[citation][nom]burnley14[/nom]What's this going to cost?[/citation]
My first thought too
What's the price? If they can somehow bump the live membership cost up and include this, that would be sweet. Say you pay $70 for the year or something. If it's a monthly fee (which it probably will be) they are going to have a VERY tough time getting people to move from Netflix or other services.
I just got an HD HomeRun Prime to use the Xbox as my cable box. $3.50/month to rent a cablecard, and now I simply hook a wireless xbox up to the network and have my cable anywhere. However, $200 for the device. This feature M$ announced will likely still require a cable subscription, it just eliminates your current cable box, or it adds a cable box in the case where your 360 is attached in say, the kids' room. They now get these digital channels etc instead of just what is plugged into the TV's tuner.

Couldn't agree with you more.
Unfortunately, they've now announced that it's only with existing cable service providers... too bad. They almost had a good idea. Unfortunately, I will never go back to pay-tv as long as the prices are so ridiculous to watch the 10 or so channels I enjoy. Long live icefilms/streaming/torrents... my movie/tv collection has never been bigger
