Scoble on the new MSN TV

For those who remember it, WebTV wasn’t THAT bad a service but I have to question why they are trying to re-launch it this way. Scoble says he’s getting a look at it tomorrow and the Engadget review talks it up in a great way but the screen shots and the like look just like the old WebTV. Sure, it’s got Ethernet now but how many years did we have to wait for that? (our local cable company has been offering Interactive TV based on Web/MSN TV for two years now)

Why not just make an X-Box add-on that does exactly this? (the prices are the same and it might be a better way of getting GM+GP (grandma+grandpa) to spend time with their grandkids)
