The Daily Button – December 15th, 2007

The question before you is.. Would you pay a little extra per month if your Cable Co. offered a Media Center setup? I am not thinking a stout box that I might build but a TiVo’esque form factor with the Media Center UI and network connectivty that allows streaming of your pictures, music and video files. I am rather surprised that MS has not persued this type of relationship with a Cable or Sat Co.
