Watch CinemaNow movies on an Xbox 360

Good news for Xbox 360 owners unsatisfied with the video offerings on Xbox Live Marketplace. CinemaNow has issued an update that lets customers download and watch movies on an Xbox 360. Up until now, the movie and TV download service was only available to PC users.
You'll still need a PC to download movies. But if your Xbox 360 is plugged into your home network, CinemaNow's Media Manager software will recognize it. That means while the movie will still be sitting on your PC, you can stream it over your network to your Xbox for viewing on your television set.
Nothing too revolutionary there, except that CinemaNow has a library of over 7,000 videos, some of which you will not be able to access from the Xbox Marketplace.
