I would actually buy some Los Angeles Lakers games, but only the ones not televised nationally because I record all of those in my HD DVR.

it will fail when it hits UK shores i just know it, we dont really give 2 hoots over TV on our PC's and consoles. Xbox live should be for games, dedicated so there are no problems for the Xbox gamers. I wouldn't want to pay a couple of quid to watch a football game, Yeah the only way i get to watch Celtic play is on PPV Setanta, no problem i know plenty of people with it, better watching games with your mates and some beer!! Sorry M$, it just wont work here!!

Id like to see movies for download if it had the ability to be moved to a pc. Also id like to be able to download TV and stuff or stream it.

Im from GLSGW and i know that You can only see Celtics league games on setanta heck even now im watching Champions League but the whole point is that you dont have to buy a weeks subscription to a channel to watch 1 football game the point is that you can stream games and watch them again. Or order a PPV it would be good to download HD movies because they would be cheaper than buying Blu ray or HD DVD

A few Celtic fans here I see...is it just because Garnet and Allen joined, or were you already fans? Lol, I'm a Laker fan here, hope the old Lakers VS. Celtics rivalry comes back.

nah i support Glasgow Celtic Football Club not Celtics in US of A the basketball team other than Glasgow Celtic FC i like Inter milan i think that downloads other than xbox live arcade games can work just need a better payment system like actual money but then theres currency barriers i think it could still work all it needs is a currency exchange rate to be sorted so that all our dl cost about the right price.
