Xbox 360 IPTV details emerge

Television on your Xbox 360 by the end of the year…

More tidbits of information have slipped out of the company's keynote in Las Vegas. The big news? Expect IPTV before the year is out – and never expect to move from your sofa ever again...

"Our goal is to make entertainment more personal, more interactive and more social," Comments Robbie Bach. "IPTV on Xbox 360 and Xbox Live are powerful examples of ways we are bringing together the worlds of gaming, TV viewing and community to make it easy for people to access and discover their favorite content and share their personal experiences with the communities they are part of." Imagine a logical evolution of your current Xbox Live gaming, only now you will be able to record a football match in the background whilst pwning friends on Halo 3, or watching the latest series of 24 in one multi-episode block because you love it so much. And it's coming sooner than you think; Microsoft are hoping to get the service as part of your Xbox 360 Dashboard by Christmas this year.

Forgive my ignorance. Do the companies such as BT offer cable style channels? Or is this a different service all together like a On-demand service? I will have to do some research of my own but the only way I see me getting this is if they offer NFL Sunday ticket Via Direct TV or somthing. Or the High Def programing exceeds what I already have via Cox cable company. which is currently only 14 channels or so

Sony's network ain't got sh!t on Live. Downloadable movies and TV shows, IP-Tv, downloadable arcade games etc... With a 120gb hard-drive coming out, I am going to record tons of IP-TV onto it.

The 360 is a awesome investment.

it's just a matter of when they launch the service. i work for premier communications( a direct tv service provider) and we are going to be firing up a couple of new sats soon which will boost the # of hd channels to over 100. right now, we have 9. hopefully it will be sooner than later.

So Questionmark, Is this gonna be the equivalent of a HD-DVR reciever for Direct TV or what? This is what it seems like but is hard to tell at this point. That would be awsome cause the only thing that stopped me from gettn Direct TV was the 650$ start up tag and thats with FREE installation!! (450$ for the HD-DVR)

I just hope the service provider is Equal to or better than Direct TV, But screw that I want the NFL, but I will settle for 50+ HD channels
