    I've only just checked the video side of marketplace so im not sure how long the video downloads have been there, im sure it was empty when the Update was done.. but you can now download HD films to rent, such as 300, matrix and harry potter, some are in HD and SD

    You just beat me to it Pete! I've just read the latest e-mailed newsletter sent today.....

    VIDEO STORE

    Xbox 360 is pleased to announce the arrival of on-demand movies which you can download straight to your console. All you need is a broadband connection and then the Xbox LIVE Marketplace Video Store is yours to explore.

    We're launching with a line-up to suit all tastes that includes recent blockbuster successes like "300" and "TMNT" alongside classics such as "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" and "The Matrix" - all brought to you in both HD and SD. Over 25 must-see movies are easily accessible from the Xbox 360 dashboard, available in Standard and High Definition.

    With new movies being added every week, check back regularly for content updates and enjoy the show!

    Video downloads last 14 days. They are for rental only.


    So I assume it launched today.

    Leave it on overnight load Pete. Did you know there is a console setting where you can have the console download when it's off? You enable it, and if you have an active download in progress you can still turn the console off and it goes into a standby mode - fans still run in slow speed - and the console still downloads. Everything else turns off. When it finishes it turns off the console.

    Yep, just browsing the films - also saw that Halo 3 pack so I'll set that off downloading too.

    The prices aren't too bad. A recent film like 300 is only 360 points (£3.06) for the standard def version (no point in getting the HD version as no HD TV yet - waiting for technologies to sort themselves out first) so less than a rental from a shop. HD version is £4.60 so dearer than a DVD rental. Think I might just buy that and watch it another day.

    The older films are only a couple of quid. You get 14 days to watch them from download before they expire, or 24 hours once you start to watch them.

    The range of titles is pretty poor. Logging in with my USA account there is tons more stuff to get.

    But better late than never.
