They can track heart beat and facial expression data, that's insanely powerful stuff for big networks investing all that money into their programs. They are going to have studies on your reactions to targeted TV commercials, etc. You sign an agreement for free content or a discount on a game, and boom MS starts selling off your facial expressions during programming. Stuff is going to be worth fortunes.
You will continue to see shows (like House of Cards and others) become exclusives on things like Netflix and other streamable TV/Video applications, but there won't be any TV shows that are exclusive to the XBOX. Why would anyone want to limit themselves to the amount of viewers they can get? How would they adequately predict the target audience for a show based on one set of viewers alone?
