Xbox One Gets Verizon FiOS Live-TV App17 Dec, 2013 By: Chris Tribbey
Xbox One owners who also subscribe to Verizon’s FiOS TV service can now access 74 live channels directly via the game console, thanks to a new app.
The Verizon FiOS TV app for Xbox One is accessible to Xbox Live Gold members and works with the Kinect voice and motion control system built-in to the console.
“Just last month, we revealed the results of our FiOS Innovation Index, which surveyed over 900 consumers, asking about their tech and console interests,” Fowler Abercrombie, manager of broadband product management and development for Xbox, wrote in a blog post. “Nearly two-thirds of our respondents said they want to watch streaming video on their game console. Verizon listened, and now the FiOS TV experience is available right now on your Xbox One.”
