AT&T Brings Xbox Set-Top Compatibility in November

You'll still need at least one traditional set-top in your home, but the long awaited feature is finally coming.

If you're an Xbox 360 owner and an AT&T U-verse subscriber, you've probably all but given up on the idea of using your 360 as a set-top box. The feature was announced so long ago that it seemed like it would have happened by now if it was going to.

The folks over at Engadget got a tip from an anonymous source, followed by several more similar tips, that reveals upcoming Xbox 360 set-top compatibility. According to the source, you'll be able to use your Xbox as a set-top on November 7th of this year.

You'll still need a cable box in your home, which is a little bit of a bummer, and the information that's been revealed says that a hard drive will be required. There's no word on a size requirement though, so it's unclear if the 4GB Xbox 360 S will work or not.
