If two or more of the following apply to you: a fan of Pandora's recommendation engine, loves free videos from the Internet, and use Boxee on a daily basis, then it's a no-brainer that you should check out Redux, an aggregator of free web videos based on your preferences and interests, now with its very own app for the Boxee media center.
Like Pandora, Redux offers channels based on search terms, genres, celebrities, and almost any other criteria you can think of that relates to video. The end goal is to eliminate hours of endless Web searching and push video content that's directly catered towards your taste, nothing else.
And while the web interface is awesome and all, the true experience lies in its integration with Boxee, which we think - so long as it's not your work laptop that's powering Boxee - is the perfect marriage of a service like Redux with a ubiquitous media server experience.
Even Boxee's CEO Avner Ronen loves it: "I love Redux on Boxee," he says. " says Boxee CEO. "It takes the pressure off me to decide exactly what I want to watch, and gives me channels of content around some of my favorite subjects like WTF videos or great music. Redux is pushing the limits of the space and really experimenting with what TV could be."
In a way, Redux itself is like a Boxee within a Boxee, allowing users to readily comment, favorite, and interact with media they see. We wouldn't be too surprised to see the two working together in the near future. So, if you're tired of mindlessly poking around the Internet without finding what you're looking for, check out Redux and let them do the poking around for you.
