Rogers Communications has confirmed that the Rogers On Demand app on Xbox 360s in Canada will be coming to the Xbox LIVE dashboard this Christmas. The app is the first time Rogers On Demand will be available on a gaming console.
The app, free for Rogers customers, will include over 1,000 hours of video content at launch and be available through the Xbox 360 LIVE Gold subscription. Rogers postpaid wireless, home phone and Internet customers can catch-up on shows from Citytv, CBC and CBC News Network, watch movie trailers and more.
