Xbox Live Getting Cable Television

Xbox Live Television
Starting Tuesday Microsoft Xbox Live will allow you to watch many different mainstream television programming. Using the Kinect, you will be able to search for shows using your voice and hand gestures. Later this month, Microsoft will start adding dozens of other sources of programming, including Verizon FiOS, Comcast’s XFinity, and HBO. As for the few video services Xbox Live has had, including Netflix and Hulu Plus, will be able to use voice searching and other methods. Microsoft’s deal with cable providers stops short of being able to get rid of traditional television, you will still need to pay the cable providers to get the channels on the Xbox. You will, of course, have to pay $60 a year for a Gold membership to Xbox Live.
