On Tuesday at the SoHo House in Hollywood, Microsoft revealed that its Bing search engine now has a new section that lets online users view episodes from TV shows, get entertainment information such as movie times and listen to music without having to click to another page, reports MediaPost.
Bing is focusing on entertainment, said Yusuf Mehdi, senior vice president of Microsoft’s online audience business. Mehdi did a demonstration for attendees. He said the new Bing site features more than 1,500 TV shows and thousands of individual episodes.
"About 30% of people have watched a full-length episode of television on their laptop," he said, adding that Bing’s new feature will make it easier.
