Soon 35 films from Disney will become available in high-definition quality on Microsoft's Xbox Live service:
The high-definition movies will be available to U.S. subscribers of Microsoft's Xbox Live, said Peter Moore, a corporate vice president in Microsoft's entertainment and devices division, which is responsible for the Xbox business.
The agreement with Disney-ABC Domestic Television will also allow Xbox 360 owners to rent films on demand as they become available from Walt Disney Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, Miramax Films and Hollywood Pictures.
Xbox Live already offers movies and television shows from more than two dozen other content providers, the company said.
The service has more than 7 million members, a figure that will hit 10 million by June, Moore said a news conference.
