Boxee has arranged to stream content directly fromNetflix to the Boxee Box manufactured by D-Link.
On his company's blog, CEO Avner Ronen wrote of the Netflix deal: "We were bummed that we could not make it happen earlier but are very excited to have it out today."
The company said Boxee software will be automatically updated within 24 hours. It also offered instructions on how to trigger the update manually for those who don't want to wait.
Netflix on the Box is different from the version you see on the PC/Mac versions of Boxee, the company said, inasmuch as it has a new Netflix user interface, which Netflix will continue to update.
Netflix on the Box will simultaneously launch in Canada.
