Online Spotlight

Besides the program guide and possibly the ability to look up audio CDs on the Web, the most important reason to have your Media Center PC hooked up to the Internet may be the ability to take advantage of Online Spotlight.

Introduced along with Microsoft's first major refresh of the Media Center software in September 2003, Online Spotlight is a showcase for Microsoft partners to offer content and services using Media Center's 10-foot interface. In general, this means that all the offerings in Online Spotlight are accessible using your remote control, and the screens adhere to the basic Media Center design—from the big, bold typeface for titles and descriptions, to the predominantly blue-and-white color scheme, with green highlights to show you what you've selected (see Figure 23.7).
