** Denotes existing partners on Xbox LIVE available today.


These additions will come in an update that will also give us a new XBOX dashboard.  To use things like HBO GO you'll need to be subscribed to them through your cable provider.  


Take a look at the announcement trailer.





This is a great move on Microsoft's part.  Though I'm sure that in the future we'll seeing many of these same services being made available on Playstation Network.  I'm hoping that with this evolution we'll soon be able to also use our devices as DVR's as well.  


Ahhh the future.


What say you?
