The march for the home-entertainment hub continues at a steady pace for Microsoft. Looks like Redmond wants in the
iTunes video subscription space; rumor has
it over at Download Squad
that Microsoft wants more of your money for video downloads. Presumably, they want Apple
to have less of it too.
Microsoft: if you want to succeed at this, consider taking advantage of your WMCE
and Xbox 360 platform and make these downloads
available in standard AND high-definition. You've got the software (and now the hardware in our living rooms) to make
it happen. Trust us, we'll bring our own bandwidth if you can bring us the content. It's becoming clear to all of us
that we need a fatter data pipe to the living
, so we'll take care of that. Will you meet us halfway and bring us the HDTV content we crave so much?
