Xbox Live upgrading to 'Zune Video' Xbox Live will transform into Zune Video next week, allowing Xbox 360 owners to stream HD movies and TV episodes rather than having to download them before playback is available.
Alongside the video upgrades will come social networking features from Facebook, Twitter and Last.fm. All the features were announced at this year's E3 event, but with no timetable.

Xbox Live general manager Marc Whitten made the announcement yesterday, bringing an end to the months of speculation. The service will change on November 17th.

Additionally, Zune Video will offer a larger catalog of 1080p HD films, an upgrade from the current 720p collection.
