    The PlayStation has PlayStation vue for TV streaming. Microsoft needs to get in the TV streaming game. Maybe the could use the WebTV name and subsidize it to get a major foot in the door.

    Idea: Xbox Platinum Membership with Zune TV/Movie Subscription(Not Pass)

    While IP TV would be amazing, I was actually going with the fact of a streaming service i.e. Netflix/Hulu streaming service allows you to watch TV episodes and what not. I'd rather give my money to Microsoft than either of them to stream my content.

    Alright Microsoft, your competitor Sony has revealed their TV-through-the-console plan, and its even more antagonistic to the cable industry than what we're all asking for from you...

    Could you please at a minimum release a MCE app for the Xbox One?? All we want to do is cutout the cable box and DVR fees - not dump cable all together like Sony's service may make feasible for some folks.

    Better yet, release a multi-tuner CableCARD/TA/HDD companion for the Xbox One and cut WMC out of the equation if you like.

    If Sony has the balls to introduce a service aimed at replacing traditional cable TV service outright, MS should at least have the courage to bring back WMC/MCE or otherwise provide a way to have their brand new console cutout the cable box rental and DVR
    fees...

    Xbox 720 Launch Titles Predictions/Wishlist

    [quote user="Snack Cabinet"]It would blow Sony and Nintendo out of the water. That's
    if it did happen. It's very highly unlikely that it will though.[/quote]It happened with the launch of the XBOX. Microsoft hedged their bet with... I believe it was WebTV. WebTV failed, the XBOX succeeded.



    I see no reason to believe Microsoft would fragment the user base in that manner. One device for everything.

    Will Dolby Vision support come to Xbox One X for 4K bluray discs?

    My understanding is that it's only supported on streaming now, not discs, for any tv brand.

    Downloading Halo Reach In Holiday Bundle?

    Eh, idk. Possibly, but there are a lot of people (myself included) that love the feeling of opening a brand new game and putting a decorated new disc in the tray. That's probably one of the reasons that the "On Live" service isn't very popular. It's just
    streaming games from the internet to your TV so the TV is basically the "console". On Live isn't related to Xbox though.
