Microsoft And SBC Bringing Internet TV

Like VOIP? How about TV-IP? Microsoft and SBC Communications Inc. have announced a ten year, $400 million deal to deliver TV over high-speed internet connections. Microsoft's Internet Protocol Televsion software will run over SBC fiber optic lines. The plan is to use the Internet to defeat and provide an alternative to the cable monopolies. Sounds like a great plan. I can't wait to hear more.

Some more info:
The initial phase of the plan to replace copper cables with fiber is slated to cost $4 billion and make IP-based TV and speedier Internet access available to 18 million of SBC's customers by the end of 2007.
