Retailer Target bringing video download service to Xbox 360

New digital video distribution service set for launch in October, claims report

US retailer Target will launch its new video digital distribution service, Target Ticket, in October with Xbox 360 among the list of supported platforms.

According to Variety, the service will launch on October 1 'or possibly sooner', to compete with similar services from the likes of Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy.


Variety reports that the service will be launched for PCs, Macs, 'Microsoft Xbox consoles', iOS, Android devices, and other internet-connected AV devices such as Roku boxes and Samsung smart TVs.

The report says Target aims at having the service launched on every Internet-video device by the end of 2014, which we assume will include PlayStation devices.

Movies on the service are expected to cost between $14.99 and $34.99 each, with a 5 per cent discount offered to Target's RedCard credit and debit card holders.

Microsoft is currently making a push with its new digital music service, Xbox Music, which hit Xbox 360 a year ago and recently launched for iOS and Android devices.
