Xbox UK VOD service

December 5, 2007

Microsoft will allow UK gamers to purchase films through its Xbox 360 console from next week, as the console moves to compete with online download stores. The Xbox Live Marketplace Video Store will initially offer 40 popular film titles in standard and high definition. Users will pay between £2 (E2.9) and £4.50 for each film and have two weeks to watch the movie after download. The service will also roll out in Canada, Ireland, France and Germany after it launched in the US in November last year.
