Microsoft lands more Xbox Live movie and TV deals

By on January 9, 2008, 9:57 AM
At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Microsoft announced it will be expanding the video offerings available through the Xbox Live Marketplace with the addition of two large entertainment companies to its growing list of partners: ABC/Disney Channel and MGM studios.

Microsoft has slowly but steadily grown Xbox Live, which now counts more than 10 million subscribers, from an online gaming platform to include a considerable amount of both standard and high definition content. Subscribers can purchase, through their Xbox 360 consoles, TV shows for between $2 and $4 and rent movies for between $4 and $6. Content from the recently announced partners should be available for download later this month.
