Here’s a list of video content providers coming to Xbox Live tomorrow

Starting tomorrow, Microsoft will be launching the new Xbox Dashboard, and with it will come a whole host of new video content for you to peruse, so sorting out what’s what may be intimidating at first. Fortunately for you, we’ve got the lowdown on what all the first wave of video content will include.

Several countries will be getting at least something in terms of video content in the first wave, but the majority of it is exclusive to the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada and so on.
