(REUTERS) - Samsung Electronics has acquired TV digital recording device company Boxee, the South Korean manufacturer said on Wednesday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Boxee is a DVR that stores content in the cloud and lets viewers watch recordings anywhere without space constraints.

Most DVRs allow for a limited number of recordings before the user has to delete shows to make room for others.
