Americans, it’s time to celebrate once again, as your Xbox Live Video Marketplace is about to be updated with a whole host of new content that will surely appeal to a wide variety of people. There’s even some free content from the 13th March to the 20th.
The premier episode of Lewis Black: Root of All Evil on Comedy Central will be made available free for one week, giving people the chance to get a taste of what is to come in later shows. Robot Chicken: Star Wars will be made available from the week starting 4th March, which is the whole series. It becomes available a whole two months before the DVD release. New episodes of South Park are on their way as of the 10th March, as well as Afro Samurai starring Samuel L. Jackson for Anime fans, which is exclusively available in High Definition on the Xbox Live service (there’s no Standard Definition version for this).
For the kids, there will soon be Nancy Drew: Drew’s Clues. Two versions of this will be released; the theatrical version which is what you should have seen in the cinema, and an interactive version, which will flash up questions and clues for the kiddies to interact with throughout the film. An excellent way to involve them, all the while still making it fun. The ABC Family network will also be launching in March, bringing Kyle XY and Greek to the service from the 10th March onwards. There’s the first season of Hannah Montana to look forward to too, as well as the first season of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody from the Disney Channel, starting from the 24th March. ABC will also be bringing seasons 1 and 2 of Greyâ€™s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives, hitting on the 10th March.

Be sure to let us know what you’re looking forward to for next month.
