Partnering with 40 TV and entertainment providers, Microsoft's Xbox 360 will soon bring TV shows and live television to your living room through its dashboard interface.

What really makes this exciting is that this innovative, new service will integrate live, multi-channel streaming HD TV and Kinect voice and gesture commands via the Xbox.

We don't yet know how the service will look and how viewers will interact with content when they sit down with an Xbox 360 controller in their hand. Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of TV & Service Business Tom Gibbons said:
