Can I view PDF files if I use WebTV?

It appears that the first version of MSN TV (formerly WebTV) is very limited in the amount of usable applications, including Adobe Reader. We have found information stating that Adobe Reader is available within the upgrade of MSN TV, known as ‘MSN TV2’:

“In late 2004, Microsoft introduced MSN TV2. Like the MSN Companion, the “Deuce” is capable of broadband access, and allows the use of a mouse, but it uses the television as an output device, eliminating the need for a computer desk in crowded homes.”

“The new box has Adobe Reader, Windows Media Player, and can access Windows computers on a home network to function as a media player.” Source: wikipedia.org
