I am sure by now you have heard of Netflix and Blockbuster. If not, then you can check them out at www.netflix.com and www.blockbuster.com.
They are movie retailers that you pay a monthly fee and can have DVDs shipped to your house or allow you to watch online. Most cable and satellite providers are also getting into the game of providing content online for subscribers. The newest member to the online content provider – Microsoft.
According to PC World's website, Microsoft is planning on releasing streaming TV content onto either an Xbox 360 console or a Windows 7 mobile phone. The plans are still about a year out, says the article, but wouldn’t you love to be one of the first ones to have this service? Just think about it – you can be anywhere there is 3G service and you can be streaming your favorite Simpsons episode right to your phone. Or you can be in your living room watching the latest game on ESPN (already has a deal signed with Microsoft for the service) through your Xbox 360.
So, after starting out with an Operating System that is on the majority of computers around the world, entering the gaming console era with the Xbox, and adding its market share to the mobile phone market, do you think Microsoft will succeed with its latest idea? If it does, you can be sure that IT Support companies like Trigon Technology Group will be looking into it for their clients.
