Shane Kim, head of Microsoft’s game studio, wants to “open” up the Xbox 360 platform like it did with the Netflix service. Rather than focusing on quantity, their plan is to integrate high quality content such as the Hulu and Youtube streaming services.

I think this is an awesome idea since it’ll open up a host of FREE, high quality online content. Think about it: watch your favorite TV broadcasts via Hulu, peruse the latest and greatest on Youtube, or catch a favorite flick on Netflix. If this becomes a reality my cable service, along with any social life, will go on the chopping block.
