No offence but if this will only be available in the US, why are we being told here in the UK? What's the point?

In any case we can get channels showing US tv shows on Sky and Virgin anyway.

If Xbox Live "Diamond" is real, then I would probably get it. I'm one of those people who likes to have it all :P I don't know why! That's just me I guess! :lol:
Anyways, I hope it doesn't cost much more than Gold, but you never know what other things they might add in as well. Tomorrow shall tell. Can't wait.

Is this going to be a new xbox version or some kind of little box that hooks up to it that you pay hundreds of dollars for

Microsoft have been stating for weeks about video downloads are becoming more popular on xbox. This is just something that was inevitable. I bet that ITV and 4OD will be released for xbox UK, if not tomorrow then soon. I just hope BBC iplayer will be included!

I hope it comes with the options to pick which channels you pay for instead of just a group package.

Could be interesting, but I would only want a subscription for tv if it was showing football. Sky is far too expensive and I doubt very much they would relinquish the rights to show it to MS.

Sound like a good idea for some people although my Sky box & torrents do me nicely & even if they didn't I doubt I could afford on top of Gold & PS+ :(
