Microsoft licenses "The Guild" for video marketplace


Reuters is reporting that the second season of popular web series, "The Guild," will be appearing exclusively on Microsoft's Independent Video channel. Sponsored by Sprint, it will be one of two additions to the new section of the Video Marketplace which will be free to watch. After four weeks of exclusivity on Xbox 360, Zune and MSN, the episodes will be viewable on The Guild website.

For those unaware, "The Guild" focuses on the lives of six MMO-addicts as they attempt to cope with comical problems in the real world which they play the game to escape. It's first season attracted over nine million views on YouTube and turned writer/creator/star of the series, Felicia Day, into the object of many a geek's desire. The show also features "The Legend of Neil" creator, Sandeep Parikh.

I became interested in The Guild as a result Day's performance in "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," well after the first season concluded. It quickly became one of my favorite web-based shows and I'm really glad to see it achieve some level of commercial success. If you haven't watched it yet, I highly recommend you give it a look. To make it easy on you, I've even tossed in the first episode after the jump.
