Boxee officially announced the Live TV stick on Wednesday, a $49 USB dongle that will allow users to watch ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC in HD without a monthly contract — provided you’re in an area with broadcast coverage. You’ll need to own one of the company’s $179 Boxee Box set top boxes in order to take advantage of the Live TV stick, which means it won’t work on your PC or Mac. We’re big fans of the Boxee Box here at BGR and we’re definitely excited to check out the Live TV stick when it hits store shelves in January. If you’re overeager, you can pre-order a unit now. A few screen shots of the Live TV user interface follow after the break.
