Xbox + movies

The Next Net: Xbox 360 to Offer Video Downloads: "The Xbox is already connected to owners' TVs, so it's a pretty obvious move. " The post goes on to say Verizon and AT&T could start distributing xbox to anyone who signs up for their IPTV services. There are still a few technical issues to resolve before this is becomes real. The one I can see at this time is the XBox can pull data from a media center but it can't push to it. I think it's important to push because the xbox doesn't have the hard disk space or the video capture to allow for an experience that would be comparable to the plain old PVR one can get nowadays. Thumbs down to this one for now.
