Video Marketplace on Xbox Live now up

Description

(from Major Nelson)
...moments ago we flipped the switch and the service is now available for all U.S. Xbox Live members. No dashboard update needed…just sign in to Xbox Live, and head over to Marketplace, then Media and Entertainment. You can also hit it directly from the Media blade->Video Marketplace. If you have any questions, hit this FAQ or this FAQ on the Xbox forums. It’s fitting that on the Xbox 360’s first birthday, it becomes the first gaming console in history to provide HD TV shows and movies directly to your gaming lair....

    Heh. I'm all for seeing a Batman movie for sale on Live...but why did it have to be one of the ones with the Bat-nipple costumes?

    It would have been better if the nipples actually served a real purpose though. Like maybe they could have shot out pepper-spray whenever he needed it. (I bet the Joker didn't see THAT one coming!)

    Perhaps they were just part of the batsuit's internal radio system? One could have been for tuning AM and the other was for FM radio stations...

    ...

    Yeah, I thought about this one for way too long. My apologies folks! Just killing time before we leave for the long weekend.

    I don't know if it's just me (outside of the US) but I don't see any of that.

    Sad

    It's alsways nice to be excluded, hooray Micro$oft

    ".Avi" and archive support for the media>video blade would also be welcome (like zip and rar archives). Also reading folders like for pictures would also be good, can't figure out why the didn't include folder support (and still refuse to read NTFS partitions...).

    LZIM: The Video Marketplace will be by region due to licencing with the various broadcasters/distributors.

    It has launched in the US and anyone with a US Xbox Live service can browse, purchase, download and view the video. Other countries will follow over time.

    Hope that helps.
