    Microsoft confirms 360 IPTV

    Microsoft confirms 360 IPTV

    Microsoft is continuing to develop its latest console, this time with an IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) update. Microsoft itself will not be providing the content that is available, this responsibility will instead fall upon existing providers, with AT&T rumoured to be one of these. Websites first started to report this last Saturday, but it has only just been confirmed by Microsoft, and they have not yet announced which providers will to be used. If the company chooses to allow users to record the content or uses video on demand, the rumoured 120GB hard drive now seems all the more likely. The Xbox 360 was already capable of streaming high definition video from a PC, but the console will now be capable of HD TV programmes directly through a broadband connection.

    CES 2007 KeyNote (Video!): IPTV, 10.4m Sold, 5m Live subs, 2.8m GoW, ...
    >> Conference is over now ... you can read our LIVE coverage of Bill Gates' Keynote at CES 2007 at the bottom of this news article.
    Here's a video we quickly encoded and uploaded to google video for you. It's not the complete keynote, it's just the part hosted by Robbie Bach from Microsoft's Entertainment Division (which includes everything about the Xbox360 including the IPTV demo toward the end of the video). The audio (mp3) of the complete keynote is available at Major Nelson's Blog and Microsoft will release a high-quality video of the complete keynote very soon here.
    Xbox 360 and Microsoft TV: Together Expanding the World of Games and Entertainment

    In a move that will combine the power of Xbox 360 with Microsoft TV IPTV Edition, Bach provided an early look at a new service, IPTV on Xbox 360. The offering is expected to deliver world-class TV experiences such as digital video recording capabilities, with gaming, movie viewing, and even voice and video communications. Tapping into an expanded set of entertainment experiences, users will be able to watch their favorite sporting event live while chatting with their friends, for example, or participate in a match on Xbox Live® while they record a TV program in the background. IPTV on Xbox 360 is expected to be available to consumers by holiday season 2007 and will be offered by providers that are deploying TV services based on the Microsoft TV IPTV Edition software platform.

    "Our goal is to make entertainment more personal, more interactive and more social," Bach said. "IPTV on Xbox 360 and Xbox Live are powerful examples of ways we are bringing together the worlds of gaming, TV viewing and community to make it easy for people to access and discover their favorite content and share their personal experiences with the communities they are part of."

    Microsoft TV IPTV Edition continues to strengthen its position in the market with deployments under way with five of the world's largest service providers and trials with 11 additional companies, representing a footprint across 14 countries on four continents.

    Bach also showcased the strong momentum behind Xbox 360 and highlighted the company's success in delivering high-definition viewing experiences with HD DVD. Exceeding expectations by hitting the 10.4 million-console-sold mark this holiday season, Xbox 360 is the leading next-generation games and entertainment platform. It is also the largest social network in the living room, with 5 million Xbox Live members.

    In addition, strong sales of the Xbox 360 HD DVD Player and strong demand for downloadable movies and television programs are a clear indication that increasing numbers of consumers see Xbox 360 as an ideal device for connecting to a broad range of entertainment experiences. In just over a year, people have downloaded more than 100 million pieces of content to their Xbox 360 consoles, which include game content, television shows and movies.

    Another press release from CES about the Video Marketplace expansion:
    Content Providers Validate Xbox Live as One of the Top Distributors of Online Entertainment Content

    The surprise entertainment hit of the holidays wasn't in theaters; it was in the living room. With more than 1,000 hours of premium high- and standard-definition content available, Microsoft Corp. announced today at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that Xbox Live® Video Marketplace became a clear leader in the distribution of online entertainment content. In just two months since the launch of the service, the Xbox Live community has been given access to top high- and standard-definition content, from top partners CBS Broadcasting Inc., MTV Networks Co., Paramount Pictures Corp., Turner Broadcasting System Inc., Ultimate Fighting Championship and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Xbox 360 is again leading where it counts, as the only next-generation console offering downloadable high-definition TV shows and films in the U.S.

    Microsoft Announces Lionsgate as Newest Content Partner
    On stage at CES, Microsoft also announced today a new partner for Xbox Live Video Marketplace. Lionsgate will be bringing a lineup of high-definition films to the service in the coming year. Films such as "An American Haunting," "Blair Witch Project," "Crank," "The Descent," "Employee of the Month," "Hard Candy," "Ninth Gate," "The Punisher," "Requiem for a Dream," "Saw III," "See No Evil" and "Stir of Echoes" will be available for download on Xbox Live Video Marketplace in high definition in 2007.
    "This partnership is great for Lionsgate. The Xbox gamer is the same moviegoer who wants to watch "Saw III," or "Crank," said Jon Ferro Exec Vice President of Lionsgate. "That is why we are so thrilled to bring Lionsgate films to Xbox Live Video Marketplace. Bringing our content to this audience makes perfect sense and reflects our commitment to remain at the cutting edge of content distribution to new media platforms."

