Swedish movie service Headweb takes another step towards its vision of being available on all connected media devices. In affiliation with Microsoft and the Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, it was announced that a Headweb app will shortly come to Xbox 360.

An easy to use experience combined with a vast selection of movies on a broad range of devices has been the strategy for Headweb when developing new apps. This strategy is one explanation to why the service consequently is appointed “Best Swedish film service” year after year*.

–      We are looking forward to launch the Xbox app soon, reveals Peter Alvarsson, CEO of Headweb.  This is our first service especially targeted towards families and the broad gaming community. With the Headweb app on Xbox, movie watching becomes just as easy and entertaining as it should be.

With a few quick thumb presses the user has easy access to a comprehensive catalogue of movies and TV-series. There are some 7000 titles available and everything from brand-new blockbusters to local titles, old classics and documentaries can be found. To use the service the user needs an internet connection and an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription.

Microsoft is also happy with the new partnership. With Headweb the number of movies available on Xbox LIVE is multiplied, making the service even more attractive to end-users.

-       Xbox 360 together with Xbox LIVE offers something for everyone, and with Headweb we are taking an important step towards the total entertainment experience. For those who are already connected to Xbox LIVE, a huge selection of movies will be made available, and since it’s built on a dedicated app, the entire movie library is accessible from day one, says Mattias Rosenkvist, product marketing manager for Xbox 360 at Microsoft. Headweb is an ideal content partner for us, that really shows that Xbox is about more than games, and offers the entire family even more entertainment in the same package.
