Microsoft HD movie download store for Xbox 360 is coming - Mp4 Converter

Updated November 8,2006

The New York Times carries official word that November 22 is the day Microsoft will launch a HD movie download store for the Microsoft Xbox 360. I've heard rumors about this for the last month or so but I thought that the HD-DVD pack for the Microsoft Xbox 360 would derail any downloadable HD movie store. It's pretty impressive to hear they'll be offering them in high definition, as that's likely to push download times into the several hours instead of the 10-20 min it takes to get a low-res show from the Apple iTunes Store. The downside is that movie DRM will require that you watch the movie within 24 hours, but TV shows should last longer.

I'm surprised to see Microsoft beat Apple, Netflix, TiVo, Sony, and Amazon to the TV-integrated movie store. It'll be interesting to see how well it works out for Microsoft.