    Xbox Live: A Leading Online Provider of High-Definition Content
    Xbox Live, the only online social network in the living room, is a thriving community of more than 5 million members who have the ability to download a wealth of high-definition games, television and movies. On Xbox Live, the largest online distributor of high-definition content by volume, the vast majority of subscribers choose the high-definition version of media when given a choice between a standard- or high-definition download on the network.

    mto interessante, mas para um stream de HDTV deve ser um bit rate altíssimo...

    pelo menos cá em Portugal duvido que consigamos ver... mesmo com ofertas a 24mbit a ligação aos servidores da microsoft há de ser muito inferior

    nao tem nada haver mas a MS esta em Alta

    The recent CES revealed to us a lot of information of or relating to Microsoft as a whole. And as some of us would slice-and-dice Bill Gates' keynote address for all the minor details, here's a bulleted list of his speech, as seen in numbers:

    * 30 billion: number of dollars raised by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
    * 2: current place occupied by Microsoft in the MP3 player wars
    * 1 million: number of Zunes they are "on track" to sell
    * 200 million: people who play games on Windows every month
    * 10.4 million: number of Xbox 360 consoles sold worldwide so far
    * 8: number of weeks it took Microsoft to sell 2.7 million copies of Gears of War
    * 160: Games currently on Xbox 360; expected to double this year
    * 3 billion: hours of gaming on Xbox Live thus far
    * 5 million: Xbox Live members

    See the bigger picture now? Lots of millions and billions on that list. Can the big MS keep their streak up? 2007 has barely started and it's pretty much anyone's ball game. Aside from the 360's competitors in the gaming industry, the MP3 player market has its fair share of competition as well.

    Em relação ao iptv, a MS deve ir fazer um contrato com uma operadora nacional,a rumores que as series e filmes do live estejam a chegar a Pt, com servidores da portugal telecom. Pode ser que seja desta que a pt meta iptv. Ja foi dito pela ptmultimedia que em 2007 ou 2008, iria haver iptv em portugal. Sim a clix ja tem mas so em algumas zonas.

    According to GamesIndustry.biz, there are already international partners signed up for IPTV for Xbox 360. Yup, the on-demand service should launch by the end of this year and into 2008.

    As you know, the IPTV service transforms the Xbox 360 into a media console. GamesIndustry.biz points out the digital recorder (including recording what's going on-screen as you play your Xbox 360 game). There's also chatting with friends while watching TV channels. For more info, you can read our past articles on how IPTV was confirmed by Bill Gates and on the pictures on the Internet of what the service will look like.

    The following have already become Microsoft's partners in this venture:

    * AT&T
    * British Telecom
    * Deutsch Telecom
    * Swiss Telecom

    There are also 11 other companies having a trial run of the service. If they like it, we'll see the list of partners grow.

    era bom de mais ser a pt...

    Como esclarecimento pontual e off-topic, a não prosseguir, o número 1 em termos de vendas nos leitores mp3 é o iPOD

    Quanto á Xbox, se o sistema funcar em Portugal e fizer de DVR, é as minhas maravilhas. Andava a precisar de um DVR, se trouxer uma X360 agarrada, melhor.

    Xbox Live to see movie and TV revenue of 726usd million

    A new report estimates that Microsoft could see revenue from TV and movie sales via Xbox Live of $726 million.

    The summary of the report notes that Microsoft is positioning itself "as a key player in the IP video realm." Emerging Media Dynamics expects the Xbox-based video business to grow rapidly, and could see combined revenue from the sale of TV shows and movies via Xbox Live of $92.25 million in 2007. This is expected to grow further each year though 2011, when cumulative revenue from the service could top $726 million.

    Só vai estar disponivel para a X360v2 portanto , certo? É que se for assim vão ter de começar a conta-las outra vez porque o numero de consolas vendidas até á data de lançamento da V2 não vão significar qq lucro para eles com este serviço...

    Epa isso da v2, não vejo la grande motivos para espera, ate porque ainda é rumor, e rumor não e facto! E não se justifica uma eventual espera por uma provavel alterar a capacidade do disco, alteração para 65.cpu e a possivel ligação HDMI. É que os jogos não vao correr melhor "nessa tal v2" em relação as x360 que ja estão no mercado

    Mas talvez tenha menos problemas... com 65nm no minimo dos minimos fica mais fresquinha e a capacidade adicional no disco deve dar mesmo muito jeito , 100gb a mais , por isso é que tava a perguntar como é k vai ser , é que a xbox com 20gb n deve ter capacidade suficiente para todas essas funções novas que se fala e ainda dar para sacar umas demos e coisas do género.
