new idea: "Bing TV" channels in Xbox .....Bing News vs CNN, etc.
had a new idea earlier today:
I was using my windows phone and wondered, what if Bing News, Bing Finance, Bing Sports, and Bing Weather were all channels on tv?take it a step further, and make them channels on Xbox One via Xbox Live.
Benefits of Bing TV channels:
-giving people incentive to subscribe to xbox live and buy an xbox one
-giving people an innovative alternative to CNN, weather channel, CNBC, and ESPN, for cord cutters especially.
-getting the bing brand name out there.
-Microsoft would expand its consumer advertising division to TV commercials, opening a new line of revenue.
-doing it all with prior experience (MSNBC was a channel previously owned by Microsoft).
Microsoft can have these 4 main channels as channels on xbox, giving people a reason to "cut the cord" and get an xbox live subscription instead.
Microsoft has history and knowledge in owning their own cable channel with MSNBC:
Microsoft invested $220 million for a 50% share of the cable network, while MSNBC and Microsoft would share the cost of a $200 million newsroom in Redmond, Washington for msnbc.com. NBC supplied the channel space that was occupied by the 18-month-old America's Talking network. Its name is a combination of "MSN" and "NBC".
