    I do

    I run a LAN cable through to my Xbox and watch TV episodes and movies on it.

    They use some POS Windows Media Center thing and it freakin blows. The UI is terrible, it doesnt always load every file in my videos folder and it often takes 5-10 minutes to load.

    It used to be a file browers just like in windows explorer but they changed it and now it sucks.

    Regardless though, I still use it because its better watching Game of Thrones on a 42" instead of 26."

        Is this restricted to just Xbox or would you like replies for all console platforms?
        I assume this relates to your book E-male? The gaming console is fast becoming the central hub for entertainment systems. Look at what Microsoft announced for the Xbox at E3 with them expanding the capabilities of the platform so it can now interact with all your devices (iPhone/android) through apps. The fact that Xbox doesn't have bluray isn't a concern to most people as you already discovered from your previous threads, as the age of the digital download is well and truly upon us. I prefer to stream than to go to the DVD store,pay 10 dollars for a bluray and then return it. I think with the next iteration of the Xbox we are going to see more advanced streaming features built in as well, such as AC wireless network compliancy(Gigabit wireless).
