From the Zunerama blog:
I was doing some spelunking through some Zune software executables this weekend, and stumbled across some interesting internal code in ZuneMarketplace.dll.
The DLL's resource area contains text strings - apparently unused at present - for "MTV on Zune", "VH1 on Zune", and "CMT on Zune", along with references to related help text. (You can click on the graphic for a shot of the full screen grab.)
Now all this, of course, is distinctly reminiscent of URGE - the music offering integrated into Windows Media Player 11. With URGE, Microsoft partnered up with MTV, VH1, and CMT for music downloads and for related content such as playlists and recommendations.
Given the URGE partnership, it seems that music videos from MTV et al would be a natural offering for the much-anticipated video portion of Zune Marketplace.
So I'm wondering... is this Marketplace DLL snippet just a vestige from WMP 11 and its URGE integration... that accidentally got carried over into the internals of Zune software?
Or is this a sign of things to come in Zune Marketplace?
