Add Vudu to Boxee's list of streaming video tricks.

The Wal-Mart-owned Web video service will be offered as a native app on Boxee's hardware and software platforms starting in November. On the D-Link Boxee Box (due November 10), the full library of Vudu movies--including titles in 1080p HDX video and 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus surround sound--will be available. On the Mac and Windows software version of Boxee, the same content will be available, but video output will be limited to standard-definition playback.

The $200 Boxee Box is the fourth and final major Internet TV device to hit stores this fall, following new Roku boxes, an updated Apple TV, and the first wave of Google TV products . We'll have a full review by mid-November.
