    Nothing for argentina. This is not a big update, Xbox is losing market here and Sony it just sells beacuse of advertising. No microsoft entertainment or videogames distribution here.😦

    Nothing available for Portugal. Amazing. Who would have thought we have “XBox Live”. I won’t be surprised when the list of countries for Youtube is finally revealed and we are not in.

      Sorry Robin, nothing for Belgium ( I think you get Youtube and dailymotion).I don’t know if you are from the dutch side of belgium or the french side. We dutch people of Holland don’t get much, the only intresting is youtube and dailymotion .Even germany and italy are more important for them than us Belgian/Dutch persons.

        Wait, what is your reason for that Belgium or the Netherlands might be more important for Microsoft than Germany or Italy? These two have way more people and way more customers.

        Your wrong on that part. The Netherlands have brought more products to microsoft than most countries have. And besides that it has nothing to do with how many people a country has. it has got everything to do with cable companies. The netherlands doesnt have any special tv on demand stations. So thats why we dont have any special channels on XBL.

    Most is kinda useless unless your local cable TV provider allows it. I had directv which was half the price of Time Warner Cable and could not get anything ESPN unless i was part of the TimeWarner TV package. So about 90% of this is usless junk and to clutter the dashboard. Maybe they should change the dashboard so that we can pick and choose what we want in it rather than have to filter stuff we can not get. Boycott all Cable TV to force them to lower prices

      Netflix and Hulu were available before this update.  You had to pay the $10 a month fee for each of those if you wanted access to them.  I doubt that’s changing at all.

    Wow! Ireland gets Muzu/Vevo (practically same thing), MLB (I’m sure some of us watch baseball but not enough for an XBOX app), and maybe Youtube and Dailymotion! Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if the “advertisements” stay as “coming soon”!

    I’m one of the few that uses an XBOX for gaming (rare I know) so it’s not a big issue but seriously! There isn’t even enough apps here to fill a hub (that what it’s called? Use to be blades)!

    That aside the new dashboard looks awesome so props for that!
