Microsoft Corporation announced on Monday November 6th that beginning November 22, Xbox 360Microsoft would offer TV episodes such as “CSI” and “South Park” and movies such as “V for Vendetta” and “Mission Impossible III” via Microsoft’s Xbox Live broadband service. The service will be available to any user of Xbox Live’s free or paid service. Microsoft estimates it will have 750 hours of programming available at the launch date and more than 1,000 hours of programming by the end of the year. To use this service, users must have an Xbox 360 and broadband connection. Most of the programming will be in standard-definition and some in high-definition. The major difference between Microsoft’s service and its competitors such as Apple’s iTunes, CinemaNow and Movielink is that you’ll be able to view the movies and sitcoms on your television, versus a portable video device.  Read more about Microsoft’s new service – click here.
