The lights are on
Starting next month, Verizon FiOS customers can download an app on the Xbox 360 and watch live streaming channels without the need for a set-top box.
The offer is available to customers who are Xbox Live Gold members and who subscribe to both FiOS TV and Internet service. 26 select FiOS TV channels will initially be available, depending on the customer's TV package. Kinect voice and gesture commands are also being integrated.
"Joining forces with Microsoft and Xbox, we are breaking the boundaries between TV and gaming, and furthering the borderless lifestyle Verizon customers enjoy with our new offers and services," said Eric Bruno, vice president of consumer and mass business product management for Verizon.
Customers who order FiOS TV and Internet service will receive Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and a 12-month Xbox Live Gold membership. You can check the availability of FiOS in your area here.
