Microsoft and Time Warner Cable Announce Xbox 360 Deal

If one thing was clear from Microsoft's Xbox One event, it was that the Redmond-based company is focusing on the Xbox as an all-in-one entertainment device now more than ever. In keeping with that goal, Microsoft and Time Warner Cable today announced a new deal that will see TWC customers offered access to up to 300 live TV channels through their Xbox 360.

"We are thrilled to partner with Microsoft in expanding the many ways our customers already connect to the content they love through TWC TV," said Mike Angus, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Video for Time Warner Cable. "We look forward to introducing TWC TV to Xbox 360 and providing customers with this new viewing experience within the home. We are very excited about Microsoft’s vision for entertainment and the vast possibilities Xbox offers."

Access to live TV channels will come via the TWC TV app, which will become available on the Xbox 360 in the coming months. The app will be free from the Xbox Live Marketplace, but (obviously) the content you have access to will depend on your Time Warner subscription.

    *light bulb* Here's something new you should try, a console that plays games. I don't need a new set top box. Wait I don't play console games anyway, Why am I even here? I've turned into a troll.

    So instead of watching Time Warner on your TV like normal, you can buy an Xbox and consume your internet bandwidth to watch it. Brilliant.

    @anomaly - Welcome to the world of tomorrow.

    It really is crazy how many companies are starting to push for IPTV yet ISPs still want to limit bandwidth. Luckily I will be getting unlimited (no FUP) in a week or so so I can start to really enjoy my Netflix without always thinking about my usage.
