December 12, 2012 07.25 Europe/London By Robert Briel

Dutch cable operator Ziggo is developing an app for Microsoft’s Xbox live service, which will become available in 2013.

According to Marcel Nijhoff, CCO of Ziggo, customers are demanding to use Ziggo services on the device of their own choosing.

The Ziggo Xbox 360 App will be similar in look and feel of the Ziggo TV App for iOS and Android. Users can use Kinect control or the regular remote.

The Xbox app will offer a channel list, EPG and the possibility to view live TV. At a later stage, VOD and catch-up TV will also be added.

The number of available live channels depends on the type of subscription the customer has. Also, a XboxGold subscription is mandatory.
