    Headline :: Movie downloads to tie in with DVD releases on Xbox 360

    Paramount have now joined up with Microsoft to deliver digital download content over Xbox live. Not only that, but Warner Bros will be releasing some movies at the same time as the DVD releases. Now that's entertainment!

    Check out the Headline

    I might import an "elite" from the USA if it lets me use video marketplace, digital downloading of movies is the way forward.

    This should work nicely in the USA

    Won't work here for years though, we simply don't have the internet infastructure in the UK to cope with it.

    This is not an issue with the speed - up to 8meg is common now and even 512k is enough really, it is an issue with the download limitations. With most companies capping at around 20-30gig for premium services, and 1-5 for basic packages you just won't be able to download all of these high definition movies (which are usually around 10gig for just HD TV episode..or a low quality/highly compressed film).

    One day, when ISPs actually start giving us unlimited broadband again (won't be *that* long, the ASA are investigating all these 'unlimited' claims atm) this will be useful..until then we'll just have to watch the USA and be jealous..again.
