MSN TV, formerly known as WebTV, is a bundled thin client and online service which is closing on September 30, 2013. Microsoft offers a bunch of migration options for MSN TV users, though it does not appear that an easy transition route will be offered for home pages. Many of these date back to the late 1990s, and all will be lost.

- List of URLs from a 2009-ish dump of the Open Directory Project, some may no longer work
- List of URLs scraped from a Twitter search. Oddly, the original URLs before filtering were in a weird format; for example, http://community-2.webtv.net/@HH!17!BF!62DA2CCF370F/TvFoutreach/COUNTDOWNTO666/ which is the same as http://community-2.webtv.net/TvFoutreach/COUNTDOWNTO666/
