If only they added the major networks like FOX, CBS, NBC, and ABC... I might be persuaded to jump all over this.

Major Networks can be received, in most places, over the air for free...

But, I was mainly posting to add additional info: Users can tack on additional "packs" of channels for $5 each:

“Kids Extra” add-on with Disney Junior, Disney XD, Boomerang, Baby TV and Duck TV

“News & Info Extra" pack with HLN, Cooking Channel, DIY and Bloomberg TV.

The company says they're also working on a "Sports Extra" package, that will be available "soon."


AND, XboxWire says, "we’re excited to announce that all Xbox Live members will get an exclusive extended free trial for one month at launch"

Sweet bring it on, more options.

I think this will be great now ppl can pay for what they wanna watch instead of paying cable companies a bunch of money for crap channels when we only get cable for a couple of channels

MeliMel3252d ago

Man HBO needs to go the same route. Stand alone no cable company middle man. And watch HBO stock go thru the roof! I would pay $20 month for HBO..Awesome movies, tv shows and best boxing!

Julion07153252d ago

Yea man I agree. But I dnt think cable tv is dead one of the top cable providers should come up with something called u pick where u can basically pick the channels u want in ur package that would be awesome.

They have already announced that HBO will have an Over-the-top option coming out in 2015.

Collaborations with Sonic the Hedgehog, Universal Studios Japan, and Sengan-en will no longer be available in the game after January 21, 2024.

Players who’ve already downloaded the content will be able to continue to use it. However, whereas most games and content that are delisted are still available to redownload after they’re gone, this isn’t the case here.
