FiOS TV coming to Xbox


In October Microsoft announced that they would be bringing live TV to the Xbox sometime in the future. We now have more details other then it is coming, the first tidbit of info is that the first example of this new service will be provided by Verizon. Of course just like any other service through Xbox Live you will have to have an active Gold membership, but you will also need to be a Verizon FiOS subscriber as well. Depending on the package you have Verizon is offering up to 26 live channels, with more to possibly come down the line. You can call Verizon today to preorder your TV service, for just $89.99 a month you get the Triple Play package which comes with internet, TV, phone and a year of Xbox Live Gold. This new feature will be starting next month and will take advantage of the Kinect voice controls. As if this deal wasn’t a good enough already, customers who sign up before January 21, 2012 will also get a free copy of Halo: Anniversary Edition. As we’ve posted before, there are a lot of other TV and content providers coming to Xbox in the future, including Comcast. Stay tuned for more info as we learn about what else Microsoft has up their sleeves.
