Mike aggregated some wonderful news about a new feature coming to Xbox 360 on November 22nd: video on demand. HD content will be available for free and for pay to download direct to your hard drive-equipped Xbox 360.
My first thought? SWEET! Living in Ireland has a lot of upside but the downside is no NetFlix and no TiVo. This service is the answer to a huge need.
Your 360 is now a great way to watch movies!
Well… it would be the answer to my need if it weren’t for the fact that the service will be for US Xboxes only. I suppose it comes as no surprise given that international copyright law is a deep murky pool… filled with hungry sharks… and with little floaty things edged with razor blades… and all the ladders out are greased… and electrified.
At any rate, Xbox owners back in America: congratulations… [scowl grumble grumble]
One reply on “HD TV and Movies on demand? Thank you Xbox 360… almost”
Actually there are a couple equivalents to Netflix over here, including MovieStar and ScreenClick.
I’ve never tried either, so I don’t know how great their selection or service is.
