NewsGator Technologies has launched NewsGator Media Center Edition, which is designed to allow user to read syndicated content feeds on their TV with Windows XP Media Center Edition. Both text and multimedia content is supported, with an interface designed to be used with a remote control from across the room. NewsGator Media Center Edition shows information that has not already been viewed on another device by synchronizing user subscriptions with NewsGator Online Services. Users see visual cues when a feed contains multimedia content then view this content using the remote control. There are a number of featured feeds for the launch, including a video feed from Microsoft.

NewsGator Online Services also includes other three content reader editions, which allow users to read content they have subscribed to from Web browsers (with Web Edition), email clients (with POP Edition), and from a mobile wireless device (with Mobile Edition). The service also provides exclusive, subscriber-only content to its subscribers, as well as the ability to search for content that matches a specific keyword or URL, and return that content in a feed. NewsGator Media Center Edition is included with the NewsGator Online Services subscription service, and is available immediately. Pricing starts at $5.95/month per user.
