Watching cable on your Xbox One was a big push for Microsoft when the console was first announced. Now TWC TV has officially been detailed for Xbox 360 integration.
Time Warner Cable today announced an agreement with Microsoft Corp. that will open the door to a new viewing experience for Time Warner Cable customers. In the upcoming months, the TWC TV app will be available on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system.
Time Warner Cable video subscribers who are Xbox Live Gold members will be able to watch up to 300 live TV channels through their Xbox 360. Customers can easily download the TWC TV app on the Xbox 360 and begin watching instantly.
“We are thrilled to partner with Microsoft in expanding the many ways our customers already connect to the content they love through TWC TV,” said Mike Angus, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Video for Time Warner Cable. “We look forward to introducing TWC TV to Xbox 360 and providing customers with this new viewing experience within the home.
