UK gamers are stupid enough for now. They dont need American TV to lower their ignorance levels even more.

Xbox E3 announcement: Hulu?

Postby Jensonjet » 02 Jun 2010, 10:44

What would really be a welcome announcement was if Microsoft said the BBC iPlayer was coming to Xbox Live. Unfortunately it won't happen because they can't make any money out of it. It's a shame the company is run on such a shoe-string budget and need every penny they can squeeze out of customers! At least we'll have some sh*tty party games to play when the Wave/Natal project rears it's overpriced, ugly little deformed head.

Yes you're right, there is no place for any American shows on UK TV. How dare they bring such exports like The Wire, The Sopranos, Lost, Sons of Anarchy, The Shield, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Twin Peaks, Oz and countless others to try and pollute our educated and high brow brains.

Correct me if im wrong, but isnt Hulu free for American's to use on their PC?
Whats next Microsoft? A subscription based Youtube app?

Just give your user base a web browser so they can access online video as they would on their PC.

This will be short lived anyway as next year will be the year of the online tv (Google TV etc) with access to online video's via specific aps or the built in browser.

It really won’t, Google TV is essentially a specialised web browser that searches for content. They will not be providing content themselves, worldwide broadcasters will hold the rights to this content and as such will not be available online unless for a heavy premium.

Have you seen Google TV. They have signed up big players and I believe Hulu is one. It can be built into the TV or as a set top box and can be linked with you current TV subscription. Searching for a show such from the home screen as Lost will bring up all available online shows from partners like Hulu or iPlayer and will list them allong side shows currently on Sky or in the future for you to record.

If a show is not on one of these partners such as channels Five's player, the web broswser has full Flash support so you can browse the web for the show.

It also supports any Android app that doesnt require phone hardware so a lot of TV specific apps and widgets will appear like sport updates via RSS ticking over the screen while your wife is watching Eastenders.

GoogleTV was just my example but webTV in general has a lot of potential and its gonna be huge.
