Microsoft is working with Cisco on developing the media servers and I think they will be offering their own STB and programming as well. Check out their service HERE.

Microsoft's idea of marketing IPTV is to give the consumer everything they need at their TV. A complete source for entertainment if you will. Integrating their IPTV service with XBOX, online social networks, and offering HD programming in both live and VOD formats, all that can be recorded on the HD DVR feature.
