Microsoft, BT Team on MSN,

Microsoft, BT Team on MSN, Broadband: Microsoft’s MSN 8 browser and BT’s broadband access, that’s the deal. MSN 8 is Microsoft’s subscription-based product with enhanced Web-browsing features. Microsoft is hoping MSN 8 will bring its loss-making Internet business unit into the black.

MSN 8, which is set to launch in the United Kingdom on Tuesday, is priced at about $11 (6.99 pounds) per month. BT broadband customers already pay about $47 per month for their high- speed access.
