Microsoft revealed its new MSN UK design on Tuesday.

The software maker is planning to re-launch its MSN UK page on November 17 with a brand new look and more content. The new design will see the site focus on real-time coverage and more exclusive content. The project is being headed by Pete Clifton, executive producer for MSN. Clifton is the former BBC editor who helped build the BBC News site during his 15 years at the BBC. Clifton was made redundant from the BBC earlier this year and Microsoft hired him as Peter Bale’s replacement.

“Overall, this is about clearer navigation, bolder promotion of our best content, a commitment to real-time coverage, and prominent positions for our key channels further down the page,” explained Clifton in a blog post on Tuesday. “The navigation is much clearer and less cluttered on the new site, giving you a clear view of our priority areas of coverage.” Microsoft has kept the direct links to Hotmail and Messenger at the top of the page. The MSN UK homepage will also feature a news ticker, highlighting breaking news and items of importance. The page will also feature a real-time widget of news in the sidebar.

“We have a busy couple of days getting the site ready to go live, and no doubt there will be a few heart-stopping moments in the meantime,” 
said Clifton. 
“Amid all that, I am really looking forward to your feedback,” 
he added. Microsoft is planning to roll out the MSN UK changes on November 17.
