Boxee Box may be getting a live TV dongle

The clever little cube may soon become a lot smarter 

D-Link's Boxee Box was worthy enough to be nominated in the 2011 Stuff Awards and – if the rumours are true – it looks set to become even more useful, with whisperings of a live TV dongle echoing in the wings.

Gigaom managed to get their hands on an unreleased Boxee build which has a menu option instructing the user to connect a live TV USB dongle. If it's true, it'll take the hassle out of constantly switching between live and on-demand TV sources.

There’s no official word from Boxee as of yet, but we’re hoping the new functionality will drop in time for our Christmas wish list…
