The 'when' has not been announced, but 360 has partnered with many television providers around the globe to bring television to your console. Supposedly the long term goal is that you could replace your television box with your xbox and still receive the same television channels as you would through your television provider.

Well XBOX is partnered with Sky in the UK. Like I'm going to pay £30 a month to watch selected shows on my XBOX.

Yea, that sky thing has been around for quite some time. I have it stateside (tunnel my xbox through my UK proxy) and it's p cool. Even more stuff is going to be showing up. Pretty much the goal is to not have cable/satellite boxes in the future I think. Run it through consoles. Plenty of pros/cons to that. I'm mixed on the issue. Would be really cool to finally have all my media in one device, but not sure how I feel about consoles fighting over media rights and, thus, jacking up the price of the services.

I like the idea, but considering how inconsistent most Internet connections are, I'd rather rely upon satellite/transmitters for my television. However, I do realise that Microsoft/Sony intentions are more for the end game, and with the continued investment in the UK's digital infrastructure, consoles could really carve a large percentage of the market on the next generation of consoles.

I play my XBOX because it cost me less than a gaming PC. TV on consoles is a gimmick. They're just becoming shit PCs tbh.
