Notable Xbox Video Freebies, Discounts, New Additions, etc.

Not sure how many "deals" threads we can support, but I thought I'd start one since this is a great deal that I haven't seen from other services. Strike Back, the Cinemax "24 for the TV-MA crowd" series, has its first two episodes for free. I got hooked and ended up buying the BD set because I think it has high rewatchability.

Also free: The pilots for the upcoming shows The New Normal, The Mindy Project, and Ben & Kate (not sure it makes sense to link here since you'll watch through your console, though you can buy from Xbox.com).

Thanks. And I like the Marketplace links, as I'm apt to forget to purchase them on the Xbox later.

Cool. I didn't know they had some free videos. I grabbed the two Strike Back episodes. Thanks for the links.

Makes sense--I added them for the sitcoms.

Yeah, a lot of the content (like the sitcoms but not Strike Back) you'll find on other services, but it's easier for me to watch Xbox content on my TV than iTunes content.

First four episodes of The Mob Doctor are free. Can't say that sounds very promising for the show.

Re: Notable Xbox Video Freebies, Discounts, New Additions, etc.

HBO TV Sampler: One episode from six different shows for 320 points (HD, or 240 SD), or $2.99 if you're on Windows 8 with currency. Some of the single episodes are 320 points by themselves so this is a good deal.

Rome
The Sopranos
Eastbound and Down
Boardwalk Empire
The Wire
True Blood

Re: Notable Xbox Video Freebies, Discounts, New Additions, etc.

Don't know if anyone noticed but in the last XBOX update, the XBOX Movie section (Formerly Zune?)now tells you which apps have whatever you're trying to watch. This helps if you're looking for the app that has the same thing for FREE. I've gotten burned and lost points by not checking other apps.
