Microsoft, Xbox, Live, Streaming, Pulp
Joining the ranks of Netflix, Amazon, Apple and other streaming services with exclusive content deals is Microsoft, who today has launched 'Pulp', a British independent comedy film that's been making the round of festivals and will now premiere exclusively on Xbox's Live Video app. While this is likely the start of a new trend, there's no further word from Microsoft about this being a definitive direction for the popular console.
The film is Directed by Adam Hamdy and Shaun Magher and the cast features Jay Sutherland, Gavin Molloy, Simon Burbage, John Thomson, Neil Jennings, Lucy Cudden, Sarah Alexandra Marks, Lee Ravitz.
In the film - Tony Leary, the nice-guy owner of Junk Comics, is gearing up for one last roll of the dice. His new superhero title, The Sodomizer, launches at the British International Comic Show, and nothing will stop Tony from making it a success. Nothing except a gang of Geordie criminals who are using another comic company to launder their dirty money. Tony is drafted by the police to identify the culprits and bring them to justice. Aided by his trusty geek sidekicks, Rick and Keith, Tony must defy the odds if he is to become a real life hero.
