What Happened to the Xbox 360's IPTV?

Gamers first heard of the intriguing service that the Xbox 360 was going to offer all the way back in January 2007. At the time it was seen as a first for consoles and a very innovative step forward in the home console market but now Playstation have their own method for delivering television to the living room.

So just where did the console's IPTV go?

It is in Beta and currently being trialled worldwide...what a stupid point to make!

lodossrage3687d ago

This IPTV for the 360 has ZERO information for god only knows how long. Home we know is going to come out in public beta form this year for everyone. IPTV we don't even know if it even exists anymore.

So please, there is no comparison to HOME here.

thereapersson3687d ago

HOME, at least, will be coming very soon. The open beta will be this fall, and not too long after will the finished product be released (unless there is a massive bug or unanimous complaint that people notice that causes it to be delayed again for quality control).

Your pathetic trolling attempt fails miserably.

juuken3687d ago

Congratulations!

You fail at teh interwebz!

morganfell3687d ago

Not only is Home coming but IPTV is a PS3 hot item. Someone needs to wave their toy wand a little harder if they expect to erase people's memories.

IPTV on the 360 is sitting in a junk box in Bill Gates closet right next to the version of Marketplace where I can sell T shirts and my own mods for 360 games.

?????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ????????

@Pain

XD

But I still hate your guts. -_-

ActionBastard3687d ago

The owning of Armageddon Knight was masterful.

Tommy Vercetti3687d ago

This is not a big issue. Stop trying to make it one. @Morgan I got your PM. You are a coward and a [email protected] Your father should have pulled out early. If he had none of us would have to put up with you.

juuken3686d ago

Oh yeah?

Home wasn't an issue and yet you and your fanatical crew of 360 musketeers ganged up on PS3 owners and claimed that Home would never come. And then the fairy godmother known as Microsoft did the same damn thing with Sony. Now they have a service that was supposed to be ready since January 2007 that's taking so damn long.

Microsoft are some hypocritical b*tches alright.

And don't insult morgan. I'm sure he's a lot more intelligent than your sorry ass.

He seems to own bots every single damn day and piss them off as well.

TheDeadMetalhead3686d ago

Bots are stupid. But take my advice and just Ignore them.

And for the record, what I meant by my comment above was that I didn't understand the Image that Juuken put with her post. And as for Pain...well. Let's just say I hold a grudge -_-

IPTV was mentioned at CES 08 during |Microsoft's press conference.
http://arstechnica.com/news...

It's hopefully still on track, but knowing Microsoft,they wont release a single shred of info about the service until it is done.

Hububla3686d ago

MS is prolly trying to figure out a way to charge per second of viewing or per channel...

ThanatosDMC3686d ago

HAHAHAH... i dont doubt it!

hadouken0073687d ago

all they money on FFXIII.

Vicophine3687d ago

Probably saving it till the next-generation is ready and have it at it's launch.

juuken3687d ago

Yes, what did happen to it?
Hmmmm...

DRUDOG3687d ago

And I thought it was Sony who've always had a hard time keeping their promises...
/sarcasm

kevin11123687d ago

yea they all do, it seems only fanboys remember sony.

thenickel3687d ago

And when did MS ever make a promise about IPTV and its release date?

juuken3687d ago

Everyone ganged up on Sony about Home and especially in-game XMB did they not?

So where is Microsoft's IP-TV?

thenickel3687d ago

Everybody ganged up on the kiddies so let get revenge. IPTV has been in the works for quite some time and I think it's pretty obvious that it's taking time to get it right.

"So where is Microsoft's IP-TV?" Dude get a life seriously a quit trying to start a fight over something this stupid. Some of you people on this site are just messy angry little individuals that need a good pimp slap in your life.

juuken3687d ago (Edited 3687d ago )

"Everybody ganged up on the kiddies so let get revenge. IPTV has been in the works for quite some time and I think it's pretty obvious that it's taking time to get it right."

Just like what Sony was doing with Home. They may have announced it way too early but they were taking their time to get it right as well. Now you're trying to say 'Microsoft is taking their time to get it right?' When Sony was taking their time to get Home right, everyone (media included) bashed them to oblivion. 'Where's Home'? 'Why is it taking so long?' 'Where is it?'.

