Verizon has announced that 26 channels will be available on the Xbox 360 for Xbox Live Gold members and Verizon’s FIOS TV & Internet subscribers. Those that haven’t signed up for FIOS can purchase FIOS TV, FIOS 35/35 MBps Internet, Verizon voice service, a 12 month Xbox Live Gold Membership and a copy of Halo Anniversary for $89.99 a month.
“Joining forces with Microsoft and Xbox, we are breaking the boundaries between TV and gaming, and furthering the borderless lifestyle Verizon customers enjoy with our new offers and services,” said Eric Bruno, vice president of consumer and mass business product management for Verizon. “We are putting the controls in our customers’ hands, and giving them the ability to watch TV on another dynamic device that they can control with voice and gesture commands. Whether it’s your Xbox, your mobile device, your PC or your traditional television, Verizon will continue to deliver the programming consumers want, where, where and how they want it.”
