    Xbox 360 to get subscription video

    Reuters is reporting that Microsoft is about to launch a video subscription service for the XBox 360. Nobody knows exactly how this will work yet and Microsoft has several options. The first one is to become a virtual cable operator and charge for bundles of channels. This is an established model that networks are familiar with. There’s also the possibility to create one app per channel, a little bit like what Roku does. Let’s not forget that Hulu+ is coming to an Xbox 360 near you as well.

    At the very least, Microsoft will get what other platforms already have: apps like Hulu or Netflix and a revenue cut.
