Boxee acquired by ? someone, announcement coming next week (exclusive) | VentureBeat (click for full article) by Tom Cheredar - June 13, 2013 "Streaming media-device/service startup Boxee is expected to announce that it's been acquired sometime next week, VentureBeat has learned from sources familiar with the matter. Earlier today, we reported that Boxee was seeking a potential buyer after initially trying to raise a new round of funding. The company declined to comment to VentureBeat about those claims. Boxee's latest "pivot" away from providing open-source software for desktops and TVs was ill-received by its biggest supporters. And its new Boxee TV/Cloud DVR storage service (for recording live programming from HD broadcast signals or cable TV) also wasn't a huge hit with consumers despite providing apps to access Netflix, Vudu, Spotify, and others."
