Microsoft Learn, the company’s free online training platform is getting a new video channel named Learn TV. Microsoft announced the new content experience yesterday during its Build 2020 developer conference, promising to offer a daily mix of live and pre-recorded content for developers and engineers.

“Learn TV will be a single aggregation point of technical video content and will bring together live and on-demand content across Microsoft properties such as Channel 9 and first party events and hackathons, with casual developer conversations and instructor-led sessions from advocates and engineers,” the company explained. Speaking with ZDNet, a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that “Learn TV will complement Channel 9 – it does not replace or change any of the Channel 9 programming.”

There’s not a lot of content on the website as of this writing, though Learn TV is currently in preview. In addition to the new video channel, the software giant also announced yesterday the general availability of its new Microsoft Q&A website, the new place to get answers to all your questions related to Azure services.
