Iomega has become the latest company to integrate the Boxee software into a set-top streaming device.

The Boxee software has long been a free alternative to Windows Media Center for PCs, but has recently started appearing in media streaming devices.

The Iomega TV with Boxee will go head-to-head with the D-Link Boxee Box - which was first unveiled at last year's CES and recently released in the UK.

However, unlike D-Link's effort, Iomega will offer a version of the device that comes with either 1TB or 2TB of onboard storage, turning the Iomega hardware into a media server as well as a streaming device.

In most other respects the two devices are very similar. Like the Boxee, the Iomega TV is powered by an Intel Atom CE4100 processor, offers 1080p output and built-in 802.11n wireless, and comes with a remote control that has a Qwerty keypad on the reverse.

The Iomega TV has a more conservative design than its D-Link rival, and the version that comes with built-in storage is also much larger - roughly the same size as a chunky hardback book.

The Iomega TV with Boxee will be launched worldwide in February. The storage-free version will cost $230 in the US, while the 1TB version will retail at $300 and the 2TB at $350.
