In its bid to broaden the appeal of Windows Media Center, Microsoft is launching a new sports channel that will offer a range of sports coverage, including replays of NCAA basketball tournament games. WMC has yet to go mainstream and is still primarily used by hardcore techies. Microsoft is out to change that by making the WMC easier to use, as well as acquiring rights to premium video content. Microsoft has licensed the rights to sports content from Fox Sports, CBSSports.com (owned by CBS, parent company of CNET News), and MSNBC.com. The new sports channel goes live Thursday and is available in Windows Vista Home, Premium, and Ultimate. The new channel will only be available in the United States. The replays of the NCAA tournament games--only marquee match-ups from the first two rounds and then every game after that--will replay within hours of the live action and be "condensed versions." That means you don't have to sit through timeouts, ball retrieval, or halftime. WMC will also offer clips of game highlights and post-game interviews.
