With streaming video growing in popularity and over 56 million consumers currently streaming video or audio each month, MSN offers a high-quality freely available broadband video experience to consumers. Busy consumers can condense programs, watching only the segments that are important to them, as well as combine shows to play back-to-back from multiple sources.
