Orange will offer 30 TV channels on the Xbox Live platform. The deal between the two companies will see Orange customers able to change channels and control videos using voice and motion commands controlled by Xbox’s Kinect technology.
Xavier Perret, Orange’s director of strategic partnerships said, “Today, Orange TV is not just present on the family’s television set, but on every screen in the home. This partnership therefore allows Orange to offer a service to its customers who want Orange TV on their game console. We already found the Windows Phone interface attractive and are now drawn by the technological opportunities of the Xbox and Kinect offer, and the changes they will enable us to make to create even greater services at Orange.”
