        Love this idea, the whole reason I came to this site. Enjoy the Amazon.com video streaming subscription service but purchase all my movies from Xbox. Would love to Xbox with the best of both worlds. Another feature I like on Amazon video service is the ability to add a movie to your watch list whether you own it or not.

        100% agree. This is a necessary carasteristica the truth. Even be able to join various Rubik type Xbox Music, Xbox Video and Xbox Gold. I paid happy, now leaves more profitable other app like for example Wuaki.TV

        +1 Agree now :D

        Wow, buying certain channels that we want instead of the bundled crape Sky (UK) gives us would make the One a mega valuable purchase.

        It would be so perfect if I could simply purchase Sky Atlantic (UK version of HBO), Syfy, Sky 1 and the other channels I watch shows from.

        On demand is the future, MS needs to get on this immediately.

        This is the one of the biggest things I really, really want for XBOX Video. It's a great service, really like what you have going. But would love to see a Subscription model that was the same as your Music model. One payment gives you access to all content. I recognize this formula would be a hard one to get, because no one in the industry currently has it. Usually, it's subscription gets you some stuff (mostly older or unpopular) and you have to rent/buy stuff that is new. But I would love to see something very similar to the XBOX Music setup. Simply pay one fee, have access to all, and ability for offline viewing to boot (like I can with XBOX Music on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8). It would be a killer model, but even if you couldn't do that and could only do a model similar to Redbox Instant (subscription/rent/buy), I would be game for that as well. The streaming is top notch, even on my lousy home connection which often runs between 200-500kbps.

        man if you guys could give us feeds to only the channels we want. like an a la carte cable it would truly make the One stand out. I'd jump right on HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Nat Geo, Discovery, SyFy, and probably a few more. It'd have to be WAY less than cable/sat fees for subscribing per channel to the premiums though. Something on the order of $1-3/channel... GenNuWine makes a good point to, if you added video to the $20/mo music pass we'd sign up, both of these ideas would need to be shareable within the family though. not per gamertag like it is now. so that anyone with the right login info can stream to their phone, computer, or xbox signed in as themselves.

        Ouch @ $20 a month, and doesn't matter. A subscription would be nice but I'd like to have it combined. I'm not aware of anyone offering a subscription that includes music and video. I already have a music pass, adding video to it would be great. Kind of like Amazon did with Prime. I got it for the 2 day shipping and then later I was able to start watching movies, TV shows, and had free online storage space. If Amazon can add to a service I'm already paying for, I'm sure Microsoft can also. :-)

        That would be very great! Like the Xbox Music Pass you should do a Xbox Video Pass. Flatrate for all Movies and Series! If I can watch the newest Episodes of my favorite series I would pay 20$ / Month :D Doesn't matter!
