Paid Content Coming to Boxee This Summer
Wednesday, January 20, 2010 - 4:47 PM EST
Posted by: Glenn

Boxee today announced that paid content will be coming to Boxee this summer via their new Payment Platform. According to the company, this platform will allow users to make one-click purchases of shows, movies and channels in the form of pay-per-view or subscription packages.

Users want to see more content on Boxee. Content owners want to be paid for what they produce (whether that's TV Shows, movies, music, or applications). We don't believe these are conflicting interests.

This is why we plan to release a Payment Platform this summer where users will be able to make purchases with one click on the remote. The content partners we launch with will offer shows, movies and channels that were previously not available to Boxee users. The content owners will be able to package and price as they wish, including pay-per-view and subscription. Content partners will have the flexibility to decide what they make available, whether it's premium content, content from their existing library, or extras that will never make it "on air".


Free content will also remain on Boxee, but this platform should set up an interesting ecosystem of premium content going forward. What do you think?
