Xbox to Get Original TV Shows Early 2014

Posted on December 16, 2013 AT 04:01am

Microsoft’s TV executive Nancy Tellem has revealed that the first original Xbox television shows will air early 2014.

Unspecified original programming will be coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One “in the first quarter, at minimum second quarter,” Tellem told Variety.  “We aren’t Netflix, we aren’t Amazon, we’re a different animal,” she 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.

“Depending on the piece of content, the deals change. We’re talking about exclusives, exclusive first windows, exclusive second windows.”

Microsoft is yet to reveal details about its original programming, but we do know that a Halo television series is in the works, with Steven Spielberg producing.
