Xbox Live gets iPlayer, 4OD, Lovefilm

If you own an Xbox 360 and were bemoaning its lack of TV shows and movies for streaming, then this news should cheer you up. Microsoft has just announced deals with BBC iPlayer, 4OD, Lovefilm, Channel 5, Sky, MSN, YouTube, blinkbox and Muzu, meaning you'll be able to access them all straight from your Xbox. Now where's that popcorn?  

All these services will be coming to Xbox Live, Microsoft's online portal for games, TV shows, music and movies. And all will be available before Christmas, which is a nice gift for Xbox owners.

It's part of a huge push for the gaming giant, inking deals with over 40 partners to bring content to Xbox Live. These are all the ones we'll see in the UK though.

So with the weather changing, you've yet another reason to stay in.

 

Will you be renting movies and catching up on missed TV from your Xbox? Or has the PS3 already got that sewn up? Let us know on our Facebook page.
