Video: Microsoft switches up its streaming game

The following video is part of our “Motley Fool Conversations” series, in which technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn discuss topics around the investing world.

Nearly every major consumer tech company is involved in the rise of streaming video in one way or another. Internet companies Amazon.com and Google both are both aggressively building out their streaming offering to challenge Nexflix‘s dominance. At the same time, we see service providers such as Verizon and Comcast leveraging their distribution deals to bring more content online as well. However, Microsoft has a strategy all its own, using its Xbox Live services as a kind of pseudo-cable box. Recently, Microsoft announced some major changes in its strategy for Xbox. Will this move help or hurt Mr. Softy’s place in this big-time growth opportunity? Watch the video to find out.
