Voice control via Kinect and Bing is moving to the next level later this year. To make things easier you can now search for movies and video content by saying "Xbox, Bing, Sci-Fi" or "Comedy." A whole list of titles pop up so you can quickly select and watch what you want.
Being able to use a quick search functionality with just your voice because Microsoft has added a whole list of new content partners including Nickolodeon, Paramount, Machinima and Univision. Here's hoping that Paramount deal includes lots of Eddie Murphy movies because you'd be surprised how hard it is to find "Beverly Hills Cop" on streaming services.
Other partnership announcements include:
NBA Game Time/League Pass will bring 2400 Live games and highlights every season.
NHL GameCenter will bring 40 games/week with home/away broadcast options. Includes replays and highlights.
A variation of the Watch ESPN App on X360 will give gamers ESPN1-3 and ESPNU Live in HD.
