Crackle is Sony's free movie and TV streaming service and CinemaNow is the movie and TV rental/purchase service. The Crackle catalog is small but CinemaNow's is significant.

Microsoft has been making significant investments into its Xbox Live service over the past year, in an effort to turn it into an entertainment "powerhouse." The service now offers, besides gaming, live streaming TV, video and music.

I would love to see them concentrate more on building video games or a dedicated video game console. I don't care much for an all-in-one media center. If on-demand stuff is free I would watch it, if the selection is good. I'm not really one for buying digital stuff that I have to pay for that I can't tangibly hold.
