Default Microsoft Extenders and Internet TV

Microsoft has revealed details about its new ‘Extenders’ for Microsoft Windows Media Centre. These devices, which are expected to be available for purchase before the end of the year, will allow easy access to premium cable, high-definition TV, popular video formats including DivX, music, paid movies, photos from any TV in the house, with a wired or wireless network connection.

Microsoft has also launched a beta test of Windows Media Centre Internet TV, which will offer more than 100 hours of ad-supported entertainment from MSN Video, including full-length shows, music concerts and movie trailers.

I just use an Xbox 360. It's the same thing (Vista/HD support) except it plays games as well. You can even stream an MPEG PS from your satellite card to it In fact, with a custom ASX, you can already watch Internet TV. You could on the older extenders, as well. I dunno, I suppose this new feature is for idiots.
