Microsoft on the TV

Microsoft has long been at it trying to get digital content into your living room. It all started when they acquired WebTV in 1996. Since then they have moved from set-top-boxes to OS software to software for set-top-boxes. Out of any company out there they have put worth a great effort trying to get this to work. The list of products is below in the order they came out.

1. WebTV
2. UntimateTV
3. Windows Media Center
4. Microsoft TV fondation edition
5. MSN TV 2
6. Xbox live video marketplace
7. Microsoft Mediaroom

There have also been the extenders. The new extenders based on new software code named Pica will be available later this year, according to rumors. This isn’t the end of Microsoft gearing products and services towards the living room.

With all of these services it is natural for these products to work together. This post goes into more detail about integrating the products together and what the future has in store.

I for one am looking forward to whats to come.
