    you can follow the drama here:xbox video title on WP8 device - Microsoft Community

    Seems like they have no plans to add it unless we...ummm ask for it..... %)

    Hello Everyone,
    We have published a KB around this error for Video Playback. You can find the KB here:
    Error when syncing or playing video files on Windows Phone 8

    In short, here is the answer from the KB:
    Windows Phone 8 does not currently support playback of rented or purchased content from the Xbox Video Store. If you'd like to see this feature added, you can go to the Windows Phone Feature Suggestions website and make requests for future releases.

    To learn more about how to play videos, go to the Play music, video, and podcasts page on the Windows Phone 8 How-to website.
    Thank you,
    Eli A.

    Joe Belfiore should be fired. Since 2010 he is unable to delivery a finished piece of software or at least provide a roadmap explaining when we could expect new features.
    We basically served 2 years as a "beta testers" on WP7 for nothing as WP8 is still unfinished and even worse in many aspects compared to WP7.

    Video - - Rent or buy the latest HD* movies and TV shows on your tablet, PC, TV or phone. And with Xbox Video you get instant-on HD to start watching right away. Xbox makes it easy to watch what you love wherever you are.**

    **Coming Autumn 2012. Content from Xbox Video Store. Broadband internet and compatible devices required. To watch on Windows Phone, sync content from compatible PC. See
