Today, Microsoft Corp. announced plans to roll out what it refers to as “the next generation of TV entertainment” on Xbox LIVE. Nearly 40 world-leading TV and entertainment providers, including Bravo, Comcast, HBO GO, Verizon FiOS and Syfy in the U.S.; BBC in the U.K., Telefónica in Spain; Rogers On Demand in Canada; Televisa in Mexico; ZDF in Germany; and MediaSet in Italy, will begin rolling out entertainment services to the console this holiday, in more than 20 countries.

“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,” said Don Mattrick, president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. “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.”

“We are continually evolving the television experience to bring Xfinity TV subscribers more personalized ways to search, find and watch the content they love,” said Sam Schwartz, president of Comcast Converged Products. “Our recently launched next-generation Xfinity TV platform is enabling us to bring Xfinity On Demand to a gaming console for the first time, and Kinect’s voice and gesture controls will offer our customers an innovative way to discover and enjoy Xfinity On Demand’s huge library of top shows and movies.”

Check out the full listing of both existing and new entertainment partners below and then let us know how you think this will impact the 360′s overall success moving forward. Of course, we’ll keep you posted as we learn more about the roll out process and upcoming Fall Dashboard Update.

I hope to see Ion on there. That would be pretty cool. If you don;t know what Ion is it is on channel 515 Hd or 15 on Fios. It has a lot of crime shows.

Or Fx... In case you don't know what Fx is...Fx Fx, has the movies.
