If you remember back in June it was heavily rumoured that Microsoft would be releasing news about Xbox Live TV, which would coincide with the new Dashboard release, and if you also remember there was no news on this during the Microsoft press conference.

It was said to be that the announcement was postponed so that Microsoft could try to seal a deal with more companies to set the ball in motion, and today Microsoft has finally released the huge list of companies that will be taking part in the deal.

A total of 50 world-leading TV and entertainment partners have joined Xbox 360 to bring a whole host of new entertainment to your living room, and one of the major ones especially for anybody is England is that Microsoft and the BBC have now managed to secure a deal that helps bring what were guessing is the iPlayer to your 360.

Most of the companies that have signed on are listed in the above image, so what do you think of all this, are you looking forward to it?

Is it known whether ALL channels are available to everyone? Like us U.K residents, will we recieve the channels from the states? and vice versa? Because we don't get the likes of Netflix do we? Or is that about to change? Gaah.. so many questions lol. By the looks of the list, im defo looking forward to the Manga Channel, syfy, HBO GO and disney XD.. maybe not so much the last one lol, if it was the ACTUAL Disney channel then maybe ;)

Although i'm looking forward to it, i hardly ever use the Sky Player, and we pretty much have most of the channels minus sports on our home subscription, so in actual fact i'm wondering whether i will really use this? Hmmm lol. We'll see :D
Only channels the UK are getting as far as we know are bbc, channel 4 and 5 and lovefilm, and no unfortunatly not, we will not be getting any american channels or others which sucks. I was looking forward to the UFC channel but again we get shafted.

At E3 last year they said the world over owuld get ESPN, did we no just the americans in the end.

This year they said we would all get the UFC did we. nope

Ill wait for it all to appear before i judge it though.. could be ok.. am definately gonna grieve over the Manga channel not being there though :( Dammet!! -_-
From Darkwings research on the Manga Channel, it appears the channel is actually based in france, but will be a US only release. So yea go figure ha
