FOXTEL is the first broadcaster to provide Australians with voice and gesture control to find and watch their favourite live television programmes. With Kinect and FOXTEL on Xbox 360, users can navigate through the new-look user interface and locate sports, movies and TV shows with simple voice commands or simple hand gestures.
Voice and gesture control via Kinect brings a new dimension to home entertainment and how people control commands like pause, play, fast forward and stop, as well as browsing through menu items.
Users can tailor the service with more than 30 world-leading FOXTEL channels on the live streaming television service including AFL with FOOTY PLAY, six BigPond TV channels, Catch Up TV, and hundreds of blockbuster films, library movies and TV episodes from On Demand.
Kimberley Francis, Head of Xbox, Microsoft, Australia said: “By making technology invisible we make it even easier for people to interact with their entertainment. People have been communicating with voice and gestures for thousands of years and now we are connecting people to their digital entertainment in much the same instinctive way.”
