Disney-ABC will sell TV shows on Xbox Live
This move is yet another step in putting a ubiquitous entertainment console in the living room. Not that this is a bad thing. Some of the content will be available in HD, despite the fact that Microsoft is not offering HD-DVD in the console. Maybe they're going Blu-ray?
So, the gamers out there have a reason to get excited. After playing an invigorating game of Call of Duty, they can then relax to an episode of Hannah Montana. The mind reels at the possibilities.
Having these shows available may even help with sales of the XBox. Between the video games and the kid's shows, it's practically a stand-in babysitter.
