The lights are on
Rumors abound that another tier of Xbox Live will add subscription TV service. Winrumors is reporting that an anonymous source has brought them news of some big changes on the way to Xbox Live. Specifically, Microsoft's E3 press conference is said to have an announcement regarding the new Xbox Live Diamond service, which will add IPTV services to Xbox Live users. According to the report, as of yesterday the deal was still being negotiated, so some of the key features might not be ready to announce by Monday's briefing. Xbox Live Diamond was also a previous program Microsoft introduced to its users in 2005. The card primarily offered retail discounts at various retailers, and the program is no longer active. Rumors have abounded for months regarding Xbox Live's IPTV service. If the rumor is accurate, we'll see Xbox Live Diamond launching this November.

This would be an awesome addition. Really hope it's true.
Interesting. Let's see how it pans out, might enjoy it.
I've always like the old Xbox logo best. For their next console they need to go back to it and just call it an xbox not a 360 or 180 or 720 they're all stupid to me just Xbox
Netflix and tivo work fine for me, but grats to anyone thats looking forward to this.
I've only got Netflix going so I never really watch TV. This service would have to be relatively cheap and offer channels that I actually give a crap about such as Sci-fi and/or G4 for me to even remotely consider it. Also, I still have my Diamond card, lawl.
All I want is for them to redesign the gui its horrible
I don't watch much tv so, i don't think I would buy this. Also, leaving my xbox on for hours make my room hot so if I were going to watch something it would be on something that doesn't create as much heat. This might be useful to some people though. I wonder how much they'll be charging and if you'll be able to pay on a annual or monthly basis.
So basically I'm going to have to pay 120 dollars to watch TV (Year Membership+ Diamond)?
Sounds like it could be a cool thing, I guess we will be hearing more about it at the Microsoft press conference.
If the price is right, this could be an awesome addition.
i'll just stick with gold since i have comcast
