Xbox 360 Video Marketplace: TV Shows, Movies etc Pricing

Xbox 360 Video Marketplace: TV Shows, Movies etc Pricing
Published by forahobby on Saturday, November 18, 2006
Tagged: Live Marketplace, Xbox 360,
And the Xbox Live Marketplace just got a tad bigger, as Microsoft has recently and finally unveiled the Xbox Live Video Marketplace for everyone to enjoy, quashing all rumors along the way. With this new service, Xbox 360 owners will now be able to download full-length HD movies, television show episodes, music videos, or game videos - all of which would be available to Xbox Live Silver and Gold members and can be purchased for a set number of Microsoft Points.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Video Marketplace options with TV Shows, Movies etc etc are only available to XBOX LIVE USA MEMBERS..

You can however create a second gamertag and leave your profile as a USA based address so you can access the TV Shows & Movies Tab..



Regarding pricing, the video tutorial over at the Xbox site notes that HD movies will cost 480 MS points (US$ 6), while the standard definition version of the movie will cost only 320 MS points (US$ 4). As for television shows, either version of one episode would cost 240 MS points (US$ 3).

There's still a few things to remember though, including the fact that episodes will be for the user to keep, the way that Live Arcade games are yours to do with as you please. On the other hand, movies will be on a "rental" basis, meaning, after downloading it, one will have 14 days to sit down and watch the film, but after watching it, the movie will be "returned" after 24 hours, when the rental expires.

And then there's the issue of download speed, though Microsoft says that this is covered since a new service has been launched to handle these types of downloads specifically. This is a good move on Microsoft's part, considering that an HD movie can be as big as almost 5GB, and has to be downloaded overnight or perhaps in the background while you play a game.



In the meantime, the new Video Marketplace has the following up for download:

"Robot Chicken" and "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" from Adult Swim
"CSI," "Survivor", and "Star Trek" from CBS
Emmy and Peabody award-winning "South Park" and "Chappelle’s Show" from COMEDY CENTRAL
"The Real World" and "Pimp My Ride" from MTV
"Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "SpongeBob SquarePants" from Nickelodeon
"Skyland" and "The Nicktoons Network Animation Festival" from Nicktoons Network
"M:i:III," Nacho Libre" and "Jackass: The Movie" from Paramount Pictures
"Carpocalypse" and "Raising the Roofs" from Spike TV
"Race Rewind" provided by NASCAR.COM
Select episodes of the original season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series and the "UFC: All Access" shows from the UFC
"Breaking Bonaduce" and "Hogan Knows Best" from VH1
"The Matrix," "Superman Returns", and "Batman Forever" from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment
