Boxee has been one of the earliest companies to offer internet-streaming services, coupled with a set-top box of its own. It has been around for 6 years and now, as a result of the acquisition by Samsung, the company is finally shutting down. However, Boxee says that the transition will impact the customers very slightly.

Samsung is obviously not buying Boxee to take care of the company. Rather, Boxee has been acquired to bolster Samsung’s Smart TV business. So as soon as the acquisition happens, the company itself ceases to exist while its technology and team go on to help Samsung improve its Smart TVs.

While the end of the company means anyone who owns a Boxee device would no longer have access to Boxee service, the company assures that these customers will still have access to other online music and video services such as Pandora and Netflix. In other words, Boxee owners will still be able to enjoy online music and video streaming on their set-top boxes, albeit from non-Boxee sources.

The company had been testing out the Cloud DVR feature, which allows people to record TV programs online. Boxee originally intended to offer a free as well as a paid version  of this feature.  But Cloud DVR had been a beta offering until now, which customers were able to make use of for free. So no one had paid any money for the feature so far. In other words, as the company goes out of business, not many would want refunds of any kind.
