Xbox 360

Xbox 360Microsoft announced a deal with Time Warner Cable that will bring a ton of live channels to Xbox 360 owners, the company announced on Friday. With all the emphasis on Microsoft’s mission to make the Xbox One the go-to device for watching cable TV, it’s nice to see that it hasn’t forgotten about the Xbox 360. The move follows similar partnerships Microsoft has made to bring live TV programming to the Xbox 360 from Verizon’s FiOS and Comcast’s Xfinity TV. The TWC deal will bring over 300 live channels to the Xbox 360, provided you’ve paid for an Xbox Live Gold membership. Some of those channels include AMC, BBC World News, Bravo, Cartoon Network, CNN, Comedy Central, Food Network, HGTV, and others. (I’m guessing that this includes all the channels currently available on TWC’s iOS apps, which is pretty much everything except for the local broadcast stations, aka affiliates for ABC, CBS, Fox, CW, etc.)
