HBO GO, Comcast On Demand And MLB.TV Launch On Xbox Live


Microsoft today updated the Xbox Live with new video apps, bringing Comcast Xfinity TV, HBO Go and MLB.tv to the console.

Note that in all cases the content requires separate fees; to get the Comcast access, you need to be a Comcast subscriber, etc.



"HBO is bringing their entire catalogue of shows to Xbox, all searchable by voice," Microsoft's press release says.

HBO GO on Xbox 360 features an on-demand library including their hit original content from the past like "Deadwood," "Band of Brothers" and "Entourage," to current TV shows like "Eastbound & Down," "Game of Thrones," and "Boardwalk Empire".

Available in the U.S., the HBO GO cable channel offers its programming often before it?s shown on cable.

Microsoft also announced another addition to the XBox line-up: MLB.TV. MLB.TV on Xbox LIVE provides 2,430 games for you to watch live, or once they?ve gone final, or in a recap format, all in HD quality. Plus, you can pause and rewind games and highlights using just your voice and motion controls with Kinect for Xbox 360. With MLB.TV on Xbox LIVE, fans can choose between home and away broadcast feeds for every out-of-market regular season game, where available, as well as designate their favorite teams to ensure the live games and recaps they care about most are at the forefront each time they turn on their Xbox 360.

Users must purchase MLB.TV Premium. The cost for MLB.TV Premium is $124.99 for the year, or $24.99 per month.

This is the first time that Comcast has brought its On-Demand content to a console, and with Kinect for Xbox 360 you can find your favorite programming and control the experience with just the sound of your voice or wave of your hand.
