Microsoft today announced the availability of Verizon’s FiOS TV app for Xbox One users. Using this app, FiOS customers can watch live TV through the revolutionary Kinect experience.
Today, our partnership continues to expand with Microsoft as customers who are Xbox Live Gold members and who subscribe to both FiOS TV and Internet service can watch up to 74 live channels through Xbox One using the free FiOS TV app. No additional hardware is required, and customers can integrate their TV experience with voice and gesture commands through Kinect for Xbox One. Just last month, we revealed the results of our FiOS Innovation Index, which surveyed over 900 consumers, asking about their tech and console interests. 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!
So now switching from a first person shooter to your personalized Verizon FiOS TV subscription is easier than ever. No matter what you’re doing on Xbox One, just say “Xbox go to Verizon FiOS TV.” It’s playoff season and if you want to watch two big games at the same time you can tap into your Verizon FiOS cable box using HDMI pass through and the TV app for game one and then snap the Verizon FiOS app to watch game 2 at the same time.
