Control TV with Kinect
With Kinect™ for Xbox 360® you can change channels, as well as play, pause, fast forward and rewind recorded TV and HD movies with the sound of your voice or the wave of your hand. It’s that easy. No remote required. Just say “Xbox” to reveal a series of voice commands.
- What you need
All you’ll need to get started is an Xbox 360 Starter Kit and an Xbox LIVE Gold membership. The starter kit includes a universal media remote control and all the necessary cables to get your Xbox 360 set-up as an additional digital box. And if you have a Kinect for your Xbox 360, you get the added features of gesture and voice control.
- Doubles as a digital box
You can also use your Xbox 360 as an additional Optik TV digital box, as well as record shows and access your existing PVR’s HD library, saving you money and space. When connected to a PVR, your Xbox 360 lets you watch recorded shows, set new recordings, as well as pause and replay live TV.
Access over 100 HD channels
Since every TELUS digital box is HD-ready, and every Optik TV™ package includes HD channels, you can experience the thrill of HD right from the start. Additional sports, adventure and movie theme packs are just some of the programming you can watch on over 100 HD channels – more than local cable providers. You’ll also enjoy:
- Crystal-clear picture
HD delivers the best picture and the best viewing experience. You will see more details and enjoy a sharper, clearer and more vibrant picture than you would with standard definition TV.
- True widescreen experience
Watch your favourite shows on a widescreen picture that delivers movies and sports that better fit your TV screen, providing a more intense viewing experience.
- Superior sound
