Xbox Adds HBO Go, MLB.TV, Xfinity TV in Latest Media Update

Must See Entertainment and Style Videos

While many still use Xbox consoles for their original intention—playing, you know, actual video games—Microsoft has been on the forefront of adding new media services to Xbox Live. With the brand's latest update, Xbox users will be able to stream content from HBO Go, MLB.TV and Xfinity (a Comcast cable app)—provided they pay a subscription fee for each and have an Xbox Live gold membership.

Those who already have a subscription to HBO or use the HBO app will have access to the entire library of HBO shows. Baseball fans will be stoked to see that MLB.TV will allow out-of-market fans to watch every regular season game live through their consoles. Xfinity provides access to on-demand cable programming from Comcast.

All the new content providers are integrated with Kinect, so you'll be able to control your selections with your voice and movements. To learn more about the update, visit the Xbox homepage.
