Xbox TV is Coming for Christmas

Posted Mon Sep 19, 2011 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Full details are still missing, but we'll certainly hear more before holiday shopping season starts!

In a conference last Wednesday, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer finally took the rumor of Xbox TV streaming and turned it into fact. We've been hearing a lot about this and more details are very hotly anticipated.

So what new details did we find out from the conference? Very little. We know that it's actually coming and we know that there will be "dozens or hundreds of additional video content suppliers," which could mean anything at launch.

This new service from Microsoft will likely replace traditional cable TV in many single TV homes, apartments and dorms, especially if it's priced well. One thing that hasn't been revealed yet is whether or not you'll be able to use the 360 as a DVR, which would make the whole thing that much more attractive.
