Probably..
after they add more servers to keep the system from bogging down.

Going on 2 1/2 days downloading Poseidon HD 4.5GB and only 54% complete on a 6MBps connection.

Dont feel bad

Yeah, bandwidth is a problem. It will take 5 times more servers than what's needed for game servers. I'm sure microsoft has a plan for this; kudos for microsoft for jumping into this. It will be a while before this will be smooth. But this is a start and it's better than nothing (which is what every other console is offering).

XBox 360 with all these features $399, PS3 with none of these features $599, microsoft expanding the network the way they did with xbox live $Millions, look in your face when this service become the next xbox live for entertainment [priceless].

dont tell my girlfriend
LOL. Ye am looking forward to this service am in the UK when does it come over here? any idea
beans  +   2955d ago
As soon as MS figures out away to speed up downloads than live will be something to truly look out for!
Daewoodrow  +   2955d ago
you can get this in the UK. Just make a second US account. You HAVE to buy the 2100 point card as it is the only point card that works in all regions, and you can't use a UK credit card on a US account. Once you've done that, you'll be able to download movies off your fake US account.

It takes that long???
To download a rental?? If I'm going to spend that kind of time downloading a movie, I better be able to keep it and watch it whenever I damn well like, even if they charge me more for it. It's hella easier just to leg it down the video store or get a pay per view on cable if you're into renting films, which I'm not.

TOOO LONG
I downloaded southpark epis...

Over two hours for one episode. 256 megs
Solidus  +   2955d ago
WAY THE HELL TOO LONG
This is by far the worst service I have ever used.
I tried to download southpark to but it took 5 hours! F that Microsoft should stick to games and let sony come up with the media stuff.
TheSadTruth  +   2955d ago
or maybe you should stop being a dumbass and wait for them to get more servers hosted or fix the problems? use your tiny brain kid
TheMART  +   2955d ago
That came from a Sony's fan mouth, I am surprised, the only one with logical thinking at this moment in time it seems

The service is new guys. It's overloaded with people that trying to pull things in. MS will fix this soon. As they do with all problems that arise.

Don't forget. This has never been shown before. And it will work, soon. Early adaptors will see these problems. But I bet they won't take long to solve

Unexpected
I don't think MS anticipated this amount of traffic. I expect it will improve greatly in a short period of time.

I like the idea of renting hi-def movies, but I want them quicker. At most it should be an overnight deal.
DeathNote1  +   2955d ago
even demos took forever to download.
the knew it would happen
they just want money
DeathNote1  +   2955d ago
NO!
lol@ ms not letting core users use their service

&

5+ hours worth of downloading.
Daewoodrow  +   2955d ago
what the hell are you talking about? Core users can use the service. But where do you think they'll be storing Gigabytes of movie files without a hard drive? If a core user wants to download a movie, they need to buy a hard drive. Simple as that.
DeathNote1  +   2954d ago
that's exactly what the hell i'm talking about. you got it dead on.

they left core users out of the picture, unless they BUY a harddrive. an addon.

If you bought the core system, you chose to do so. The premium console has a hard drive included, and costs £145 less than the PS3. So I really don't see your point.

The core system is just the console. It prevents you from having to spend extra on it if all you want to do is play games. Or if you want to upgrade it later when you have more cash. If you buy the core and then wonder why you can't store a 3gb movie on it, you are a retard.

I think it is fine.
All we need is the patch to fix the slow down loads and ESPN. XBL rocks.
calderra  +   2955d ago
As said elsewhere:
Millions of users, gigabytes of downloads PER PERSON, and the service is only SLOW!?

Amazing.
