Aging Consoles Finding New Life as Video Streaming Devices

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home News" @ 11:00 AM

"Microsoft's Xbox 360 console is six years old. The Nintendo Wii is five years old, and so is the Sony PlayStation 3. All three are due for an overhaul (can you imagine gaming on a PC that's half a decade old, or more?), and while they're still popular gaming platforms, consoles are really starting to shine as streaming media centers."

Makes sense to me - I have an Xbox 360 and I'm using it for more video streaming that I ever could have guessed a few years ago. Of course, part of that is me living in the USA now, but if I were back in Canada I'd be streaming Netflix off it for sure. Now I also have the option to stream Hulu Plus, among others. If there were only a way to get my Xbox 360 to play ISO or MKV files...then I'd really be a happy guy! Until then, my Boxee Box performs those tasks quite well.

Do you game on your console more than use it for other reasons? Or vice-versa?

"According to a legit-looking scan of the June issue of OXM, Hulu Plus will launch on Xbox 360 on April 29 -- this very Friday."

Hulu Plus is rumored to launch on the Xbox 360 on April 29. OXM also reports that Microsoft will be holding a contest to promote the launch.

Hulu Plus Drops to $7.99/Month, Coming to Roku

"Hulu Plus edges forward with a little bit more news everyday it seems. Recent announcements include the service's availability on the PS3 gaming system and Sony BRAVIA HD television sets. Today's news is that Hulu's subscription television service has lowered its price from $9.99 to $7.99 a month, that it will be available on Roku set-top boxes, and offering a 1-week free trial."

It's interesting to see the Hulu Plus versus Netflix battle shaping up - at the new price of $7.99/month, Hulu Plus is the same price as the Netflix streaming-only package that I have in Canada. I strongly suspect that Netflix is going to offer the exact same plan in the US in early 2011. So the question becomes, for $8/month which service would suit you best? Hulu Plus, along with Netflix, are coming to the Boxee Box, so Roku will have some competition. Are Hulu and Netflix, Roku and Boxee, each going to be the two respective leaders in each space?
