I ought to point out that this was written by a shill (Rob Enderle).

Microsoft Xbox to Join the Battle for Video Downloading

,----[ Quote ]
| Editors' Note: November 10, 2006, Friday An article in Business
| Day on Tuesday described a decision by Microsoft to offer
| movies and episodes of television shows for downloading
| through its Xbox Live online service in the United States.
| The article quoted Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the
| Enderle Group, discussing the features that set Xbox Live
| service apart and its position in the market.
| But the article did not note that Mr. Enderle had Microsoft
| as a client, a fact later pointed out by a reader. Mr. Enderle does
| consulting work for several of Microsoft's product groups, though
| not for the one developing the Xbox; still, had The Times known
| of Mr. Enderle's work for Microsoft, it would not have sought
| out his opinion on the product.
