IE Comes to the Living Room with Xbox

Today the Xbox team announced an update to the Xbox 360 dashboard that marks the beginning of some exciting stuff on the biggest screen in the house.  Internet Explorer has come to Xbox 360.

Starting today Internet Explorer will begin being rolled out on Xbox LIVE and will be available to Xbox LIVE Gold members. IE on Xbox enables you to view content on the web on your TV and includes great features like the ability to personalize your dashboard by pinning your favorite web sites and watching HTML5 videos on the web.

Earlier this year at the E3 conference the Xbox team demonstrated the power of bringing the Web to your TV on Xbox. Now with the upcoming release of Windows 8 on October 26th, customers can use Xbox Smart Glass to easily navigate the web through features like text input, scrolling, pinch and zoom providing a seamless experience between your TV and Windows 8 tablet and Windows Phone. 

If you are ready to give it a try, get an Xbox LIVE Gold membership to experience Internet Explorer and all the other great updates being released to the new Xbox 360 dashboard.
