Microsoft has always said that it wants its 360 console to be a true media centre for the home. Its already common for Xbox Live users in America to be able to download TV shows onto their console, yet it is still only a dream for European gamers.
However, that dream has taken a step closer to becoming reality today, as Microsoft has confirmed that it is in talks with several European media companies- most noticably the BBC. Hopefully this means it wont be long before the service is available on both sides of the Atlantic.
The Times Online reports that Ross Honey, senior director for media at Microsoft’s content and partner strategy group, confirmed the company had spoken to the BBC and several other European media companies.
“We are working diligently on multiple fronts to make it happen,” he said. “The BBC is a great content provider.”
