UFC, Dailymotion and more video apps added to Xbox Live

Microsoft has now added a number of new video apps forĀ  Xbox 360 users to download via Xbox Live. One of the big ones is UFC on Xbox Live, allowing MMA fans in the US and Canada to check out a number of video features relating to the Ultimate Fighting Championship, perhaps the most well known of the many MMA leagues in the US.

The biggest feature for the UFC app is that it will allow fans to order the many pay-per-view events the league offers without the need for a cable TV or satellite subscription. The pay-per-view events are, of course, an optional extra and are paid via regular dollars, not Microsoft points.

Other features in the UFC on Xbox Live app include being able to access live events such as press conferences and weigh-ins before the main matches along with interviews and other video features. It even has an interactive fight card where fans can predict winners of upcoming matches with their friends.

Xbox Live has also added the Dailymotion app for download in 34 countries. This video app links to all of the user uploaded videos on the Dailymotion web site. Also added is the Vudu app for US users which offers downloads of a large number of TV shows and feature films from a variety of Hollywood movie studios for rental or purchase.

MSN Video has also been expanded to France while also adding M6 for Xbox 360 users in that country. UK owners can download 4 on Demand as well as Demand 5 video apps and Australian Xbox 360 users can now download ABC iView.

These new video apps are just the latest in a planned series of releases for Xbox Live users. Earlier this month, as part of the big Xbox Dashboard update, Microsoft added a number of new video features for Xbox Live including YouTube, TMZ, MSN and more.
