MSN TV 2
If you've been considering purchasing a media adapter or even a Windows media extender, the MSN TV 2 Internet and Media Player (see Figure 8) might be a better alternative to streaming your favorite digital content from your networked home computers. The MSN TV 2 is loaded with Windows Media Player for TV, Internet Explorer 6 technology, and Windows Media Connect (allows streaming and playback of Windows Media protected audio/video files); this adapter is hands-down the best choice, with the most options and flexibility, out of all the media adapters to date.
According to Microsoft, MSN TV 2 "brings premium MSN content, PC-stored digital media, and email to TV for a truly integrated Internet and media experience." MSN TV 2 is a broadband home-network-enabled device manufactured by Thomson under the RCA brand. It includes wireless keyboard and remote control ($199.95 plus subscription fee). See Microsoft's press release for all the details.
