Microsoft unveils new VOD service

Microsoft is set to launch its UK VOD service this week. The new MSN Video Player, which has been in testing phase since last summer, features around 300 hours of programming from BBC Worldwide and All3Media.
Microsoft has increased the service's total hours of content to 1,000 in the last few months following deals with Shed Media, RDF Media and the Digital Rights Group. Users will be able to watch full-length TV shows, films, trailers, news and clips on the new player.
