Rumors appeared on the web, according to which, the company Microsoft plans to compete Apple и Google in the creation of set-top boxes for working with TV content broadcast via the Internet. More on this will be announced at CES.
According to the authors of the rumors, the company has everything ready for this. After all, she does not even have to create a new specialized device (although the possibility of such a device in the future is not excluded). After all Microsoft may well use the popular game console Xbox 360. Yes, this device is much more expensive than the same Apple TV. But by acquiring Xbox, the consumer receives a much more advanced device, whose activities are not limited to playing TV content.
At Microsoft there is an online store Zune Marketplacewhere consumers have the opportunity to purchase various multimedia content. Including such as full-length and documentary films, as well as various TV shows. They can be bought or rented. Thus, the matter remains for a few and Microsoft may well try himself in a new incarnation.
