For some time now, I have been thinking of quitting my job to make time to watch all the TV I want to. Soon, I may not have enough time for even a part-time position: Microsoft has just announced that they will be partnering with Scientific-Atlanta to deliver the long awaited promise of Internet protocol television – MS IPTV.

The new line of Scientific-Atlanta IP set-tops, which will be integrated with the Microsoft(R) TV IPTV Edition software platform, will support advanced codecs such as MPEG-4 Part 10/H.264 and VC-1 and will include standard- definition (SD), high-definition (HD), and whole home SD/HD digital video recorder (DVR) devices, as well as innovative gateway products that can serve an entire home with a single device.
