Zune Marketplace adds TV shows, other stuff
Microsoft released an updated version of its iTunes competitor today. The new Zune Marketplace adds TV downloads and a bunch of new music features. Here are some of the highlights:
The desktop application is integrated with the "Zune Community," allowing users to send messages and share their collections with friends
Ability to drag and drop a friend's Zune Card onto your portable media player
Tools for editing meta data
But it's probably the new TV store that's going to steal the show. Microsoft says more than 800 episodes are availabe as of today, with titles including South Park, The Office, Heroes, 30 Rock, SpongeBob, Ghost in the Shell, Battletar Galactica, and Robot Chicken. Programs will cost you $2 per episode. There's no word on if and when we'll see movies on the Zune Marketplace.
