Napster, Absolute Radio, AOL apps coming to Xbox Live

And Internet Explorer, but only for Gold subscribers.

The new roster of entertainment brands varies from country to country - the full list lies below.

Internet Explorer for Xbox is also on the way, although only for Gold subscribers.

Xbox's entertainment offering will be bolstered further by Xbox SmartGlass and Xbox on Windows 8.
