I have HBO but my cable company doesn't support HBO GO. So I'm hoping the xbox will.
I already use my xbox for Hulu Plus, Netflix, and ESPN
I have been look all over the place to see how the HBO G0 is going to work. As of right now they have to verify your subscription through the cable company and not all are supported so I really hope they have another way around it for the xbox.
I'm a little undecided on this at the moment. It's a good idea, yeah, but when you add up your XBL subscription, then a Netflix subscription, Hulu + subscription, ect it ends up being as much or more than just paying for regular TV. I guess we'll see, lol.
Let the Chaos begin...

Such A F*cking Lady & A Pretty Hate Machine
| Something wicked this way comes... |
I'm not interested in preserving the status quo; I want to destroy it...

...Because everyone needs a little Chaos in their life.
The thing is though... I have all these subscriptions regardless (xbl, netflix, hbo). So being able to access the services through my xbox is just another Plus, with no additional cost.
The additional cost is really the Gold subscription, which I believe is outdated. The fact that I can use those other services in one place should only be an incentive for me to buy and use the system, not an excuse to pay more.
Other then playing games i only use Netflix and Youtube you got achievements for watching movies like on netflix 100G for watching 100 Movie/Tv episodes
Are you saying there are achievements for watching netflix or you "wish" there were?
I am saying i wish there where achievements for watching movies and stuff . achievements for watching 25-100-1000-1000+ movies.even thow it will never happen
dont care about tv on my xbox. i have it to play games. plus tv sucks now. alll comercials
Not hugely bothered about TV on my xbox, I have a laptop for that.
I voted Is Xbox TV give my Xbox the Red Ring? Because it is so funny
