More home entertainment coming to Xbox 360

Techstination feature for Tuesday, June 14, 2011

    More home entertainment coming to the Xbox 360.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Microsoft’s Xbox 360, which has offered one of the best viewing experiences for streaming Netflix movies, will be adding more video content in the months to come.  And while details are sketchy, the company says that will include live TV.  Senior marketing director Albert Penello…

Well I think what’s great is Xbox has always had great partnerships in bringing live TV and there’ll be more great announcements about this in the future.”

At this month’s E3 video game industry conference, Microsoft’s focus was on new  capabilities for its hands free Kinect controller….

Now we’re essentially integrating the Kinect gestures, the controller gestures and also our partnership with Bing for voice search to bring a unified Dashboard experience to Xbox this fall.”

In addition to a variety of new games that will take advantage of Kinect as well.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
