In France, check out the France Télévisions site where you can watch up to 9 live streams with full DVR and time-shifting features thanks to the Microsoft Silverlight Media Framework, which allows content owners and broadcasters to create advanced media players with almost no coding. If you have a DTS Neural Audio-equipped receiver, you can even experience 5.1 surround sound!
