc. made the announcement at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show. According to a blog posting at Boxee.tv:
We have been working the past few months on Boxee for iPad, and while it is not ready to launch we are giving people at the CES Show a sneak peek of the App. It enables you to access videos from your Watch Later list as well as from your Feed (stuff shared from Facebook / Twitter), and staying true to Boxee roots also enables you to stream videos directly to the iPad from your PC/Mac (without requiring you to sync). You can watch videos on the iPad using the new app, but it only takes one click to send that video to your D-Link/Iomega/ViewSonic Boxee device. “Ze nice,” as we say in the office.This is super news. Boxee allows users to view videos from Twitter, Facebook and Netflix via a Boxee Box or from their PC or Mac. A Boxee app for the iPad will be a great addition!
