Microsoft launches video download service

Microsoft has launched a video download service for handheld devices that use the Windows Mobile video streaming protocol.

Owners of Portable Media Centers, smart phones and pocket computers will be able to download daily programs and other video content from MSNBC.com, Food Network, FOX Sports, IFilm and other content providers.

About 20 Microsoft content partners, including CinemaNow, MTV, Napster and TiVo, have agreed to make video formatted for devices using Windows Mobile.

Subscribers will be able to select content such as sports clips, news headlines and music videos from the MSN Video Downloads Web site. Some content can also be downloaded to PCs running Windows XP. The service is available in the United States for an annual subscription of $19.95. Some free content is also available without a paid membership.
