Verizon has announced its US high-speed internet cable TV service FiOS will contain 26 channels when it launches through Xbox 360. As previously reported, in order to access Verizon’s service or any other TV offerings coming to the console, an Xbox Live Gold membership will be required. The service will be compatible with Kinect, and new customers can sign up for $89.99 per month which comes with a 12-month XBL Gold package and a copy of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. The various TV services coming to 360 are rumored for a December release. Thanks, PR Newswire.

    89 bucks a month??? That seems a bit steep! I assume this includes your telephone, ISP and cable TV fees? If this is on top of your monthly internet and TV package, I don’t see it attracting many customers!

    Only way I would consider paying for this is if it did include the phone, isp, and tv all rolled into one. But even so its not cheap.

    Well after the free year you’re still need the XBL Gold which is just sheer greediness.

    I mean you even need it for that twitter client on there o0

    Plus MS are so money focused they don’t care. They cant get the iPlayer on the xbox. If they just allowed it to be on there for free they would have it on a heartbeat. But they won’t, hence 360 owners miss out. I love the iPlayer on ps3.

    Cheap is something that doesn’t come to mind when talking about Microsoft. Damn. Everything costs way too much with them. I am on the verge of just getting the x360 out of the door and be done with it.
