It’s Official: Television comes to Xbox

A new panel on Xbox Live Spotlight confirms rumors of a cable-esque service for Xbox Live. According to the video “nearly 40” providers are being added including. HBO Go, SyFy, Bravo, Comcast, and Verizon FiOS and more this holiday. When exactly is this holiday? Let’s hope they’re talking Halloween, but I’m going to go ahead and guess they’re talking about the more significant winter ones.

What’s also exciting is the utilization of the Kinect and voice-activated Bing search to browse through content. Examples on the video include searches such as “Xbox Bing, Fast and the Furious” and “Play.”

Check out the trailer below.

    I really don’t want to have to say xbox before every command, It’d be way easier to just say the word.
