Yeah, I saw that but I wasn't sure how Netvision worked. If it was
doing an automated crawl, or if it was browsing in real time like a
user would. They do allow 3rd party apps, etc, as long as they don't
cause a higher load than a normal user would. Also Clicker has made an
official App for Boxee, so I don't think they would be adverse to what
Netvision would be doing with it, as long as it was browsing like a
normal user would and as long as it isn't downloading content for
offline use. I understand that this all hangs on the interpretation of
their words and their meaning of them. I just wanted to check because
it seems like a nice central way to get to everything else.
