BT offers BT Vision service through Xbox

Antony Savvas

BT broadband customers will now be able to use a Microsoft Xbox 360 gaming console to access internet TV, on-demand movies and sport through the BT Vision IPTV package.

BT Vision, which is already powered by the Microsoft Mediaroom Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) platform, will be available through the Xbox 360 from the middle of this year.

Existing customers currently use orthodox digiboxes to access the service. The Xbox-based service will be available to existing and future Xbox 360 console owners. Customers will still be able to access the service through standard set-top boxes.

The Xbox Live gaming service will be integrated into the BT Vision package, providing users with a wide range of community-based features, such as voice chat and sending and receiving text and voice messages - all while watching TV.
