Microsoft has just announced that eleven new TV and entertainment applications are now available for download from Xbox Live for the Xbox 360 console, following the ones that already appeared last week when the new console dashboard appeared.
The Xbox 360 is being converted into an entertainment hub by Microsoft, so, in order to attract as many customers as possible, the company has been deploying lots of new apps onto Xbox Live designed to attract console owners and supply them all kinds of entertainment.
Quite a lot of services were available on the first day of the new dashboard’s release, December 6, and 11 new ones have just been released by Microsoft for its console.
