MSN TV 2.0 Launched
Via eHomeUpgrade, Microsoft's MSN TV 2.0 officially launched. Microsoft describes it as an Internet and media player and it can stream some "premium content" from the Internet, as well as from another PC. It's MSRP is $199, but there is a monthly subscription charge as well.
I guess if I squint the right way, I can see it useful for people who don't already have a computer or connection to the Internet, but for someone who already has broadband, I'm not sure why I'd want to shell out $10 a month to use this thing. If they added a tuner card and MCE, that would be one thing, but it doesn't seem like there is much there there.
