MLB TV, HBO GO, Comcast apps go live on on Xbox
It’s a big day for Xbox 360 users–kinda. If you’ve got a Xbox Live Gold membership and pay separately for the following services, you now have access to MLB.TV, HBO GO, and Comcast’s Xfinity video content. Microsoft rolled out the three applications today as part of its ongoing strategy to turn the six-year-old console into a living room legend. The new HBO GO app provides access to HBO’s entire catalog, including current hits like Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones. The Comcast Xfinity TV app is available to both Xfinity TV and Internet customers anywhere Comcast delivers its services. Baseball fans with a a premium Major Leave Baseball TV subscription in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. can watch live and archived games with the 360 app. Wanna look for signs of elevated testosterone levels in Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun? Use your Kinect and pause or rewind the action with voice and motion controls. Ah, technology.
