Microsoft first entered the living room with Ultimate TV way back in 2000 – a year before Apple’s first iPod was announced. Ultimate TV offered consumers a DVR and supporting online services, including 14 days of programming and the ability to record 35 hours of programming. Microsoft’s reach was then thwarted when Echostar acquired DIRECTV.
