Offline tweak for WebTV

Microsoft?s WebTV Plus subscribers will soon be able to order products or get free information from interactive ads--when they aren't connect to the Internet. When the software upgrade becomes available in February, credit card information and the viewer?s address will be stored in the hard drive of their set-top box and orders will be placed when the television is off so that viewing isn't disrupted. This feature will also be available on Microsoft?s UltimateTV service.
