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.
