Looks like Google’s about to challenge Boxee.

While it might not be a head-to-head battle royale, it certainly seems like Boxee might have a challenge on their hands as someone from a Google code team is working on getting Hulu and Netflix support directly into front row. Now, I love boxee and use it quite frequently (add me…I’m macgasm… go figure!), there’s something to be said about front row getting support for these other services. To be frank, it likely means a lot less people will be turning to Boxee once the Google product matures a little. I’m personally more likely to use the tools that are built into an OS than download another third party application, especially if it means I can run my Mac Mini on the TV straight out of the box. It might be awhile for that to become reality however, and until it gets a little more stable, I’ll be sticking with Boxee.
