Zune the video app on Xbox are selling separate episodes of family guy for 300MSP each! It's terrible! So if you want 6 episodes of family guy it costs 1800MSp you could get a whole season of family guy for that price! What do you guys think?

Zune's always been a ripoff. Where have you been the last 4-5 years?

Of all the apps the only one I ever used was YouTube and didn't use it that much. They're all pretty useless to me.

Agreed. I tried to be positive about all the dashboard changes and additions, but for me its all useless crap.

I was curious, I hadn't been on Zune for ages but I saw family guy advertised so I had a look.

Zune has always been a rip off. I only stick with streaming services that work on multiple devices like my tv and bluray players anyways and zune only works on microsoft products so I don't even bother with it except to watch trailers.

More importantly, why the hell are you trying to watch Family Guy?

No, you don't think it is.

well said. That kinda reminds me of iTunes at least music wise. iTunes totally overcharges for songs, so I rarely use it. I guess netflix would be the way to go.

If it's worth it, then why complain about the price?

I said the price was bad and it's not worth it. :/ I have the episodes on DVD I was just looking through Zune...

These posts on here get dumber and more pointless every day.. This is almost as bad as the guy who was wondering if the Spetsnaz faction will be in blops 2... like who cares? is anyone really gonna buy or not buy that game over a damn faction?

And everything is over priced on Zune.. its MS! just like the overpriced crap xbox..

I would recommend Netflix.. You could watch all the family guys in probably 1 month if you have alot of free time.. Actually, you could probably get the free trial as well and watch instant streaming.

You say who cares but a lot of people might, your opinion doesn't count for everyone's dude.

Since when was it "the law" to buy them from Zune?

Oh come on! If you are going to attempt to troll, at least do it intelligently.

If it's cheaper to buy the whole season, why not just buy it?

.

I just noticed this post...

It could mean everything to a country let alone a person

There's beliefs when it comes into a single person

Then there's the examples of Russia and Germany, both banning cod games due to them being the bad guy within the games.

So yes having a faction in a game as a bad guy or generally can make or break it for some people, or a country

You think the app is bad on the Xbox 360? Try using Zune on your PC to browse for music, videos or just apps for your Windows phone.

The first time I entered Zune I almost thought it was a bad joke. I mean sure it's nothing new for a company to completely rely on the stupidity of it's user base, but Zune is just ridiculous.

I browsed Zune for all of 2 minutes and couldn't justify paying the extortionate prices. Anyway, I like physical copies of my music and DVD's.

As for Samigi, he's using Family Guy as an example of the over priced system. So no its not worth it, but only because of the price to a fan. I'm a fan of Family Guy, but at that price, not a chance. I have seasons 1-7 and I've only paid 15 for the box sets. I'm not being ripped off just for being a fan of a tv show.

As for comments hating on FG, is it really necessary to start flaming it to cause an internet war? Really? Is this how everyone gets there kicks here? I know the news page gets its fair share, but seriously, leave it. Opionions are entitled, but when its a comment that's not relevant, what's the point?

I use Zune alot to watch new releases, it is a convenient way to watch new films in HD and it isn't much difference in price to going to the store (if you can find one) to rent it on bluray.

I would never buy a movie, I'd ratehr than the disc for that.

Personally Netflix (here in the UK) seems to be full of really old films that you could probably pick up for 5p on DVD, LOVEFILM however do seem to be getting better and they have much more recent titles coming on stream so I use that too.

Because it is a good show.
