Microsoft announced a new service today that allows consumers to subscribe to Microsoft Office and Windows Live OneCare in one package. The service is called Microsoft Equipt and will cost $69.99 for one year of service and will be sold through circuit City stores starting in mid-July.

Equipt provides subscribers with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. Also included is Windows Live OneCare all-in-one security and PC management service. When new versions of Office or OneCare are introduced subscribers get the new version for free.
