Exactly right. Boxee chose their business model, if they don't make money on the sale of the box thats their choice. It doesn't change the fact that we paid money for our boxes. They're a business who received a significant amount of VC money and they're not automatically entitled to our unswerving support. Support and trust have to be earned. I bought a Boxee box because in the UK we have very limited options with streamers and because I used 0.9 and liked it. I hope they succeed, not least because I'm out of my return window for my box and I understand they're a small team and the issue I have isn't that there are some bugs, but that they released a product that simply wasn't ready and since then have been consistently making promises they haven't kept. Don't tell me something is coming today (twice) unless you know it is! It's very basic PR.

Vudu, Hulu +, etc.
When I sign in to netflix on my xbox, they know I am using that device and they pay according to that essentially. Same as the others.
