Xbox One and Xbox 360 getting original TV shows by early 2014

Hopefully whatever Spielberg has cooking for Halo will last longer than Terra Nova did.

 

Xbox will get original TV shows early 2014, according to the person in charge of it.

Microsoft’s TV executive Nancy Tellem told Variety the company will release unspecified original programming on Xbox One and Xbox 360 through Xbox Live "in the first quarter, at minimum second quarter".

Microsoft is yet to reveal details about its original programming plan, but we do know a Halo TV show is in the works, with legendary director Steven Spielberg producing.

Halo: The Television Series was announced at the Xbox One reveal event in May this year. It’s a "premium" live action show with Spielberg on board to executive produce and video game developer 343 Industries heavily involved.

It seems Microsoft has had a tricky job explaining Xbox’s offering to Hollywood, hence the delay in launching television content on the consoles.

"We aren’t Netflix, we aren’t Amazon, we’re a different animal," Tellem explained.

"We’re neither or we’re a little like them. It all depends. The lack of black and white and this is the template and this is what we’re following is very difficult. As we continue to do deals everyone’s going to get more comfortable."

She added: "Depending on the piece of content, the deals change. We’re talking about exclusives, exclusive first windows, exclusive second windows."
