Microsoft gunning for Hulu in the UK with MSN Video Player


This will be interesting to see how it makes everything else evolve. I wonder if this will eventually expand into the US for MSN or if they will continue to let Hulu take the reigns. I think it makes sense given Microsoft’s already present connections with companies, but it will be interesting to see if this ever makes it into Media Center. Doubtful huh?


Ars Technica

The MSN Video Player will launch with over 300 hours of content both old and new from BBC Worldwide and All3Media, including shows such as Shameless, Peep Show, League of Gentlemen, Hotel Babylon, The Young Ones, Hustle, Dead Ringers, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Jack Dee Live at the Apollo, and The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Programs will not, however, appear on the MSN service right after airing. Users will have to wait until the online catch-up TV window on broadcasters’ own websites expires, which can range from a week to six months.
