      Ever hear people brag about browsing on Wii or PS3? Because it’s horrible. Game systems can do many things well. Web browsing is not one of them.

      From what i understand ESPN has exclusive rights for the UK including online streaming (ps. the ESPN channel is £10 a month on the sky go app which is way cheaper than sepewrate UFC events)

    To date, none of the TV apps are in HD, they’re barely SD. Which is funny because the ads that run before some of the videos are in HD.

    That’s great. Go to the VUDU Wal-Mart site…it mentions nothing about the 360 but mentions a million other things to watch it with, including the PS3.  Good ol Wal-Mart.

      To be fair, the service just launched today on 360 so it’s understandable that they may not have updated their site yet.

    I think it would be nice to have some type of description of the application in the app marketplace.  Currently I have to look on the web to know what some of these are, or I have to install the app, play with it a bit to know what it is really for.

    The picture quality on these streaming apps is absolutely brutal. I realise MS can only push what the providers give them, but the stuff on 4OD and Demand 5 is like a 10th generation VHS pirate copy. It would be unwatachable on an iPhone from 25 meters away, let alone on a 50-60″ HDTV.

    Hopefully when iPlayer and Netflix arrive in the UK early next year they’ll at least be 720p, if not 1080p. I have the bandwidth, lots and lots of it, so please, don’t hold back.

      They dont have Windows Phone integration, I doubt Xbox is their top priority.
      I would expect them to integrate Skype into Video Kinect.

    Once again I’m blocked out of content from my country of residence😦

    Over 5 years since the 360 launched, stacks of minor and major updates, hundreds of games launched and Microsoft STILL cannot work out a way to allow me to change my country of residence from IRL to UK😦  I know that this imposition derives from content licensing restrictions but I am left in the situation were I’ve no choice but to keep accessing content that, due to my changed location, MS should NOT be allowing me to use.  This stupid restriction ENSURES that MS break their agreement with content providers.

    Freedom of movement in the EU doesn’t exist in the world of XBL!