Even Microsoft threw some cheap shots at Sony for delaying Home until it was ready.

This has nothing to do with *revenge*. You just *think* I'm getting revenge because I asked a question.

"Dude get a life seriously a quit trying to start a fight over something this stupid. Some of you people on this site are just messy angry little individuals that need a good pimp slap in your life."

First of all, I am not a dude. Second of all, I asked a reasonable question. I asked 'where is it?'. Yeah, I need a good pimp slap because I asked that question?

If people are going to ask Sony what's taking so damn long with Home, then they should be asking what's taking so damn long with this service.

ActionBastard3687d ago

"And when did MS ever make a promise about IPTV and its release date? "

Here: http://www.microsoft.com/pr...

"IPTV on Xbox 360™ is expected to be available to consumers by holiday season 2007 and will be offered by providers that are deploying TV services over broadband networks based on the IPTV Edition software platform."

Your welcome.

thenickel3687d ago

I'm sorry and this has nothing to do with Sony or MS but you sound like a sore looser plain and simple. If you want to take this personal then go ahead but honestly I could careless about the people that talked so bad about Sony and hurt your feelings.

El_Colombiano3687d ago (Edited 3687d ago )

@Action Bastard

Oughhh...that was some horrid ownage for sure!

juuken3687d ago (Edited 3687d ago )

"I'm sorry and this has nothing to do with Sony or MS but you sound like a sore looser plain and simple. If you want to take this personal then go ahead but honestly I could careless about the people that talked so bad about Sony and hurt your feelings."

Awww, I'm sorry I hurt your feelings when I stated the truth. This article does have something to do with Microsoft because Microsoft are the ones who promised the service. This IP-TV was promised in 2007 (thanks Action Bastard, and major ownage there) and yet it's not here. If Microsoft is going to *bully* Sony about Home, then where is their IP-TV?

You still don't get the point I'm trying to make.

Microsoft are hypocritical to the core.

And if you didn't care, you wouldn't have responded. You're just upset because I ruined your argument. :)

Ah, and calling me a loser too? You're a clever one aren't you?

tweaker3686d ago

Did you see how thenickel completely ignored Action Bastards post?

Owned.

Megatron083686d ago

Its obvious juuken is just so sore lil ps3 fanboy but hey be nice to him. His parents probably dont love him so he thinks that if baby's his ps3 and protects it. It will love him and that will make up for it.

The article is just trash writen by another bitter fanboy.

oh and comparing home and IPTV is just stupid. Home is a few lines of coding vs trying to get a service up and running that will have 100's of channels in multiple countries and in different languages. If you want to compare home to something it be closest to the new xbox dashboard.

"Its obvious juuken is just so sore lil ps3 fanboy but hey be nice to him. His parents probably dont love him so he thinks that if baby's his ps3 and protects it. It will love him and that will make up for it."

It's obvious that you fail to check my profile and see that I'm actually a female. But that's okay because I expected it from ignorant people these days.

It's also obvious that you didn't read my comments in full before you posted your comments. And if I love/protect my PS3, then 360 owners do the same exact thing, even when the company from which their console came from is as hypocritical as they come. They can admit no wrong at all whatsoever.

"The article is just trash writen by another bitter fanboy."

Yes, written by a bitter fanboy. It seems that this *fanboy* actually had a point, considering that this was a feature dating back to January of *last* year. And yet Sony was attacked for delaying Home...kind of interesting to see 360 owners excuse Microsoft for this when they were attacking PS3 owners for Home.

I wasn't born yesterday.

"oh and comparing home and IPTV is just stupid. Home is a few lines of coding vs trying to get a service up and running that will have 100's of channels in multiple countries and in different languages. If you want to compare home to something it be closest to the new xbox dashboard."

Just like comparing Home to Second Life? But 360 owners have no problem doing that, right?

And excuse you? Home is just a few lines of coding? What the hell...do you work for Sony or something? You have *no* idea how long it takes for Sony to work on Home so I suggest not *trying* to pretend that you know about it. If you're going to take up that logic with me, then I could say that this IP-TV takes a few lines of coding.

You are unbelievable and obviously very blind.

You have some nerve calling me a fanboy (or girl) when you're acting the same exact way.

