We’ve spent a lot of time waiting for Microsoft to drop all of the video apps they promised we’d be seeing on Xbox 360 and slowly but surely the list is getting longer. One of the newest additions to the apps marketplace will hook us up with a bunch of free movie rentals while the other gives us access to some not-so free streaming entertainment.
Crackle is loved by many for delivering a bunch of movies and TV shows at no cost. The selection isn’t really that great, but if you’re stuck inside on a rainy Sunday its always nice to have the streaming option without having to spend any of your hard-earned bucks. Best Buy’s CinemaNow on the other hand is going to make you break out the wallet if you want to get your digital stream on, but they totally make up for it by having a lot more to choose from, including new releases.
While we’re happy to see these apps finally make their way to our lovely home consoles there’s still something missing – HBO Go. I’m a huge fan of the streaming service HBO provides, letting users watch every episode of every series they have put out in recent years, but I’m really getting tired of the wait. What’s the hold up guys? All I want to do is watch Game of Thrones (again) through my Xbox, is that asking too much?
