Microsoft first announced its plans for Xbox TV service back at CES while hiding most of the details. Microsoft continued to spread the fact that TV service is coming to Xbox this fall whenever it found chances. Now According to sources of Digiday, Microsoft is set to partner with Comcast and Verizon, perhaps within a month so as to push Xbox holiday sales. Consumers can subscribe to Comcast or FiOS TV packages directly through Xbox instead of buying or installing another set-top box. Microsoft already has similar deal with AT&T U-Verse, so this rumored Verizon & Comcast deal may be imminent. Anyway, Xbox users are the winners.

    I really “LOVE” that you’re double posting everything on both websites. What’s even better is that on Twitter, you post links to WMPowerUser, which then re-links to this site.

    Solution? Unfollow…
