Microsoft Zune Plays Recorded TV from Windows Media Center

Microsoft launched its new line of Zune media players, featuring a touch-sensitive button for navigating on the device, as well as wireless sync, a feature that allows Zune devices to automatically sync over the device owner's home wireless network when it is connected to an AC adaptor, in a dock or speaker dock accessory.

The Zune software will now automatically import broadcast content recorded on Microsoft Windows Media Center for Windows Vista Home Premium or Ultimate.

Microsoft also plans to offer a selection of more than 1 million digital rights management (DRM)-free MP3s in the updated version of Zune Marketplace.
