The Verge is reporting that the next Xbox will feature a lot of TV options. The console will be working similarly to Google TV and take over your TV and set-top box.

It would also require an internet connection which would allow it to use always-on streaming. This does not mean the games would need internet connection, as that is not confirmed yet.

“The functionality will work by taking a cable box signal and passing it through to the Xbox via HDMI, allowing Microsoft’s console to overlay a UI and features on top of an existing TV channel or set-top box,” The Verge wrote.

“We’re told that this is a key part of the next-generation Xbox and that it will go a step further than Google’s TV implementation thanks to Microsoft’s partnerships with content providers. Extended support for various cable services will be rolled out gradually, but the basic functionality will be available at launch.”

The Xbox 720 is rumoured to be revealed on May 21st and we will keep you updated once Microsoft does reveal the thing.
