Until recently the only show available for Australians on the Xbox LIVE Zune service was The Guild. Now, seemingly overnight, the Zune video service has sort of exploded with new content -- with high quality shows such as Arrested Development, Futurama and The Walking Dead now available.
According to Microsoft Australia, this is just the beginning. It still doesn't consider the product to have fully launched yet, and will be adding more shows throughout the next couple of months.
"Zune Video on Xbox LIVE is happy to have launched a new transactional TV service in Australia," said a Microsoft spokesperson. "Currently we are working on making as much content as possible available before our full launch. Please check back later in the month, when we will be fully launching the service with many new shows and networks."
The shows currently available on Xbox LIVE in Australia are...
- 24 - American Dad - American Horror Story - Arrested Development - Big Bang Theory - Bob's Burgers - Bones (Fox) - Breaking Bad - Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Built to Shred - Burn Notice - Chuck - Cleveland Show, The - Community - Damages - Family Guy - Firefly - Fringe - Futurama - Glee - Homeland - How I Met Your Mother - It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Killing, The - King of the Hill (Fox) - Lie to Me - Modern Family - My Name is Earl - Prison Break - Rescue Me - Sanctuary - Sons of Anarchy - Spartacus: Blood and Sand - Supernatural - Walking Dead, The - Wilfred - X-Files, The
A pretty magnificent start to be honest, and a really pleasant surprise to find all this new content on LIVE.
