Microsoft has finalized a service that has been in testing which lets PDA, Smartphone and Portable Media Center owners download content from outlets such as MSNBC, Fox Sports, IFILM, DIY and CNBC to their mobile devices.

Some of the content is available for free, but a premium membership unlocks much more at a cost of only $20/year. Subscribers set up a profile online to determine which content they want to receive and it’s automatically downloaded to the Windows Media Player 10 library on their PC. From there it can be synchronized with PDAs, Smartphones and Portable Media Centers. The only requirement is Windows Media Player 10 on both the PC and mobile device.
