Wal-Mart Stores announced recently an exclusive deal to sell Brooklyn-based Boxee’s TV set top boxes.  Priced at $98, the device combines free TV broadcast channels, Internet content and a DVR into one system. The devices will be sold at 3,000 stores during the holiday season.

According to Businessweek, the deal makes Boxee a stronger competitor to Roku and Apple TV. Last year, Boxee sold 120,000 devices, compared to Roku’s 1.4 million and Apple TV’s 5.3 million.
