The Xbox 360: not just for games anymore. Today, Microsoft announced that beginning later this year, users with a Web-connected Xbox console – and an Xbox Live Gold account – will be able to stream television shows from a range of providers, including HBO Go, Verizon FiOS, Bravo, and SyFy. An exact release date has not yet been announced, although smart money is on a November or December launch.

"Today’s announcement is a major step toward realizing our vision to bring you all the entertainment you want, shared with the people you care about, made easy," Microsoft exec Don Mattrick said in a statement. "Combining the world’s leading TV and entertainment providers with the power of Kinect for Xbox 360 and the intelligence of Bing voice search will make TV and entertainment more personal, social and effortless."
