Microsoft have been looking to get a TV style addition to their Xbox Live platform for quite some time and it looks like they might have actually got it all together. The new service is designed to offer on-demand services as well as some live streaming, though programming has to be confirmed.
There is also set to have Bing search support as well as Kinect commands to help navigate, utilising movement and voice controls. I can’t really see this improving things much. Nobody wants to go “channel 31”, it makes you sound dumb. People will just use the remote, I guarantee it.
