New TV content to rush Xbox Live

Xbox 360 owners will see a slew of new video content hitting Xbox Live soon, thanks to the signing of six new content providers.

A%26amp;E Network, ADV Films, National Geographic,, Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment have joined the list of providers to offer HD media via the online download service.

Paramount pictures will offer high-definition versions of Braveheart, Team America: World Police, World Trade Center and one of our favorites, South Park: Bigger, Longer %26amp; Uncut.

In addition, Warner Bros. will make available its 'direct-to-video' movies simultaneously with their DVD release. Sublime and Babylon 5: The Lost Tales will be among the first titles to arrive from the studio.

We're particularly excited about what could come from ADV films, being a massive distributor of Japanese anime.

"With more than 300 games expected by year's end, an Xbox LIVE community of more than 6 million people and a growing catalogue of premium content from some of the biggest names in entertainment today, Xbox 360 is an incredible value," said Microsoft boss, Peter Moore.

"Adding partners and content like this helps reinforce the console's position as the center of connected entertainment in the living room," he added.
