[JoongAng Ilbo , Business, Industry, October 2 2008] MSN Video to enter crowded pool

The world’s two IT giants are likely to have a bout on Korean soil over the video services and online advertising market as the local unit of U.S. software giant Microsoft is expected to officially launch a Korean-language version of its Internet video-streaming service.

Microsoft currently provides a beta test version of its MSN Video service in Korean, which features various content from music video to movie and news clips.

“The Web site is being revamped at the moment. We are also trimming some of the language [from English into Korean]. The full version of MSN Video will be unveiled soon, but it’s hard to say when the official launch day will be,” said an official of Microsoft Korea.
