Samsung (SSNLF.PK) has bought Web streaming set-top/DVR maker Boxee for ~$30M, TechCrunch and Israeli site The Marker report. Boxee, reported to be looking for funding or a buyer last month, made some noise last fall by launching a $99 set-top featuring dual TV tuners, mobile streaming options, and (with a subscription that now goes for $10/month) unlimited cloud DVR storage. But sales have been light in the face of competition from Roku, Apple, and others. Look for Samsung to integrate Boxee's offerings with its TV and mobile lineups - the Galaxy S4 already has some living room-focused features.
