"Well, I am thrilled about this piece of news! Effective today, Zune Marketplace has added video content from PBS, including NOVA, Scientific American Frontiers, Carrier, and more. You can also download specials and mini-series, such as Ken Burns’ acclaimed 2001 miniseries, Jazz. The ten episodes of this series will set you back 8,000 points, or about $100 US. A season of NOVA goes for 2,880 points, or roughly $36."
Not only did we get hit with the Zune 3.1 update today (just a day before the big XBox 360 update tomorrow too!) but Microsoft also added to their video library the PBS collection, according to Harvey Chute over at Zunerama. Every bit of new content, especially in the video section, is only a good thing. I’m not actually familiar with any of the shows but PBS is definitely a big name to bring into the Zune fold!
Actually a few of them sounds really interesting. Anyone have any thoughts on them?