And look at the disagrees fly! Obviously I struck some nerves with those comments didn't I?

green3686d ago

Most of you sony fanboys are so ignorant and are just so happy to jump on any anti microsoft news to make you feel better about your console.

@juuken: Dont ever use the word "everybody".Just because you are a troll does not mean others are.Check my comment history and then tell me when i have made a comment about home,in fact i bet you won't find me trolling PS3 stories ever.

Why because i am more than happy with my 360 so don't care about the opposition.

To the rest of you guys: You do realise that Microsoft has to rely on 3rd parties to deploy the IPTV service on the 360, unlike sony that is developing home all bu it self. At CES 08 microsoft stated that it was almost ready and BT (British Telecom) will start rolling out the service later on in the year., and if you stay in the uk you would realise that BT as a company are very very slow company.

There was even an article on the sunday times in 06 about a company suing BT Vision about a breach in contract that made them delay the services that they where contracted to provide, which in turn lost the company millions.unfortunately i can't find the story on the internet.

And too any person especially PS3 only owners.If you feel that the reason you are spamming 360 threads all the time like Juuken ,is not to try and justify your console purchase, then i ask you one question.Why don't you do the same for the wii or DS?

juuken3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

"@juuken: Dont ever use the word "everybody".Just because you are a troll does not mean others are.Check my comment history and then tell me when i have made a comment about home,in fact i bet you won't find me trolling PS3 stories ever."

Why thank you.

I am a troll indeed, considering I've been on this account from since I ever came here and never felt the need to create multiple accounts to harass others.

I'm sure you wouldn't call the other 360 owners trolls when they consistently use fake accounts to debubble/bubble their comrades/enemies. Maybe *everyone* isn't a word to use but there are *people* who actually troll PS3 articles and then want to accuse PS3 owners of actually doing the same thing.

"Why because i am more than happy with my 360 so don't care about the opposition."

Then good. I never implied that you shouldn't be happy with your 360.

"To the rest of you guys: You do realise that Microsoft has to rely on 3rd parties to deploy the IPTV service on the 360, unlike sony that is developing home all bu it self. At CES 08 microsoft stated that it was almost ready and BT (British Telecom) will start rolling out the service later on in the year., and if you stay in the uk you would realise that BT as a company are very very slow company."

Later on in the year? Um...yeah, this is 2008. This was back in 2007. Yeah, very, very slow company. I don't see this coming out for the 360 at all.

It'll be more like the XBox 720.

"There was even an article on the sunday times in 06 about a company suing BT Vision about a breach in contract that made them delay the services that they where contracted to provide, which in turn lost the company millions.unfortunately i can't find the story on the internet."

Hmm. interesting.

"And too any person especially PS3 only owners.If you feel that the reason you are spamming 360 threads all the time like Juuken ,is not to try and justify your console purchase, then i ask you one question.Why don't you do the same for the wii or DS?"

This is not a 360 thread. I don't see this in the 360 section. I have as much right as anyone else to comment on any article I wish to comment on. Just because I am not kissing the asses of Microsoft, does not mean that I am not allowed to speak my mind. I just found it very hypocritical of Microsoft to bash Sony for Home, when this service is taking so long.

They shouldn't be throwing stones when their own service is experiencing delays.

And I do not post to justify my purchase. I know why I bought a PS3. It has 1st party games I really want to play as well as 3rd party games I would rather play on the PS3. I know it has very reliable hardware and it won't break on me within a month. I know that I can play bluray and HD-DVD movies on it when I feel lazy.

I do plan on getting a 360 for Christmas but Microsoft needs to get their act together. That's why I'm very critical of them and the 360 at the moment.

I do comment on Nintendo news once in a while because I like Nintendo. I do plan on getting a Wii soon because it does have some good games. I actually think they're doing a really good job in terms of sales.

So I comment on all three consoles.

And thank you again for calling me a troll. Whenever someone doesn't sing the praises of Microsoft, they're immediately attacked for being a troll.

Amazing.

green3686d ago

Oh get of it.You are not buying a 360 and you know it.You only use that as an excuse to be a troll plain and simple.So why don't you simply vanish until you actually get the 360, then we would have something to talk about.

