The move from Microsoft follows similar efforts from internet-based outlets including Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon that have already brought original content to their respective services. Xbox Entertainment Studios, the branch responsible for the new content, has already locked down some big name Hollywood talent to develop its original programming
The show, Amazon’s first attempt at original programming, could create additional momentum for change in the concept of television.

I’m consistently underwhelmed by every new TV-related device or tech I see. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but when I read about Chromecast, like any other tech like this I think, “why?” Why would I buy something extra when the TV set I have is good enough? Something special will arrive and wow us all one day. But this isn’t it.
