With the dissolution of the Microsoft Edge based eBook store refunds have been issued to customers who bought content in the store. While this refund could be spend in a variety of ways one loyal customer decided to spend his entire refund and some in the Movies and TV section of the Microsoft Store.
While this behavior might seem unadvisable the user, who wanted to remain nameless, said they just love all things Microsoft and don’t mind taking risks. The eBook store seemed like a quick experiment and not something was investing in for the long haul. This didn’t stop dozens of Windows users from spending tens of dollars on DRM locked books.
The Movies and TV portion of the store is more of a sure bet. The Movies and TV app is separate from a core experience like web browsing. Much like how Groove was insulated from being shut down because it was a cross-platform experience with mass appeal.
