Prepare to get your Mind. Blown. Verizon FiOS TV app now on Xbox One

By the end of 2013, if you’ve been a good boy or girl, you might be hooking up a new game console or enjoying new games and if the console happens to be an Xbox One, then you can also find and watch your favorite shows and movies using the Verizon FiOS TV app.

As Xbox Wire reports, “Microsoft has customers who are Xbox Live Gold members and who subscribe to both FiOS TV and Internet service can watch up to 74 live channels through Xbox One using the free FiOS TV app. No additional hardware is required, and customers can integrate their TV experience with voice and gesture commands through Kinect for Xbox One.”

No matter what you’re doing on Xbox One, just say “Xbox go to Verizon FiOS TV.” This will come in really handy during the NFL playoffs, when you want to watch two big games at the same time. You can tap into your Verizon FiOS cable box using HDMI pass-through and the TV app for one game, and then snap the Verizon FiOS app to watch the second game simultaneously. (Mind. Blown.)
