Microsoft (MSFT) intends to this week provide hints about exclusive programming for the Xbox, with shows set to include a series from Steven Spielberg based on the videogame "Halo."

Another expected program is "Every Street United," a documentary-style series about soccer that will start in time for the World Cup in June.

However, Microsoft faces a crowded field in which Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and Yahoo are producing original content for the Internet.
