I've been using boxee for the past few years and cannot wait to get the boxee box for my big screen downstairs. The only thing missing is apple airplay compatiblity.

Does anyone know if this a feature that can be added through a software update on the boxee, or does it requires specialized hardware and/or sanctioning from apple? And if it is able to be added, will it be?

I'm pretty sure they would have to pay apple some sort of licensing fee to use airplay. Since the boxee is a competitor to the apple tv, I don't see airplay coming to the boxee. Remember when apple started to cry when the palm pre was syncing with iTunes? It's kind of the same idea I guess...
