New Microsoft Mediaroom Anytime
January 8, 2009
Microsoft has unveiled Mediaroom Anytime, a new feature set for the Microsoft Mediaroom multimedia and IPTV platform that allows viewers to watch TV on their own time. The Mediaroom Anytime features take time-shifted TV to the next level, enabling viewers to access previously aired shows directly from the Interactive Program Guide or immediately restart currently airing shows without any preplanning or prior DVR recording. In addition, Microsoft announced that the Mediaroom platform has reached nearly 2.5 million subscriber homes worldwide, an increase of more than 1.5 million new connections in the past year alone.
