Microsoft is rolling out an update to Xbox Live on Tuesday that will offer users a plethora of new content, including on-demand entertainment apps from HBO GO, Comcast Xfinity, and MLB.TV.
The apps are now available to Xbox 360 owners who subscribe to the aforementioned services. The latest addition brings the total number of apps available on Xbox Live to 36, and the new options are compatible with voice and gestures controls through Kinect.
"HBO and Xbox is a marriage of the two preeminent brands in their respective fields," Otto Berkes, senior vice president of consumer technology at HBO, said in a statement. "During my tenure at Microsoft, we always envisioned Xbox as an entertainment hub and the addition of HBO GO represents a coming of age for the platform. The experience is one that will impress both the HBO subscribers and the Xbox fans."
