Cable firms to test Microsoft TV software

Cable firms to test Microsoft TV software "The nation's two largest cable operators will test Microsoft Corp.'s digital television software with some of their subscribers under agreements to be announced today.
Although limited in scope, the trials by Comcast Cable and Time Warner Cable could serve as a beachhead for Microsoft TV as it attempts to take on the TV Guide Interactive software that dominates the digital-cable market. Microsoft hopes the trials will lead to broader agreements with the companies and others."
