DT interactive TV delay because of Microsoft?

Last week we reported that the initial launch of Deutsche Telekom's IPTV service would not offer any interactive features, but according to reports last week, DT would not comment on whether Microsoft's past problems with software bugs had been the cause this time around. Now, reports circling the Internet claim that was in fact the case, and Microsoft is the supposed culprit once again. Apparently, the companies have halted the interactive features for six months to integrate systems and get the bugs out of Microsoft's IPTV software and the network itself.
