Can someone explain what is beneficial to an average TWC end user?
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.Edited by benben84 - 6/28/13 at 10:26am