And considering what other 360 fanboys do in PS3 related articles.Well i don't know,why?because i don't read PS3 related articles to know what happens there.But one thing is for sure, they are no way as bad as you guys.

I gave you a challenge and i am still waiting for the link.You said every 360 fan jumped on the home delay bandwagon.Pls can you provide the link to when i did it?

The Wood3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

"And considering what other 360 fanboys do in PS3 related articles.Well i don't know,why?because i don't read PS3 related articles to know what happens there.But one thing is for sure, they are no way as bad as you guys."

you don't read the articles yet you claim you 'know for sure' lol are you the messiah or something cause it definitely goes both ways here on n4g and i remember the times when the ps3 wasn't doing too well supposedly and the site was full of people hating/doubting on sony including yourself. Maybe juuken generalised which is wrong but for you to claim something as ridiculous as what you did is just as wrong.

There were many people hating on home. You weren't there so you wouldn't know. Even some of MS's people made sly digs at home so why wouldn't the fanboys. You are see through. A question was asked yet the proof that action bstard posted was conveniently ignored. ALL systems have delays. Delays are a part of our industry. The delay of this may have been overemphasized because of the constant digs at sony by SOME about delays on sony's system be it games or services.

green3686d ago

@ the wood: Delays are part of life, it happens.If some fanboys take pleasure in seeing the dissatisfaction of other fellow gamers, then to me that is completely sad and distasteful.

Maybe things like these don't bother me because as much as i am a game enthusiast i am also nuts about cars.I have a collection of over 200 car magazines that i started collecting over 12 years ago.If you guys think home and iptv delay is long then you guys should take a look at the motor industry and you will see delays of up to 5 years.

All i know is that IPTV is not just microsoft but there are other players on the table who might be contributing in delaying the product.But maybe this should teach sony and microsoft to stop talking about products until they are sure that the product is ready to be released.

juuken3686d ago (Edited 3686d ago )

"Oh get of it.You are not buying a 360 and you know it.You only use that as an excuse to be a troll plain and simple.So why don't you simply vanish until you actually get the 360, then we would have something to talk about."

How about *you* come off it?

Nice way of assuming that I won't buy a 360 when I said many, many times I was getting a 360 for Ninja Gaiden 2 and a few rpg's. I've mentioned plenty of times that my uncle was buying me a 360 for my graduation present from college. The only reason why I was back and forth with the 360 is because of the RROD. I would have gotten the 360 *myself* if it wasn't for those hardware issues.

"And considering what other 360 fanboys do in PS3 related articles.Well i don't know,why?because i don't read PS3 related articles to know what happens there.But one thing is for sure, they are no way as bad as you guys."

No where as bad? Oooooooh, are you serious? So it was my imagination when I saw several accounts using *my* username in the most insulting way possible? 'Juuken's Smelly Cunt'? Heh, I'd say that it came from a very immature 360 fan, yes? What about the other accounts people like PoG has? The Mart? What about the accounts someone like 4D has? REDZEV? I could go on and on.

There may a few crazy PS3 owners here, but that is NOTHING compare to what I've seen 360 fanboys do on a daily basis. When you have to sink so low as to insult a member at N4G...it shows that the person literally struck a nerve there.

"I gave you a challenge and i am still waiting for the link.You said every 360 fan jumped on the home delay bandwagon.Pls can you provide the link to when i did it?"

I don't need to provide a link because the evidence is right there. How about doing the research yourself instead of asking me for it? I never did see your comment as a *challenge* for that matter so...um...kinda lame.

You seem to be defending most of these 360 owners a lot, which amuses me to no end. I may have been wrong for generalizing because there are a few decent 360 owners here (Montrealien is one but he also owns a PS3) but I am not wrong for pointing out the general actions most 360 owners have carried out when attacking PS3 owners.

So *you* didn't exactly bash Home.

Bad generalizing on my part.

CreativeDestruction3686d ago

Leaves everyone blind.

These playground "'the blue power ranger's better than the red one!' 'Nuh-uh!'" arguments belong on the short bus back to the open zone.

dantesparda3686d ago

That Green was just a straight up fvcking fanboy. What's ignorance! All fanboys are the same (Sony & MS) period! and Creative Destruction, that was beautiful.
