Xbox 360 As IPTV Cable Box
Microsoft's grand strategy reveals itself
While there has been quite a number of broadband video services launched, it's the Xbox 360 video service that has surprised analysts
by doing well. At CES, Microsoft unveiled plans to expand the unit's role in the video market. Gizmodo has details
, and apparently the 360 IPTV functionality will be available to any of Microsoft's IPTV partners (a long list
, which includes AT&T), who will be able to use the 360 as an IPTV set-top. Vanilla 360 users will see an expansion of video content as well. All of this content will require larger hard drives, though Microsoft remains mum on the price and size of future drives. Kotaku
has additional hands-on impressions.

Re: Proprietary Needs To Go
this will most likely only be available on the v2 360 coming out later this year with a 120Gb HD and HDMI.
this makes Apple TV DoA.....except to the 'me too' buyers who will get anything that Steve Jobs shits out.
