KVH Industries Inc. and Microsoft Corp. rolled out an agreement at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to bring the MSN TV service to consumers traveling in cars, trucks, RVs and boats throughout the United States.

KVH�s Mobile Internet Receiver with MSN TV service, a customized version of the MSN TV 2 Internet & Media Player, will provide in-motion access to web browsing, Microsoft Windows Media Player, MSN Mail and MSN Messenger, digital photo viewing, MSN Video, and MSN Radio with two-way connections made possible by broadband EVDO cellular services.

Middletown, R.I.-based KVH�s Mobile Internet Receiver with MSN TV service will also include wi-fi output to provide Internet connectivity to a wide range of wi-fi-enabled products.

Financial details of the agreement were not released.

The high-speed connection, offered by an EVDO (Evolution Data Optimized) cellular data modem that KVH is integrating into the Mobile Internet Receiver, will use existing broadband data services offered by several major cellular companies. Connection speeds for EVDO service are similar to residential DSL broadband service, with a maximum speed of 2.4 Mbps and typical speeds of 400 Kbps to 700 Kbps.

By using EVDO services for connectivity along with built-in wi-fi output, passengers will be able to connect to other Internet services using wi-fi-enabled laptop computers, PDAs and other devices using an Internet browser, e-mail application or instant messaging tool.

The hardware and service are expected to be available for purchase in mid-2006, with a price structure yet to be determined.
