Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners will no longer need to maintain a paid Xbox subscription to watch movies on Netflix, TV with Hulu Plus, and popular shows through HBO Go.
Ars Technica also reported that other services would be placed behind the Xbox Live Gold paywall to compensate for the free entertainment apps, but it’s not clear exactly which those will be.
Considering his 360 isn't connected to the net, hence isn't connected to Live, how will the 360 know to display a warning that an update is available? In the case of Halman (who isn't the OP) what you have suggested would work.
Pretty sure it's not, as MS pay licensing fees to use the divx codec, hence the forced download.
Microsoft has also provided the ability to download system software updates from their respective official Xbox website to their PCs and then storage media, from which the update can be installed to the system.
The Xbox 360 game system allows users to download applications that add to the functionality of the dashboard.
The Xbox 360 system software or the Xbox 360 Dashboard is the updateable software and operating system for the Xbox 360.
even if you do managae to install the optional media update – you must be connected to live so microsoft can track what licenses they have to pay for. This is the reason why its a download, they only pay for people who use it, not the millions of systems they sell.
This is the reason why you need to download it from live The OP said he can't connect to Live to download the patch, and was looking for a way to acquire the update on his PC, so he can burn to a DVD and install it that way (like you can with previous system updates).
You cant simply download over a gigabyte to an account. Plug your USB flash drive into a USB port on your computer. Click Save to save the console update file on your computer. If you are using Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7, double-click the file to unzip it.
Why dont you just plug in the cable from your pc real quick?
