So 200,000 D-Link Boxee Boxes, and over 1.8M Boxee Download users...(but which have just been let go)
How many Iomega Boxee sales?
I question now the ability for Boxee to secure sufficient recurring revenues from its SW or its "Screen Retail Estate" for the advertising "featurettes".
(I presume Boxee gets paid for SW upgrades by its HW partners, as that would explain why Iomega Boxee is still on 1.2)
We have to remember that 200,000 Boxee Boxes is not 200,000 households. I have 4 for instance and there are many other Boxee enthusiasts with multiple Boxees.
I fear that if Boxee doesn't start reaching the mass market it will struggle. A big shame. Whats needed is for Boxee to secure those partnerships with smaller cable companies in the US it spoke off, that could potentially help with the numers...
