I just saw this tasty morsel from the press release at CES about Billg’ keynote:
“Gates also announced a multiyear partnership with satellite TV provider DirecTV Group Inc. to get the company's satellite video directly onto Media Center-based devices.”
So, there is hope to get off Comcast and go back to DirecTV! I am just wondering how they can accomplish this without the existence of a “cable card” type device for satellite providers. Guess we will find out soon, eh?
