Note: Throughout this post, I’ll refer to Microsoft® Silverlight™ Streaming by Windows Live™ simply as “SLS”.

As per my previous post about the SLS service going away now that the Windows Azure platform is available commercially, we are entering Stage 2 of the SLS grandfathering phase.

The SLS home page has been overhauled this afternoon to provide comprehensive instructions on how to retrieve your SLS content and store it in Windows Azure.

It also confirms the deadline by which this content has to be removed from SLS before it becomes unavailable: January 31st, 2010. Until that time, the SLS admin web site will remain fully functional.
