Boxee has signed on to use Widevine's digital rights management, virtual DVD controls and adaptive streaming technologies on its software platform.

As a result of the integration, Boxee said its customers would be able to access more high-quality, secure content than ever before.

"We are excited to work with Boxee, one of the most innovative media center platforms available today," said Widevine CEO Brian Baker.

"Currently, the Widevine platform is available in over 250 million CE devices worldwide, and we continue to widen our footprint in the global CE device market," Baker continued. "This agreement with Boxee moves us closer to our goal of becoming the world's foremost provider of video optimization solutions and DRM."
