Xbox TV coming this Christmas

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has announced that Xbox TV, a service that will provide access to TV channels including news and sport, will be launching by Christmas.

As CNN (via) reports, the service is similar to the Sky TV service on Xbox in the UK. Also heading to the console is Kinect voice-controls for Bing. “Certainly we all know the frustrations of using guides and menus and controllers, and we think a better way to do all of this is simply to bring Bing and voice to Xbox. You say it, Xbox finds it,” Ballmer said of the addition.

PlayStation has a TV on track for Christmas too… but that’s actually a TV.
