Popbox HD hopes to simplify streaming content
Popbox HD offers most of the same Internet and local storage streaming services as its predecessor, now all in an easier-to-use package.
LAS VEGAS--Just announced at CES is Popbox HD, the latest offering from Syabas, the company behind Popcorn Hour. The device can stream digital media from almost any source you can throw at it in addition to offering media from new Internet channels.
With the Popbox, you'll be able to directly receive content from Netflix, Twitter, IMDb, Clicker, FunSpot (gaming), Crunchyroll (Asain entertainment site), and SHOUTcast.
But perhaps the most notable advancement in regard to the Popbox is the device's brand new user interface overhaul. Promising a much more seamless experience, the Popbox goes on sale in March for $130.
