Being Alpha (not stable and not completely tested ), it is unlikely to be in the default installation repositories; use at your own risk; xorg/desktop, video issues may arise. ... w-you-away
    Boxee alpha is astoundingly stable and smooth
Since it is Alpha software, its stability and other issues will be in question..

In a terminal or use synaptic
--You will have to
  • add that repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list
  • sudo apt-get update
    --then try the install..
