Microsoft Ready To Launch Windows Live Video - Report

Courtesy of TechWeb News

Microsoft Corp. is reportedly a month away from launching a Windows Live Video service where content could be bought and sold much like what's available now through Google Inc.

The new service is expected to be available publicly in April,, a tech site dedicated to Windows Live news, reported Monday.

Microsoft's current video service, MSN Video, offers a variety of news, entertainment and sports from content partners and the Web. The ad-support video is streamed and is not available for sale.

It's not clear what impact a Windows Live Video service would have on MSN Video. Microsoft was not immediately available for comment.

In an interview with, Moz Hussain, a product planner for Microsoft's blogging service MSN Spaces, hinted at a possible Live Video.

Hussain said future integration of Windows Live services and Spaces would allow him to "aggregate things that I'm posting in different places, whether it's a restaurant review, whether its photos from my holiday, whether its my favorite video clips and movies -- all of those things I can aggregate and share with the world."

The new service would be among the latest in a steady rollout of Windows Live products. Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates launched in November the Live initiative to eventually offer all Microsoft software as a Web service.
