    Hopefully it also boosts the speed at which videos load on the console that are started via Smartglass.

      that could just be a network speed issue. I haven’t used it myself but have you tried on more than one network? I mean are you on data or wifi in the wireless device?

        Well, I’ve got a 35/35 mb/s FiOS connection, so I don’t think it’s slow internet speed. When starting a movie from my desktop (wired gigabit) to my primary Xbox 360 (also wired), start speed for an HD movie is about a minute. The majority of that time is just spent loading the Xbox Video app on the Xbox 360. Launching from my Surface (obviously wireless) is about the same time.

        Things do seem a bit speedier after the update, which is good.
