    I would weep tears of joy if Amazon VOD would come to the 360.  I’ve been trying to find something to replace my Roku, and that one feature keeps me hanging on.  The last thing I need the Xbox to do is stream my blu-ray movies (file/folder, or MKV I’m not picky).  A blu-ray in the hands of a 4 year old is no bueno.

    It took almost 10 years for Xbox live to reach
    countries like Greece or Portugal… I suppose a few more years would not hurt
    anyone; for a service like YouTube which btw, is available in my country
    through numerous other devices… from my good old PC to my “smart”
    TV… now how smart Xbox is really?

     

    I am in the
    preview program (new dashboard) and the only new feature I have to test is…
    the new UI… nothing more… 
    No Kinect voice commands (surprise), no apps (app market is just… empty), no YouTube,
    no… no…

     

    Job done I think (I mean about the preview program).

      Well Youtube is supported by ads on the website normally.  Would you rather have ads on the XBox Live app?

        A better comparison would be: You’re paying a monthly fee for data on your iphone, which allows you to view youtube for free. Here. you’re paying monthly for xbox live, which “allows” you to *ALSO* watch youtube for free. I’m not saying I agree or disagree, just making that distinction.

        But I’m paying a monthly fee for my home internet, which then gives me free access to YouTube on my iMac, Wii, PS3, or iPhone (via WiFi). Or I can pay ANOTHER fee on top of that first fee to access it on my Xbox 360.

        The comparisons really aren’t the same.

    Okay, seriously—YouTube only for Xbox Live Gold members is just utterly ridiculous. YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Netflix—all can be done on other platforms without needing to pay an extra free, and nothing about the Xbox 360 implementations are worth having them locked away only to subscribers.

    It’s baffling how much Live Silver members are made to feel like second-class citizens. (And I say this as somebody who pays for Gold.)

    The Blinkbox app is pretty weak. You can browse the content, but can’t actually buy or rent anything. To do that requires a PC with a web browser…  Not exactly very well thought out there Microsoft.

    And all the free Blinkbox content is blocked on the 360.   Oh and even if you jump through all the hoops to actually rent something, it’s in SD….  
    Better not to add poor apps at all, as it just makes the service look bad.

      There is a search function (keyboard/controller only) – look down at the action buttons below. Too bad it looks like they’re not indexing it right now, though. Would be nice to use voice to search.
