Any plans to add more Canada content to Boxee.

Global TV is now playing "HD" content and Rogers has released Rogers OnDemand.

I'm not a programmer but maybe there is something I can do to help any American programmers (i.e. Access to a Canadian Proxy for IPs)

Feel free to message me.

We need Canadian content!! Or content that is available to Canadians if you plan on selling the box here.
These 2 sites are a great start.

Yes, I would buy this, if I was in the states, but I'm in Canada, so Pandora, Hulu,, basically everything good, and all the main reason for buying this are no good to me here in Canada. Which is stupid and sux.

Not really D-links fault, but if they want to sell to Canada they should really fight for Canadians on this one, or figure out another way to get us enough GOOD content to make it worth while.

I seen they have the CBC, but lets face it, most actual canadian content sux...

All our best actors and actresses and well lets face it, all talent in ANYTHING, go to the states. Then we arn't even aloud to watch our own fellow Canadians, because they are on an American network... how far is that. I mean, we get the content on our TV's, why can't we get it on our computers, or in this case on our TV's through the internet. I'm watching it on the same freaking device in the end, am I not (my TV). What's the big deal...

I use a VPN service to get a US IP. Costs me less than $7 a month and full access to everything our US friends have.

But - I too would like to see Canadian feeds on Boxee.

Related question to the Developers: I get free access to Rogers Internet TV since I'm a Rogers cell phone customer - how do I get that content to run (easily) thru Boxee?? I'm guessing this is essentially the same issue.

Typically to get other internet-based content, someone would need to develop an app; unless at some point down the road Boxee integrates content from Rogers directly into Boxee like they do with Hulu, etc.

Which service are you using? I tried witopia last year, but had some issues with Hulu.

If you can read French, I highly recommend checking this website (http://www.vpnaddict.com/). Otherwise, I receommend you using Arethusa (http://s6n.org/arethusa/) as a US VPN (with openVPN which is the safest method).
It costs about 7$CAD (5€), doesn't log anything, has several servers in various countries (including USA), allows P2P, can be installed directly on your router, etc.

I use it on a daily basis (it is installed on my router), and works perfectly with Hulu.
About speed it works very fine. About 95% (the loss is due to the VPN system itself, and not because of the VPN server that limits my bandwidth) percent of my regular speed on dedicated 10mbts line.

Thanks. I was testing s6n.org last night and it works perfect.
