Aussies to receive access to ABC iView and SBS on Demand through Xbox Live


Good news for Xbox 360 and ABC/SBS fans – you can now access ABC’s iView and SBS on demand on your Xbox360. Exciting, right?! The addition of the new tv services through Xbox live was announced today following the earlier worldwide announcement from Microsoft detailing new xbox live partnerships with 40 new entertainment providers, including The Daily Motion, Youtube and Crackle.

The full quote from David McLean:

“We have seen success with FOXTEL on Xbox 360 to date with more than 215,000 downloads of the application and expect that Australians will welcome the additional content that ABC iview and SBS ON DEMAND brings. Couple that with the unique experience that comes with Kinect through the wave of a hand and soon to be voice command, we are creating brand new ways for people to interact with their entertainment.”

A good move by Xbox? Or are they simply playing catch up with the PS3? Let us know in the comments section below.
