Although we as South African’s don’t really get to benefit from any of Live’s movie and TV shows, I will just quickly mention that Microsoft have now also signed on NBC and Universal adding to the already massive lineup of shows and movies for people to download and watch.

They also announced that they have now joined together with Netflix, allowing subscribers to instantly watch any of the movies on offer. This is a huge blow to Apple TV and a major announcement for the Xbox 360. Live will now apparently offer around 10 000 videos for you to choose from.

  • The big thing that affects everything, is Live Party – 8 way Live chat which also allows to to share media, ie you can watch a movie with 8 of your friends at the same time. That’s huge!
