Microsoft (MSFT: Quote) and France Telecom-Orange, a unit of France Telecom (FTE: Quote), reached an agreement to offer an intuitive and innovative new service to Orange TV customers in the spring of 2012: voice and motion-activated television control using Kinect's magical technology. On December 6, Microsoft and Orange inked a deal that allows for Orange TV broadcasts on the Xbox1 game console.

Xavier Perret, Orange's Director of Strategic Partnerships commented, "This partnership therefore allows Orange to offer a service to its customers who want Orange TV on their game console. We already found the Windows Phone interface attractive and are now drawn by the technological opportunities of the Xbox and Kinect offer, and the changes they will enable us to make to create even greater services at Orange."

Starting in the Spring of 2012, 30 Orange TV channels, including the major channels on the French market, would be available on the Xbox 360. The company also noted that Orange TV customers would be able to experience a new way to use their television through voice and motion control thanks to Kinect's magic. Also, users would be able to interact with Orange TV to change channels, launch a video, pause the video, etc., with no remote control required, Orange added.
