Xbox Movies Now Live

Microsoft today announced that its movie and TV show service for Xbox 360 owners is now active. The release confirms the previously unmentioned pricing system for the online store, which had been announced without these details two weeks ago. Under the points-based Xbox Live Marketplace system, standard-definition TV shows can be bought for the equivalent of $2 -- similar to Apple's iTunes Store -- while full-length movies can be rented for $3 at the same resolution. Notably, Microsoft says it will charge a premium for high-definition content, with TV programs available for $3 and HD-quality films rentable for $6 each. The launch is accompanied by 50 TV shows and 48 movies; both numbers are expected to grow significantly in coming weeks.
