On January 6th of this year, AT&T announced that they would be utilizing the Xbox 360 as a set-top box. We now have word that this feature may be available to us on November 7th.
Not many services use Microsoft’s Mediaroom platform and maybe this will bring it back on the map. Likely, there will be a tab on the Xbox 360 Dashboard that’s similar to Zune Marketplace, Twitter, Facebook, etc…that will enable U-Verse customers to utilize the service.
The Xbox 360 will act as a receiver for the service and no price, if any, is set for it at this point in time. So if you already have the Slingbox, this may not be of use to you, but if you’ve been holding off until now, the wait might have been worth it.
