MSN TV - Computer Definition
(MicroSoft Network TV) A pioneer Internet TV service from Microsoft. Existing subscribers are supported, but Microsoft no longer sells the MSN TV hardware. Developed in 1996 by WebTV and acquired by Microsoft in 1997, it originally used an analog modem and telephone line to deliver the Web and e-mail to the TV set. In 2004, MSN TV 2 debuted for high-speed Internet connections and provides audio and video streaming to the TV from the user's PC or the Internet. See Internet TV and AOLTV.
