How to Keep Boxee Being The Best
I had an App or Repo Idea that would keep Boxee being the best in-light of a lot of competition (Apple & Google) that can easily roll over and squish us in our sleep with their resources of software developers & advertisement.
Hotspot Shield Boxee APP!
I was thinking how amazing it would be to have an App or Repo that would easily log onto any other App (Netflix, Pandora, Hulu) or website by using a list of built in Proxy Server (Depending where you live) to long-on with an American IP so that the Netflix content or Apps will work as if you're in the US. This would be like using Hotspot Shield to get US NETFLIX - A service I would DEFINITELY PAY FOR!
Doing research into other units, it looks like a lot of people that use these Web Tv boxes live outside of the US are quite concerned when purchasing this unit about how it will work outside of the US. Living in Canada, I can't use a lot of the Apps & everyone knows that Netflix in Canada works but the US content is MUCH better.
An App or Repo of this kind would definitely be greatly accepted and has a lot of potential in kicking any other unit's Butts... Apple will never come out with it because they're too conservative, but I can see someone from Google make an app.
Damn, I wish I knew how to write code & I would make it myself!
I see that Hotspot Shield makes a mobile App for the Android Platform! Cool!
