Although cable and satellite TV today is rather ubiquitous, there are still many people who do not have either the time or the money for such a luxury. Likewise for people who are often traveling, the tethered subscription does not make much sense.

Luckily, there is now a service to cater to those people too, and it is now on Windows 8.1: Win TV.

Microsoft has always been a fan of charging their Xbox customers a premium to access features including multiplayer gaming, entertainment applications, and Internet Explorer. The company has announced the list of additional new features for Xbox One that will require a Live Gold subscription.

Xbox One will require a paid subscription to access the console’s OneGuide (TV Guide), Game DVR service, Skype, and new SmartMatch service. We aren’t extremely surprised about the news, but now we can confirm what we suspected.

We're not too familiar with the AT&T U-verse cable TV and high speed internet service, but we imagine it's a lot like the more prominent Verizon FiOS.

The good news for U-verse subscribers is that you'll have the ability to stream your media content right from your Mediaroom DVR box (we're assuming that you have one of course). That's because Microsoft and AT&T will have a mobile client on or near launch that will support AT&T's system for Windows Phone 7, which should make many media-hungry folks quite pleased.

Exact details and features are not known at this time as it is expected that AT&T will have their own custom version of the software, setup to their requirements.

That AT&T "premier carrier for WP7" thing is starting to make a little more sense. So who's going to be watching "Jersey Shore" on the way to work in the morning, eh? Eh?

If you're lucky enough to have access to Verizon's pure fiber-optic FiOS cable/internet, then you'll want to go to Windows Marketplace and check out their DVR manager.

In an effort to basically kill off TiVO, the cable companies have been rolling out their own digital video recorder (DVR) services. This freeware app basically lets you access and program your DVR remotely via your WinMo phone. A friend tells you about a show you have to watch? Fire up this bad boy, log in and set your DVR to record it.

Having used Verizon's FiOS for a few years (even played with the DVR two years ago), we like their offerings a lot and its nice to see them give some Windows Mobile love.
