We the undersigned believe enabling the Real Audio 'HTTP--True Speech' Streaming protocol, used by the majority of Real Audio Websites on the Internet, would alleviate the current dearth of musical entertainment choices for MSNTV subscribers.

Current Situation:
REAL AUDIO--Not Supported as offered by the majority of RA sites.
INTERNET RADIO--The language & players used by most Internet Radio Stations are not supported by MSNTV. Only a very few work with the MSNTV boxes.
MP3 & WAV: Any MP3 or WAV greater than 132kb will only play for 1minute & 10 seconds.
WMA: Not supported
MIDI & MOD: Supported

a) Per month about $2,000,000 (2 million dollars) gross income is generated for Microsoft by MSNTV subscribers --approximately 100,000 subscribers paying an average of $20 a month.
b) The Streaming of Real Audio functions perfectly with the MSNTV box--thus circumventing the box's difficulty dealing with large file sizes.
c) Microsoft technical expertise is quite capable of enabling the HTTP protocal & MSNTV subscribers have already paid enough to foot the bill. LOL

    i think we are not getting our share of real audio. it's not like we can copy it or anything, so why can't we just enjoy listening? that's not too much to ask for the monthly premium we pay.

    Improvements are needed for those of us who are visually impaired . I also think all standard audio formats should be enabled.

    I am in total agreement with this petition. I want to be able to put midi's and also sigs on my new msntv 2 unit. Not being able to do so to me is going backwards and I think it is a disgrace in MSN's technology dept. Also the eBay issue is a mess now not

    You people are silly. MSNTV didn't take anything away from you. MSNTV still has REAL AUDIO, but the leeches who stole pnm strips/files from MTV/SONICNET can't steal it anymore, thus the lack of audio choices. I'm afraid this petition is without merit. Go

    If you are going to continue to take things away from us webbies, then I suggest you lower the monthly subscription fee. For $24.95 a month, I expect more than what I'm getting for that price!!!
