XBox Live Gold members will now have the ability to watch more on demand programming with the addition of three new services: xfinity TV, HBO go, and MLB.TV.

Xfinity is an on-demand television service from Comcast, that brings your favorite TV and movies to the XBox. Kinect users can search using voice commands or controll the screen with a wave of their hand.

HBO Go brings the HBO catalogue of movies and original programming to the XBox. Users can watch The Game of Thrones or the Sopranos right from there XBox, using their Kinect to voice search or browse through titles.

MLB.TV provides live and on-demand games to XBox users, who have the ability to watch two games at once with Split Screen. MLB.TV offers Kinect compatibility just like the others.

    I just found out this past Christmas that it costs to be a Gold member of XBOX live. I was surprised that my fiancée had been paying for this every year, but if XBOX is continually adding perks like HBO GO then I really don’t have much room to complain. We tested it out last night since we subscribe to HBO through DISH (gotta love my Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones) and it was like opening up our own personal movie rental store, except that we can watch the titles free. I did find out though from a co-worker at DISH that Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Frontier subscribers don’t have access to HBO GO on XBOX, it’s really a shame.
