Microsoft Reportedly Ready To Launch Windows Live Video

Microsoft Corp. is reportedly a month away from launching a Windows Live Video service where content could be bought and sold much like what's available now through Google Inc.

The new service is expected to be available publicly in April, LiveSide.net, a tech site dedicated to Windows Live news, reported Monday.

Microsoft's current video service, MSN Video, offers a variety of news, entertainment and sports from content partners and the Web. The ad-support video is streamed and is not available for sale.

It's not clear what impact a Windows Live Video service would have on MSN Video. Microsoft was not immediately available for comment.

In an interview with LiveSide.net, Moz Hussain, a product planner for Microsoft's blogging service MSN Spaces, hinted at a possible Live Video.
