Lol - good work big media!
So, for once I click on one of those ads the Boxee people put on the front screen.
"Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Trailer" - sounds stupid, but hey.
But even stupider is what awaits me once it moves on to YouTube:
"This video contains content from FOX, who has blocked it on copyright grounds. Sorry about that."
Lol, yeah Google you are sorry, Fox should be sorry - here I was going to watch one of your ads for free, and you don't even want me to

That's hilarious. Incidentally, here is a link to a working version of the trailer:

Not sure why those damn things are listed in the first place. Do people REALLY take advantage of this and watch? Not one of them have ever 'enticed' me enough to click to watch. Complete waste if you as me. Is another one of Boxee's team of getting some sort of revenue from this junk?

I click on them once in a while. I've seen some cool stuff like that Nintendo one about a month ago.

I for one like them. You should try it some times, they do have good stuff once in awhile. I discovered Adele that way.
But don't get me wrong I wish it would be customizable so that I could put my own stuff there.

I love trailers...as a movie fan it gives me a short synopsis about the theme of the movie,the cast...and wether I will have any interest in seeing this in theatres.If so,I will research it further to determine if I feel it is worth seeing in theaters...or wait for the DVD..

Great points everyone. I suppose I just (attempt) to use my Box for one purpose, and one purpose only... however it is unable to do THAT ONE purpose.
Enjoy the features that the Team gives you then. Unfortunately, they are all useless to me...

I wouldn't call them ads. More like a recommended watching feed direct from the Boxee staff. Most of the time they're just random cool videos from the web.
