Submission + - Microsoft to start own TV service on Xbox 360 (

tekgoblin writes: It seems that Microsoft may be in talks with media companies to license TV shows and movies for a new streaming service. With the addition of ESPN to the Xbox 360 over Xbox Live Microsoft may be in a position to do the same for different content providers and charge a subscription fee for them separately. The idea is to better personalize content and only pay for what you want to watch instead of paying cable companies for all the channels you don't watch. Microsoft is looking into duplicating what they have done with ESPN to include channels such as Showtime or HBO and possibly Disney.

Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
