Xbox 360 owners in the United States can soon stream hundreds of live TV channels and access on-demand content through the Time Warner Cable application that will be released today on Xbox Live.
Users must have an Xbox Live Gold membership and subscription to Time Warner Cable to access the application.
Supported channels include AMC, BBC World News, Bravo, Cartoon Network, CNN, Comedy Central, Food Network, HGTV, and more. Users will be able to control the programming using their voice through the Kinect.
This deal, announced in June, is similar to the existing offer for Verizon FiOS subscribers, where users can watch many of the same channels live through their Xbox 360s with Kinect compatibility.
Live TV streaming through Microsoft's next-generation Xbox One won't require a separate application, as it currently does on the Xbox 360. The console will plug directly into a user's cable box and feed live TV through the system with an HDMI cable.
