Battlestar Galactica Story-Recap Available on Xbox Live MarketplaceS

Starting now, you can download the Season 1 and 2 recap video of Battlestar Galactica, which fills you in on Seasons 1 and 2 and gears you up for the start of Season 3 in October. When we were at E3, we grilled the Xbox Live guys for an answer on whether they were ever going to bring high definition entertainment—movies, TV shows— to the Xbox Live Marketplace for download. They've already got their infrastructure there, plus, people actually enjoy watching content in HD. Our questions were met with a "probably not" and a non-committal "we'll see".

But with this addition to XBLM, Microsoft is finally warming up to the distribution of high-def content via Marketplace. Their main worry was that videos would take too long to download and clog up their already small 20GB hard drive. If there were any way to save these onto your computer, say, transferred through Ethernet, that would really free up some space. We think there will definitely be more HD entertainment content coming our way through the Xbox 360 soon.

Now if you'll excuse me, it's time to go fanboy all over this video.
