RSS feeds on your television

Also featured in Make magazine's blog today: an overview of NewsGator's new service, allowing those who use WindowsXP Media Center Edition 2004 to have their NewsGator feeds directly sent to their television. And even cooler, if the feed contains an attached audio or video file, as in the case with podcast or videocast feeds, the app will download the files to your television and let you view/hear them directly from it. Incredibly cool-looking, and may be just the delivery ticket for those underground artists who have been wanting to try an amateur videocast, but couldn't figure out a way to actually deliver it to people. Here's NewsGator's entry page for the service, for those who would like to try it themselves.
