Now Playing! Xbox Live Marketplace Video Store Comes to Canada

I know that everyoneís been excited to hear any news on the very popular Video Store on Xbox Live Marketplace coming to Canada, and Iíve got the lowdown for you! I was able to track down Scott Nocas, Global Marketing Manager, Xbox LIVE with Microsoft in Redmond, and ask him some questions about what Canadians can expect ...

Jade: Okay, Scott ... hereís the question thatís been on everyoneís mind: When will Canadians be able to download content from the Video Store on Xbox Live Marketplace?

Scott: It goes live at 12:01a.m. PST on December 11th!

Jade: Thatís such exciting news! Nice to see that Microsoft was able to get Canadians the Video Store before the end of Fall. Now, I know a lot of people expected that the Video Store would be launching in Canada with the Fall Update ... how come the launch is a week later?

Scott: We pushed it back because we thought that the service was big enough to deserve its own launch, and we wanted to make sure we tested everything and had it all ready so you had a great experience when you try it. Right away at launch, youíll be able to download to your heartís content.

Jade: Ah, that makes a lot of sense! Well, now that we know itís coming on December 11th ... what will be available to Canadians at launch?

Scott: Weíre going to have the same number of movies at launch in Canada that we had in the U.S. at launch. We have movies from Warner Bros., Maple Pictures and MPI. Weíre going to have movies such as 300, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Oceanís 13, The Reaping, Delta Farce, Air Guitar Nation and Texas Chainsaw Massacre to name just a few.

It is also coming to the UK and parts of Europe on the 11th http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/news-features/news/Video-Marketplace-announcement-041207.htm
