The Microsoft Network (MSN) lost one of its investors last week when Tele-Communications pulled the $125 million (u78 million) investment it made in the service back in 1994.
The money will be given back to TCI according to Microsoft officials, because the two companies have changed their Internet strategies since the launch of MSN in August last year. TCI now owns several cable operators as well as being a principle investor in At Home, a high-speed data transmission company.
There doesn't seem to be any bad blood between the two giants. Currently they are discussing several distribution and programming projects including video-on-demand and possibly Internet services.
