James Bond Comes To Xbox Live Video Marketplace In HD

By on

Microsoft just announced a HUGE lineup for the Xbox Live Video Marketplace. One of the shockers was the inclusion of the James Bond films in HD. As you know, these MGM films are owned by parent company Sony. It’s quite interesting that they are allowing these titles to appear on Xbox Live Marketplace knowing that video downloads for PSN are around the corner. Here’s the release with the full list of new shows and movies.

Did you know that Xbox LIVE is the home to the largest library of on
demand high definition entertainment content? Our library of
blockbuster entertainment continues to grow and today Xbox 360 owners
will see the kick-off of a strong month of content coming from new
partners like ABC, Disney Channel and MGM.

“LOST” fans looking to catch up on past episodes and find more hidden
clues need look no further than Xbox 360. U. S. Xbox LIVE members will
be able to start downloading TV shows from ABC Television, including

coming month. All episodes will be available in high definition.

The launch of “LOST” coincides with the show’s season premiere today,
with new episodes arriving on Xbox LIVE within 24 hours of airing on TV.
Shows and TV movies from Disney Channel will be launching later this
month as well, including “Hannah Montana,” “High School Musical,” “High
School Musical 2” and “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody,” adding to the
more than 700 episodes of kid-friendly content already available on the
service.

This month will also mark the launch of new releases and classic library
titles from MGM available for download beginning the week of February
18. Additional movies from studios such as Lionsgate, Warner Bros,
Paramount and New Line will also be added to the service, including the
video game documentary “King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters” about two
gamers who battle for the world record score in Donkey Kong. Many films
will be available in high definition.
