Verizon and Microsoft today announced that the FiOS TV app, which launched for the Xbox 360 some time ago, is now available on the Xbox One.

The app allows FiOS subscribers (who are also Xbox Live Gold subscribers of course) to tap into nearly 80 live channels to stream complete with Kinect gesture and voice integration. This is in addition to the Xbox One’s built-in TV guide capabilities.

Read on for the details.

As Christmas nears and people line up to buy the latest tech gadgets and devices, FiOS customers are receiving an early gift: the immediate availability of the FiOS TV app for download on the Xbox One games and entertainment system from Microsoft.

People who are Xbox Live Gold members as well as FiOS TV and Internet service subscribers can watch up to 74 of the most popular live channels through Xbox One by using the free FiOS TV app. No additional hardware is required; and after downloading the app, customers can immediately start using voice and gesture commands to control the TV through Kinect for Xbox One.

“Gaming consoles have evolved into digital entertainment hubs, and partnering with Microsoft breaks down technology barriers and maximizes the value and enjoyment FiOS customers get from FiOS and their Xbox One,” said John Wimsatt, Verizon’s vice president of product development. “This is just the latest step we at Verizon are taking to deliver on the vision we have for our customers — anything they want, on any device, anytime, anywhere.”

In a revolutionary development for the living room, Xbox One brings together TV channels and entertainment apps into one seamless interface. Customers can create their own personal favorites through the Xbox One electronic program guide, called OneGuide, or pin their favorite apps and content to the home screen. For easy navigation, users can search for TV, movies, games or music scans across all apps to find exactly what they’re looking for — without having to hunt through each app individually or to juggle multiple screens across cable TV, video streaming services and other entertainment apps.
