Last time I was there, you had to pay a £120 yearly tv licence, for what was essentially 2 channels , BBC1/2, not sure if it´s still the case , but that was rough.

Do you currently get any channels with the gold membership ?

So is this watch on demand or just life TV? I don't see what is so special about watching these channels on your xbox if you are already a subscriber and have these channels through your regular cable box. Am I missing something here? Are you getting channels you wouldn't have had otherwise? You still have to pay for that $50 Gold membership on top of your cable bill.

Can someone explain what is beneficial to an average TWC end user?

Ideally this is something FOR people with Xbox and Xbox Live Gold. You guys make it sound like somebody is going to subscribe to TWC then go and buy a 360 + Gold membership to watch it.....

MS just added functionality to the Xbox and you guys find a way to bash it...simply because it doesn't apply to you. Might as well bash those games that support 3D and 7.1 surround sound since it doesn't benefit me....

EDIT:

To add to this and why MS is focusing on their other multimedia features.....

These deals are setup for the already XBL gold owner to benefit from, not to make some person want to actually go buy an xbox for this only.

Go to friends house with your XBL account and watch tv...can't do that with your cable box can you?

Basically what is happening is cable companies are now figuring that since people are always on the go now with mobile devices they are getting away from the coax cable only/set top box only market. Most people have internet, mobile devices, and some type of gaming device, might as well keep the money flowing adding services that use those devices over the old seto top box standard.
