4oD and Demand Five Now Available on Xbox 360

By Gary Cutlack on at

Microsoft has come through with its promise to deliver a few UK-themed catch-up channels for those who do their TV watching through Xbox 360, with archive content from both Channel 4 and Five now available.

As well as the new 4oD and Demand Five options, there's also a global Dailymotion app now available for all Xbox 360 users around the world, plus ABC iView for Australians, France's M6 and a UFC channel for the US and Canada.

Meanwhile, those waiting for the BBC's iPlayer to arrive on the console are being given a general "early 2012" date from Microsoft, which will also be launching custom VEVO, Crackle and Screenrush apps for us around the same time. [Major Nelson via Techradar]
