Adobe Updates Media Player, Signs Content Deal With Sony And CBS
Adobe's last push to further promote its Media Player is an updated interface, plus two content deals signed with Sony and CBS.

The company either plans to have the two movies as the star features of the deal (so do expect less interesting titles to be unveiled later on) or is waiting to see just how the public responds and enhance its offer if necessary. In addition, Sony also promised to content from its online television network Crackle.
CBS has also signed on with Adobe and announced it will be offering 48 Hours and The Love Boat for starters. Needless to say, that's also a not very inspiring offer.
With these two deals in its pocket, Adobe claims its Media Player will feature around 25,000 video clips, including about 600 television shows.
The Abode Media Player was launched in April and is currently available on Windows or Mac OS X. The new update, the company claims, features a new home screen and easier navigation.
