Just in time for the holidays (and for CES 2013 attendees to demo at the Verizon booth)! Our FiOS TV App on Xbox 360 just got better.
The boundaries between TV and gaming continue to fade as Xbox adds another 49 live FiOS TV channels to the lineup for a total of 75. The new lineup includes a variety of popular channels including: AMC HD, NFL Network, Disney HD, History Channel HD, EPIX HD, PBS Kids Sprout and more.
Verizon continues to expand the borderless lifestyle for consumers with the announcement to enhance its partnership with Microsoft of adding more live, FiOS TV channels available over the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
