I was just woundering why can't I watch A/P on either my on demand cable or watch it on the xbox live video market place. These movies are popular, so is it something with 20c fox?

Fox is a staunch Sony partner at the moment in the format wars.. which doesn't make a whole lot of sense since they are direct competitors :P  That may be why you don't see the A/P movies on Microsoft's console at the time being.

Hmmm, Maybe Fox is coming around.

Fox Joining Xbox Family

from the article:

Microsoft has signed up Fox as the newest partner for its Xbox Live Video Marketplace, and the two are launching with "Family Guy," a show aimed squarely at the service's young male gamer demo.
Video Marketplace, which allows Xbox 360 owners to download movies and TV shows via the vidgame console's Internet connection, already has films from Warner Bros., Paramount, Lionsgate and New Line and TV shows from CBS, NBC Universal and MTV Networks. Some content is available in high-def, making it the only Internet videostore offering HD downloads.

Deal likely marks the first step in a broader relationship between Fox and Microsoft to distribute TV shows and films.
