Now we've got our Elites when are we going to get a proper video marketplace so we can start making use of all that extra space? Any news about that anyone?

Cheers

I have a us live account and can browse the marketplace but if I try and download anything it tells me my location is invalid.

IPTV is not the same thing as video marketplace - marketplace is downloading video from Microsoft's marketplace, and when it's done, you watch it. IPTV is streaming video on demand from your ISP.

We already have the technical capability to use the video marketplace, no update necessary, we just need the green light from the lawyers. I heard later this year was likely, like autumn time.

IPTV is likely to be trailed at Christmas time at the earliest by BT Vision in the UK.

Thanks guys, looks like we'll just have to wait and see then. They'd better deliver on this though as it was one of the main reasons I upgraded to the elite

I know but i'm sure Microsoft want to launch them both over here soon.

They said they wouldn't realease the Elite until the Video marketplace was near ready to launch so i think November seems likely
