Microsoft has worked hard to turn the Xbox 360 into more than just a gaming platform since the game console launched. The software giant has done a very good job and many people use the Xbox 360 as much for streaming media, such as TV shows, movies, and audio, as they use it for playing games. The Xbox 360 now has a new digital movie platform available via Xbox LIVE.
Popcornflix has announced that its application is now available on the Xbox 360. Xbox 360 users do have to have an Xbox LIVE membership to be able to stream movies from the platform. Popcornflix is a free movie streaming platform with content supported by ads.
The streaming movie service has full-length movies, but almost all of those films are what most would consider "B" grade or independent. The company does have films with some popular actors available for streaming including Brad Pitt, Kristen Stewart, Alec Baldwin, Angelina Jolie, and Ryan Reynolds. The streaming movie company also promises to add 30 to 40 new feature-length films to the channel each month.
Popcornflix also notes that it will be launching exclusive movies specifically for Xbox viewers. Xbox 360 users that have a Kinect motion control sensor connected to the console can also navigate the movie service application using the sound of their voice and gestures. Xbox 360 users can download the app for the new movie service right now.
