Microsoft is celebrating Year 1 of the 360’s existence by allowing gamers and other 360 users to download high-def movies and TV shows. Aw yeah.
Starting Nov. 22, stuff from CBS, MTV, Paramount Pictures, Turner Broadcasting, Ultimate Fighting Championship, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be available for purchase. Episodes of shows like “Numb3rs” and “CSI” will be there, as well as a group of 50 Ultimate Fighting bouts. I want to check those out — and it has nothing to do with the fact that I play video games.
Here’s a list of more items that’ll be downloadable on Live, so say they:
-Robot Chicken and Aqua Teen Hunger Force from The Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.
-CSI, Survivor, and remastered episodes of classic Star Trek from CBS.
-Emmy and Peabody award-winning comedy South Park and Chappelle’s Show from COMEDY CENTRAL.
-The Real World and Pimp My Ride from MTV.
-Avatar: The Last Airbender and SpongeBob SquarePants from Nickelodeon.
-Skyland and The Nicktoons Network Animation Festival from Nicktoons Network.
-Mission: Impossible III, Nacho Libre, and Jackass: The Movie from Paramount Pictures.
-Carpocalypse and Raising the Roofs from Spike TV.
-Race Rewind provided by NASCAR.COM.
-Select episodes of the original season of The Ultimate Fighter reality series and UFC: All Access from the UFC.
-Breaking Bonaduce and Hogan Knows Best from VH1.
-The Matrix, Superman Returns, and Batman Forever from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
It’s times like this where I really want my 360 to get back from the shop. Soon. Now.
