What about us in the uk, we get nothing. Always the last to receive anything and we always have to pay the most.

Well duh, Microsoft is American!

Lets take a trip back to the late 1700s to the early 1800s. The Americans became their own country when they seperated from Great Britain because they were being left out. They had no say in what they wanted to do or to happen, and now neither do you and the rest of the UK.

Yay for Canadian education :P

If the Elite is coming to the UK then I'm sure that August onwards,that IPTV will be announced for the UK too.It's just
timing the launch with the movie deals probably takes a while.

Well I just got the latest 360 LIVE reports from the show and
they said Canada and the rest of the World will be following
the IPTV gravy train with the launch of the Elite.
So August it is then...
