Boxee welcomes Justin.TV to the block…

Justin.TV started as a guy with a webcam on his head and 3g-enabled laptop on his back. It’s now grown into the leading live video site on the web for people to broadcast, watch and interact around live video. With more than 41 million visitors per month and 428,000 channels broadcasting live video, Justin.tv has become a mecca for live entertainment… and now it’s available on Boxee.

We’re excited about Justin.TV’s App not only because of the content, but also because it was originally built by a boxee user and Justin.TV fan, Ike Gilbert. His initial app grabbed our attention and received a lot of support from the community so we put him in touch with the guys from Justin.TV who collaborated with him to bring out an official app - they even tweaked their API to enable features for him!

Ike and Justin.TV are a good example of how companies and passionate users can work together to help grow their brands and expand from the web onto the TV. Here’s a look at the app, which is available in the Boxee App Box now.
