MSN Direct Scores Home Run With 2004 Professional Baseball

Microsoft Corp. today added professional baseball season content for 2004 to MSN® Direct's Sports Channel so subscribers can keep tabs on their favorite pastime while on the go. Microsoft also added three new channels to MSN Direct that will allow subscribers to track their astrological future, discover whether those lucky lottery numbers finally have paid off, and even build their vocabulary, simply by glancing at their wrist. On top of the additional content, Microsoft is giving all yearly subscribers a special free offer of three bonus months of MSN Direct service.*

"Smart Watches are all about letting people choose exactly what they want to see on their wrists," said Eric Lang, general manager of the Smart Personal Objects Technology (SPOT) initiative at Microsoft. "The combination of the expanded sports content with professional baseball and these new channels gives our subscribers even more information and options, and they can expect continued content enhancements and selections in the future." The new channels complement existing MSN Direct channels, which offer news, stocks, weather and sports information, personal messages and reminders of calendar appointments, and represent the second major expansion of the MSN Direct service since its launch in early January.
