Xbox Dashboard Update: I know, I know. it’s a bit of a dull topic but this one’s a biggie. Some time in late November, Xbox Live will bring a whole crapload of TV and film streaming services to your console.

Check out the details on but be warned – a lot of those services are US-only. UK gamers will get Channel 4, Channel 5, BBC, Sky, LOVEFiLM, MSN, YouTube, Blinkbox, Sky and Muzu as well as some other services but we’ve no real details on pricing yet :\
