They will be integrating both YouTube and search engine Bing as soon as this fall to accompany services like Netflix, Hulu, Facebook, Twitter, and Last.fm. The interface will all be controlled through Kinect, the popular motion- and voice-controlled system that hit the market last year.
So basically what this means is that if you want to watch a TV show, movie, or web series, you say it's name and presto- Bing will show you all the various forms of your title. An E3 demo included a DVR feature and words from Microsoft's Mark Whitten - "This is the year that live television comes to Xbox 360 as we partner with leading television providers, both here in the U.S. and around the world. This is our vision of the future of television." There was no specific mention of who those cable partners would be, but expect them to be big players.
Tell us what you think of this announcement- do you currently have Xbox Live? And if not, will this information entice you to get one?
