Fantastic news today, we’re getting another video marketplace in Australia.. this time on Xbox. After Microsoft’s E3 keynote announcement that they were extending their video marketplace to markets around the world, it was unclear if Australia would be on that list. The good news is that we are !!

Current on-demand video stores include iTunes and Blockbuster On Demand are both only DVD quality. 1080p with 5.1 surround sound will certainly chew through the bandwidth so look to ISPs (Internode get on this..) to offer downloads unmetered.

Australia Xbox On Demand 1080p

The video store will be available later this year. Does this mean we’ll see an Australian ZuneHD launch as well ??
