Microsoft Seeking To Develop Shows for Xbox Live Service

Posted by TurtleGirl On December - 12 - 2011

It’s been on the cards for a while and it’s been inevitable that Microsoft will take the next step in driving more people to use their Xbox 360 and turn it into a more media filled console. According to Bloomberg, Microsoft is seeking to hire a television executive to develop original shows as part of a drive to expand its Xbox Live game and video service, according to people with knowledge of the company’s plans.

Microsoft has hired Tom Schneider, a partner at Stratis LLC, to conduct the search, said the people, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly. Two former NBC executives, Marc Graboff and Jeff Gaspin, have been approached, they said.
 

Microsoft, based in Redmond, Washington, is trying to turn the Xbox console into an entertainment hub, rather than mostly a game machine. The company, the world’s largest software producer, is introducing a TV service with programs from almost 40 TV and entertainment suppliers to draw more users to the Web- enabled product.
 

Original programming would help Microsoft differentiate the service from those offered by competitors including Apple Inc. and Google Inc. (GOOG) Some of the Xbox’s top-selling games were created by Microsoft and the company is looking to replicate that success with program it develops.
 

The TV service will include content from partners like Time Warner Inc. (TWX)’s HBO, Sony Corp.’s Crackle and the BBC.
