Hi All,

This is my first release to the Boxee Community.

The Application allows you to watch, in English or French, the Live France 24 Channel as well as browsing all the news by category. By Clicking on the news, Boxee should prompt you if you want to watch the video version if available.

Let me know what you think of it and of course comments and feature requests welcome.

My repository is located at: http://www.kitesurfing.ie/boxeerepo

I will post a YouTube tutorial on how to use the application later on.

Enjoy.

Alexis

Ok I have updated the app in the repository.
Changes:
- New background (easier to read on ATV)
- Increased font of News Description (easier to read on ATV)

Known Issues:
- Watch Live/Regardez en direct always shows the Busy Wheel while playing the video (Only happens on ATV happens to anybody else ?)
- News with videos doesn't get flagged as having a video that can be played.
